Mending Your Clothes is a Great Way to be Sustainable

Mending Your Clothes is a Great Way to be Sustainable

We all do it. You find a hole in a piece of clothing and it's unwearbale and must be thrown away.

But what if we shifted our thinking? What if our first thought was, can I fix it? Our grandparents certainly used to mend their clothes so why can't we!

So I pulled out one of my favorite jackets I had in my box of hole-y clothes to send to our recycler. Why not give mending a shot? 

My #1 Tip to be More Sustainable

My #1 Tip to be More Sustainable
Being more sustainable is not an all or nothing pursuit. It's about looking at how we live and identifying habits and products we can change to be more sustainable. If you do everything at once you're likely to fail. It's like New Year's when you start a diet, a new exercise regimen, and swear off beer and eating out. Most of us will probably fail if we try and do all those things at once, I certainly would!
