Tips for Embracing and Handling Sustainable Summer Fashion

Do you want to rip the runway in an eco-friendly way? We’ve got you covered. Here at GotSneakers we want to share some helpful tips to embrace summer fashion in sustainable ways. Check them out below.

Don’t Follow Fashion, Lead Fashion

Instead of trying to keep up with all of the latest fashion trends that are out there all over the world, become a trendsetter. Develop your own sense of style by wearing eco-friendly clothing and accessorizing. You can shop at vintage or thrift stores in person or online and purchase shirts, jackets, dresses, pants, scarves, shoes, and tons of accessories. You can also shop second-hand at garage sales in your community. You would be surprised what you’ll find to wear. You know what they say, one person’s trash is another person’s treasure. Try following social media influencers who are into environmentally friendly fashion to get inspired and come up with ideas of your own. Remember it’s more about quality than quantity.

Clothing Brands

Research the clothing brands you’re buying your clothes from. Find out what their mission is, what they stand for and if they’re using animals for their products. You would want to try and purchase clothes from brands who use organic and recyclable materials that are non-toxic and don’t cause harm to the environment. This goes for your pets too if you have any. Some of us like to dress our cats and dogs in shirts or other clothes. You should be mindful of where your pets’ clothes are coming from as well.

Make Your Clothing Last

Be sure to take great care of your clothes and shoes. Be cautious on how you wash your clothing, depending on the clothes you may have to hand wash or air dry. There’s also eco-friendly laundry detergent you can use that can help the planet. If you find holes or rips in your clothes,  try sewing it back up or donating your clothes to thrift stores or charitable organizations. If you have old sneakers that you don’t want to wear any more, don’t throw them away. Use our free Clean Out program to make room in your closet and earn cash for every pair of sneakers you send us. All while doing good for the planet.

At GotSneakers, our mission is to partner with the sneaker community to recycle and reuse quality pre-loved sneakers. Our Individual Seller program keeps sneakers out of landfills and reduces toxic chemicals from being released in our air and soil. All reusable sneakers from our Individual Seller program are recirculated to secondhand markets so people can access quality, pre-owned footwear at affordable prices. All heavily used and damaged footwear is recycled to reuse materials or to convert waste into new energy.

Encourage your family, friends, classmates, and co-workers to embrace sustainability in fashion this summer. The more of  us that care and take care of the environment, the better the planet will be for all of us for years to come. If you’re ready to make a difference, contact us today!
