Saving The Planet Through Wholesale Clothing

There are thousands of different ways to approach saving the earth. Concepts such as reducing waste and recycling in the general sense are well-known ideas for the average individual. However, few people are aware of what kind of impact they can make on the waste that occurs all around the world simply by being more discerning about what clothing they wear and how they choose to purchase it. Clothing that is carelessly tossed into the garbage actually accounts for a stunning amount of material in landfills all across the world each year. Discarded clothing is actually responsible for for up to 13 million tons of material that is causing damage to the environment. This represents an estimated 13.9 percent of textiles that are put into clothing and footwear. This amount of waste is deplorable. Additionally, the amount of resources that are needed to produce new clothing on a regular basis is also extraordinary.














 In order to turn things around for the environment, consumers must change what they wear, where they buy it, and how they buy it. There are several strategies that can start you off on the right foot. The first of these is to only buy wholesale clothing when you buy new items. Wholesale clothing can be attained through licensed retailers at discount prices. Supporting businesses that take this approach dramatically reduces the number of clothing articles that will be discarded on an annual basis once there are minor fashion changes or a season ends. There are also advantages to the buyer as well. It is relatively easy to find high-quality clothing at low prices when you explore the wholesale clothing in your area.

There are many examples of clothing stores all over the world that depend on this kind of practice. In many cases, stores will buy clothing in bulk from large retailers or designers in fashion headquarters such as Paris and France to sell in their own country once a season ends or a few years pass. Rather than allow the clothing to go into the landfills, they give buyers the opportunity to find great deals and reduce their impact on the environment while still living with relevant fashion. This approach to wholesale is global as well. Different hemispheres experience seasons at different times, allowing people to help the environment while still living in fashion-forward yet responsible way.















 
Keeping clothing out of landfills is also easily done due to the fact that the majority fashion takes time to disseminate from fashion meccas to smaller regions and countries throughout the globe. In other words, re-utilizing what would other be deemed garbage by the fashion industry is a simple task that opens up the doors for fair-trade practices. Wholesale clothing is a means of supporting the fashion industry while still practicing responsibility when it comes to the personal impact that you make on the environment. Re-utilization in fashion also extends beyond designer outfits as a whole as well. The same principles hold true for fabrics and textiles as well. Typically referred to as Sustainable Fashion, this movement towards greener fashion is being embraced by all types of people. It has been brought in to the limelight by actors such as Cameron Diaz, Selma Hayek, and Natalie Portman.

Many designers have taken notice of how their clothing is being distributed to people all over the world. Fashion Week has featured many designers who have dedicated themselves to sustainable practices in all elements of their business. From sustainable production to the stores that have access to their clothing, the idea of going green when you go shopping is gaining a huge amount of momentum. There are also tons of online wholesale clothing outlets dedicated to responsible shopping. Among the leading names in the UK is QClothing that sells clothes directly to stores around the world. Other options include Coyuchi, Repair the World and Localclothes.
It does not take much effort to transform the way you shop nor does it require a change in your sense of style. However, the good that you do for the earth can make a real, positive difference.

  12. This is a great idea! It's better to recycle some clothes and at least, make a new style out of it. In my case, I donate some clothes which it doesn't fit anymore. They're of quality of course! :D
