Sustainable Shopping: Where to Start?

There’s a big movement for change in the world right now, with the protection of our planet and a focus on sustainability taking the forefront. So when it comes to shopping for clothes, it’s more important than ever to think about how we can be as sustainable as possible.

That’s why we’ve compiled our top tips for sustainable shopping, so you can make sure you’re taking the right steps. Because as much as the responsibility lies with brands to be conscious, sustainable and ethical, it also lies with shoppers who have an influence with how they spend. Read our sustainable shopping know-hows below.

Be curious

Investigate the story behind the brands you’re purchasing from and don’t be afraid to be curious. What do they tell you about how their clothes are made, or the materials they use? Here at Lavender Hill Clothing, we endeavour to be transparent so you know exactly what goes into each garment and how that impacts our planet and its people. We think it’s your right as a customer to know this - and our responsibility to use the best practices possible.

Buy items designed to last

This is an important one: buying an item that is designed to last (if it’s accessible to you) can make the world of difference. Spending money on a cheap garment that falls apart after a couple of washes has to make you question the wellbeing of those who made it, and the waste it creates. Whether you create a capsule wardrobe with core pieces designed to last, or simply re-think where you buy your clothes, choosing not to purchase fast-fashion could be the real difference you make with your shopping habits.
