The book is broken down into 5 major parts of becoming sustainable: The Knowledge, Reassess Your Wardrobe, Shopping Habits, Maintenance, and Repair. These 5 sections offer the reader wisdom on each facet of becoming more sustainable.
Knowledge is an overload of sustainable information. From fabrics to dyes to the life cycle of a t-shirt. This section propels the reader forward with the correct information that most don't understand before embarking on a new way of looking at their clothes. Reassess Your Wardrobe and Shopping Habits further empowers the reader to make the right decision when looking at their closet and while shopping.
This book discusses complex topics in a simplistic way that doesn't intimidate, nor condemn its reader
Sustainable Wardrobe ends with 2 sections that plenty seem to miss when talking about sustainable fashion; Maintenance and Repair. Shopping is this most straightforward part to change when it comes to becoming more sustainable, but maintaining the clothes is something that can be a little more challenging. Sustainable Wardrobe leaves the reader with all the correct, and sometimes blunt, information to be able to change their shopping ways.
Sustainable Wardrobe: Practical advice and projects for Eco-friendly Fashion is the ideal first read for anyone looking to become more sustainable. This book discusses complex topics in a simplistic way that doesn't intimidate, nor condemn its reader. The goal of this book is transparent: to change the way the reader views clothing and it is successful in that with every page turn.
