Summer is the season for enjoying the sun, sand, and sea. But it’s also a time when many people start to think about updating their wardrobes for the warmer weather. As a sustainable and ethical fashion brand, TET.Responsible Wear believes that it’s important to consider the impact of our clothing choices on the environment and the people who make them. So, let’s talk about how to create a sustainable and ethical summer wardrobe, starting with your swimwear.
Choose sustainable materials
When shopping for swimwear, look for brands that use sustainable materials such as recycled nylon, organic cotton, or Tencel. These materials have a lower impact on the environment compared to conventional materials like virgin polyester or conventional cotton. At TET.Responsible Wear, we use exactly those materials to create our sustainable swimwear.
Support ethical production
Make sure to support brands that prioritize ethical production practices. This means that the people who make your clothes are treated fairly and work in safe conditions. Look for certifications such as B Corp Certification or GOTS (Global Organic Textile Standard) to ensure that the brand is committed to ethical production. At TET.Responsible Wear, we prioritize transparency in our supply chain and have partnerships with small local factories who share our values.
Opt for timeless designs
Instead of following fast fashion trends that change every season, invest in timeless designs that you can wear for years to come. This reduces the need to constantly buy new clothes and reduces your overall environmental footprint. Classic cuts and colors are always in style and can be mixed and matched with other pieces in your wardrobe. TET.Responsible Wear’s sustainable swimwear is designed with both style and longevity in mind. Furthermore all our swimwear can be mixed and matched throughout all collections.
Take care of your clothes
Proper care can extend the life of your clothes, reducing the need to replace them as often. Follow care instructions on the labels and avoid using harsh detergents or bleach. Hand washing your swimwear with gentle soap and air-drying it can help to maintain its quality and color.
Give back to the planet
Consider supporting organizations that work to protect the oceans and the environment. You can also participate in beach cleanups or donate to organizations that work to reduce plastic pollution in the oceans. TET. regularly organized beach clean-ups around Canggu, Bali.
By making sustainable and ethical choices with your summer wardrobe, starting with your swimwear, you can make a positive impact on the environment and support brands that align with your values. At the end of the day, building a sustainable summer wardrobe is all about making conscious choices that benefit both the environment and the people who make our clothes. Let’s embrace sustainable and ethical fashion this summer and make a positive impact on the world around us.
