Wear Green

Your dress is a reflection of your personality and you can use your style statement to convey your concern for the environment. You need to think green throughout your dress’s life-cycle – right from buying the right organic fabric, maintaining it sustainably and discarding it responsibly. The fibre of eco friendly clothing may be plant-based, animal-based, regenerative or recycled synthetic in nature.

The best option is therefore to choose clothes certified as eco-friendly by competent authorities.
