What does plastic free have to do with fashion accessories?  That's a good question?  Read on and we'll give you a good answer.  Thanks for checking us out! 

 

Plastic Free July is all about refusing single-use plastic during July, raising awareness of disposable plastic and challenging people to do something about it.

 

Disposable plastic certainly has its place in the fast fashion industry, and we can do something about that.

 

Plastic Bags and Fast Fashion

It’s easy to buy cheap, trendy fashion items. Buy a shirt or a purse on sale and you could spend less than what you’d pay for a cup of coffee (which, by the way, you could be drinking out of a reusable container).

 

One of the problems with this easy access to cheap clothing? It comes in plastic bags and wrapping.

 

If you drop by the mall to pick up your trendy fashion item, you will almost certainly be carrying it home in a disposable plastic bag. If you order it online, it may arrive in a plastic mailer, protected by a plastic bag or wrapping.

 

It might seem like there’s no escaping the plastic packaging that comes with fashion. One of the simplest solutions for your shopping bag problem, however, is to bring your own reusable shopping bags.  You can also shop stores like ours that reuse shipping materials and find ways to not use plastic in shipping.

 

Another option is to avoid fast fashion. Support your planet by shopping from retailers who commit to eco-friendly clothing and accessories, and eco-friendly packaging for those items.

 

Recycled Plastics = Textiles

Plastics are already out in the world, so what can we do about it?

 

Fashion is addressing this issue by recycling plastic items to create textiles. Items like this adjustable, quality crafted clutch from Rewilder take plastic that was en route to the landfill, and repurpose them into fabrics that are durable, beautiful, and better for the world.

 

During Plastic Free July, seek out recycled materials and recycle your own unavoidable plastics, too. At the end of July, there is no need to stop.

 

Plastic Free Every Day 

July is a great time to start. If you are interested in reducing or stopping your use of plastics every day, addressing your wardrobe can make a big impact.

 

Polyester fabrics, fleece, acrylic, nylon, spandex and other synthetics, when washed, shed plastic microfibers that contribute to the plastic in the world’s waterways.

 

Studies say 94 percent of drinking water in the USA contains plastic lint from clothing!

 

This July, commit to going plastic-free. From there, it will be easier to make positive changes that benefit you and your world every day.
