REFUSE FAST FASHION
Fast fashion is a threat to human rights and equity, as well as a threat for our environnement and ecosystems. Buy less, buy better, buy local, buy used. Look at the labels, take an interest in the origin of our workers who made them and take a look at the fiber content.
REWEAR YOUR CLOTHES
Wear several times instead of buying, share your wardrobe, exchange your clothes. Resell your clothes, circulate them, but above all do not accumulate them. A new party to wear an old dress that you love so much, instead of a new dress at each party;) Pssst rewearing your clothes also means wearing them more than once before washing them. Avoiding washing here and there saves a lot of water.

REFASHION YOUR CLOTHES
Divert your clothes from landfill by altering them or wearing them in another way, by changing their vocations and upcycling them into other something new.
RECOGNIZING TEXTILE WASTE
In Quebec, clothes recycling means reselling clothes. If your clothes has no resell value it is textile waste. If it is damage or torn, if the zipper is broken or if a button is missing it won't be sold and therefor not recycled. If it cannot be sold, the garment will have to be thrown away by the non-profit you gave it too, which entails additional costs. By throwing your textile waste away yourself rather than donating it to a charity you reduce the operating costs of this organization and you reduce the carbon footprint of your textile waste.
