Clothing is an important part of our everyday life and plays an important role in creating our personal style and identity. However, it is also important that we realize that the production of clothing has a huge impact on our environment.
The textile industry is one of the most polluting industries and one of the largest contributors to CO2 emissions and water pollution.
One way we can do our part to protect the environment is to repair our clothes instead of constantly buying new clothes. Here are some reasons why it's worth repairing our clothes:
1. Save money: Repairing is usually cheaper than buying new. So it's worth investing in a few small repairs instead of buying new clothes again and again.
2 . Longer lifespan: When we repair our clothes, we can extend their lifespan. This means we have to buy less new clothing, which in turn reduces our carbon footprint.
3. Personal Style: By repairing our clothes, we can also adapt them to our personal style. For example, we can spruce up an old pair of jeans with mending or patches or upgrade an old dress with new buttons.
4. Promote sustainability: Repairing promotes sustainability because we use fewer new resources and reduce our waste. This is particularly important as the textile industry is one of the largest sources of waste.
There are different ways we can repair our clothes. For example, we can buy a sewing machine and repair our clothes ourselves, or we can have them repaired by a professional tailor or seamstress. There are also many community workshops where we can get our clothes repaired. You can now also have your favorite hoodie repaired by us.
Life can sometimes be unpredictable and it can happen that your favorite WE•TRST hoodie gets damaged during everyday or daring actions. But don't worry, because with our RECOVER repair service we'll get it back in shape (if possible).
At WE•TRST we are committed to a sustainable wardrobe and want you to be able to wear your clothes for as long as possible. That's why we offer this service to our customers to ensure that your favorite hoodie looks like new again and you can continue to wear it with pride. Please contact us for further information about the WE•TRST repair service.
