Happy Earth Day from the Last Yarn team 🌏🌱

Overproduction is a big problem within the clothing industry. Clothes produced cheaply and at mass scale leave a negative footprint on the environment.

1. The average consumer now buys 60% more clothing than they did 15 years ago — The UN Alliance for Sustainable Fashion.

2. Less than 1% of textiles and clothes are genuinely recycled into new textiles and clothes — The Ellen MacArthur Foundation

3.Fast Fashion produces more carbon emissions per minute than driving a car around the world six times. — Oxfam

4. Extending the average life of clothes by just nine months would save £5 billion in resources used to supply, launder, and dispose of clothing. — WRAP

Let’s start to change the way the industry works to a system that prioritises ecological and social transparency.

#FashionRevolutionWeek (the world’s largest fashion activism movement) starts this Sunday.

Whether you dedicate ten minutes on your route home from work or five days of intense activism, reflecting on how our fashion choices and the wider fashion industry has an effect on social and environmental change is the first step to real change.

The theme for the 2024 campaign is centred around ‘How to be a Fashion Revolutionary.’

So here goes Last Yarn’s three fashion revolutionary acts:

1. Education: Every morning, make it your goal to read one article related to fashion and the environment. @sourcingjournal is a fab way to get no-nonsense information, or for more fashion-related facts, check out @voguebusiness Business.

2. Reduce, Reuse, Recycle: Try to consciously consume as much as possible by restraining from buying unnecessary items and only buying second-hand when required.

3. Get Involved: Participating in environmental events such as @_colechi #YKWU is a great way to express your views, meet friends and learn from others.

How are you a fashion revolutionary? Leave a comment below. 👇

We had the pleasure of visiting Charles Gray London today to help set them up as vendors on the website. LOVED their supply of furs, tweeds and fake leathers.
NOW available for sale is an amazing orange faux fur (super soft) as well as a beautiful forest green or yellow tweed (made in Italy)! Check out their selection on our website. Link in bio. OR if you’re a designer and would like help becoming a vendor, please get in touch @hello@lastyarn.com #LastYarn #CharlesGrayLondon #FashionForward
