What Is Slow Fashion?: A Guide to Upcycling and the Movement Towards Sustainable Fashion

The fast fashion industry has gotten out of control and its environmental impact is devastating. 

Luckily, there are artists, designers, celebrities, and businesspeople out there working to combat the fast fashion industry.

Let’s take a look at what exactly the term “slow fashion” means and how practices like upcycling and sustainable sourcing are helping save the world.

What Is Slow Fashion?

Slow fashion encourages consumers and manufacturers to recycle, upcycle, and source their materials sustainably.

The movement encourages people to consider where their clothes are coming from, to find creative ways to reuse their old clothing rather than throwing it out.

It's turning something used that would otherwise be thrown away into a new piece of clothing.

What Is Upcycling?

This involves sourcing fabric or other materials from old pieces of clothing, blankets, towels, or anything else that might look stylish and turning them into an entirely new piece of clothing.

If you’re going to shop with online retailers, find out which brands source their materials sustainably and produce their clothing through sustainable processes.
