Love fashion but feel guilty about contributing to dye-polluted rivers and sweatshop labor? This book is a cute and concise guide to conscious fashion—how and when to buy, how to properly care for clothing, and ideas for renting, swapping, recycling. It’s your pathway to out of the fast fashion trap that values quantity over quality.

— Natalie


As part of a growing global awareness of the importance of eco-conscious living, both for the planet and as a means of promoting fair labor practices, more people than ever before are seeking to dress in an environmentally friendly way. On a broader scale, initiatives to promote a more sustainable approach to fashion have made headlines and grown like never before, from the release of the high-profile documentary The True Cost to the launch of the worldwide "Fashion Revolution" campaign.

This timely book is organized into four chapters--Buy, Wear, Care, and Dispose--each containing a short introduction with essential information followed by practical tips and illustrated case studies to help you make the first step toward a more sustainable wardrobe. A detailed reference section recommends not only the best ethical fashion labels and collections but also eco-friendly fabrics, standards, and certifications; cleaning methods; renting, swapping, and recycling initiatives; and much more.
