From the water used to grow crops that make our fabrics, to the dependency on the oil industry for synthetic fibres, fashion is one of the most polluting industries in the world.

Total greenhouse gas emissions related to textiles production are equal to 1.2 billion tons annually - more than those of all international flights and maritime shipping trips combined, according to the Ellen MacArthur Foundation. 

By giving items you no longer want and choosing preloved next time you need to refresh your wardrobe, you are extending the lifespans of garments, reducing the production of new items, and preventing fashion in perfectly good conditions from going to the landfill.

By supporting preloved, you are contributing to fashion’s circular economy.
