Love Your Clothes
Love Your Clothes is a national campaign to tackle how the UK buys, uses and disposes of their clothes. An estimated 336,000 tonnes of clothes are put into UK landfills every year when there are many other ways people can make use of their old clothing.
The campaign aims to tackle clothing waste in four ways:
- Buying Clothes - buying clothes that a better made and sustainable that are made to last
- Care and Repair - offering tips to help people make repairs and take better care of their clothes
- Refashion and Upcycle - offering tips on how you can upgrade your wardrobe by adding accessories and combining clothes in new ways
- Unwanted Clothes - rather than throwing clothes in the bin, why not sell, recycle or swap your clothes
