In just thirty years, the fashion industry has managed to rival the devastating effects that both oil extraction and 10,500 years of domesticating cattle and farming have had on our environment.
Swapping worn clothes and sharing items that are made to last instead of buying new, in an earth-saving ecosystem. Not only does it help our environments by discouraging landfill, but it allows you to connect with like-minded humans that want to make a difference and share in the joy of pre-loved clothing and those in the industry actively making a difference.
By advocating slow and sustainable fashion choices, you are choosing quality over quantity and valuing the craftsmanship that goes into producing individual garments – and your individual style now has room to play!
Allow the self-expression that mass produced fast fashion has tried to squash into moulds.
This ‘swapping ecosystem’ is something that anyone, anywhere can benefit from.
Our community is fully inclusive in the belief that we can all learn from and support each other as we grow. It’s ok to admit a percentage of your wardrobe currently goes unworn and it is fine to shop – we are all on this journey to a waste-free wardrobe together.
Start today and recognise we all as individuals can make a difference
Hi, I am Sarah, and I am lucky enough to have called Queenstown home for over four years at about the same time I moved here I discovered the fashion industry has caught up with the oil and meat industries for the damage it is doing for to our planet.
In fact: The textiles industry creates MORE POLLUTION than AVIATION and SHIPPING combined.
I love clothes, but facts are facts and because of that I stopped shopping, I have only bought second hand for the last three years and truly, I have never dressed better.
Introducing awear – your home for sustainability, style, and savings.
Supporting you on your journey to a waste free wardrobe.
