Garment Care

 

The single most important thing you can do to lessen your clothes’ footprint is to use them for longer. Up to 25% of a garment’s environmental footprint happens after we buy it (source: wrap.org). That means the way we care for our clothes actually has a big impact on our planet.  

The best cared for garments–those that are passed on for generations – are the ultimate form of fashion luxury, if you ask us.   

 

Here are some easy tips:

 

  • Wash less, air dry more.

  • Spot-clean stains. 

  • Don’t wash denim too often. Try refreshing hacks instead, like airing them or putting them into the freezer. 

  • If you need to wash your denim, wash inside out.  

  • Wash on lower temperatures to save energy and don’t use too much detergent. 

  • Avoid dry cleaning and tumble drying when you can.  

  • Remember to zip up your garments before washing to avoid damage. 

  • Use washing bags to protect your garments.  

  • Use microfiber wash bags to protect synthetic garments and reduce the amount of microfibers in oceans and rivers. 

  • Once you’re done with a garment, recycle it. Give it to a friend or a charity, resell it or leave it at a Weekday store and we will recycle it for you… and give you 10% off your next purchase.
