Fast fashion and its environmental impact

"Today, we wear clothes like condom. We wear them once and throw them away" This boutique in Sydney wants to fight against "fast fashion" and its environmental impact. This is how they do it.

    Uhhh I’m sorry but I don’t believe that any young people are wearing clothes just once. In this economy? (Especially for younger generations) that is laughable, I want to see the numbers

    I have some outfits that have been around for 45 years. I never get rid of textile...I rework, reconstruct, repair & reuse & recycle or give away to people who like my stuff. the only things I buy new are underwear & winter boots!

    I think we can chop it and make some rag, gloves or even a house.

    Who wears clothes once and then throws them away?!? Not anyone I know. Maybe the 1% of rich ass elite women only wear things once. But they don’t throw them away I’m sure since they buy expensive ass clothes. Also, Goodwill, and Salvation Army and many other consignment and second hand and “vintage” stores have been around for a long time. Nothing new. But yes, the clothing industry creates lots of pollution and wastes tons of water.

    This is a cool idea but there should be a way to buy and keep your favorite pieces. I hate shopping for clothes and I literally hang on to my favorite clothes until they're worn out. I'd never use a shop like this because it's too much like traditional shopping but you don't even get to keep what you'll actually wear.

    Great idea...as a former vintage store owner, I would suggest this concept would work best in an area where there's a larger, more fashion-oriented demographic.
