Say no to fast fashion! Buy vintage!

Buying vintage & second-hand clothing is a sustainable solution because garments already exist so you can save all the negative impact of production.

Fast fashion facts (yes, we are a slow fashion store):

- The industry is responsible for high carbon emissions, wastewater production, and large amounts of landfill waste. Fast fashion is second only to oil as the world’s largest polluter.

- The fast fashion industry is responsible for producing 20% of global wastewater.

- In 2015, the fast fashion industry used 80 billion cubic metres of freshwater.

- The fast fashion industry produces 97% of our clothes overseas.
The industry exploits cheap labour in developing countries. Here, workers rights are often non-existent and environmental standards are low.

- The fashion industry produced 92 million tons of waste in 2015 alone.

- With current technologies, it would take 12 years to recycle what the fast fashion industry creates in 48 hours


- Fast fashion is a huge contributor to plastic pollution.
