WHEN YOU SHOP…

Fashion (Canada) - - Fashion -

• READ CLOTH­ING LA­BELS

Fab­ric blends can be a men­ace to re­cy­cling ef­forts. Even 100 per cent polyester is eas­ier to re­cy­cle.

• BUY OR­GANIC COT­TON

Con­ven­tion­ally pro­duced cot­ton is re­spon­si­ble for 24 per cent of the global sales of in­sec­ti­cide.

• LOOK FOR NAT­U­RAL FI­BRES,

like eth­i­cally farmed al­paca and mo­hair and or­ganic linen.

• IN TERMS OF SYN­THETIC FI­BRES,

try bam­boo/vis­cose, Ten­cel, re­cy­cled polyester (rPet means it came from plas­tic bot­tles) and re­cy­cled ny­lon.

• RE­CY­CLE EV­ERY­THING

Socks, tow­els and sheets can go to Value Vil­lage to be shred­ded for use by other in­dus­tries. And all H&M lo­ca­tions al­low you to drop off cloth­ing of any brand in any con­di­tion for re­cy­cling.

• RENT

Dot-com dar­ling Rent the Run­way is ex­per­i­ment­ing with same­day de­liv­ery in New York.
