“If you’ve ever looked at your overflowing wardrobe and felt you could do better – for fashion cred and for the environment – then this is the book for you.”  I can’t say it any better the blurb on the back of this book.

Dress with Sense by the Redress TeamThis guide is written by the Redress team. Redress is an environmental NGO working to reduce waste in the fashion industry.

Follow them on instagram @getredressed or go to their website www.redress.com.hk/ for lots of inspiration or read this book!

This book addresses all the negative impacts that clothing has on the environment and steps you through the clothing lifecycle so you can make better choices.

From BUY to WEAR to CARE and then to their DISPOSAL.  Easy and simple instructions on what are your options.

 

Hints on where to go to find sustainable and ethical clothing. How to mend your clothes or get rid of that tricky stain.  Ideas to refashion or restyle your clothes or simply what to do with those clothes you don’t want anymore.

Dress with Sense by Redress
Why do we need to start thinking consciously about our clothes?

Designers and bloggers have their say and give their tips towards a conscious closet.  Gorgeous illustrations too by Charlotte Trounce.

I picked this book up from the Brisbane City Council library (how sustainably chic of me!) so you can too.

So if you feel inspired to review your wardrobe, this book is a great start and if you need help, give me a call.  Enjoy the read and your week.
