How about trying to make an exercise where instead of walking into that shop once a week or more, we make the 30-wears-rule? Everyone should really think before they buy something and ask – will I wear it a minimum of 30 times? So, if you can’t answer – “Yes, I’ll wear it a minimum of 30 times.” – don’t buy it. Who needs all these clothes? Who?
– Livia Firth, sustainable fashion champion and founder of the Green Carpet Challenge.
Sounds like a New Year’s resolution to me.
I have some clothes that go way past 30 wears. A cashmere sweater, several skirts, and long sleeve cotton tees that, truthfully, I bought at Target years ago. (Gotta give the Target store credit.)
So hey, let’s take up Ms. Firth’s challenge in 2016 and think before we buy – Will I wear this at least 30 times? If the answer is no or even I’m not sure, leave it in the store. You’ll feel good for doing so.
