Slow Fashion

There is no beauty in the finest cloth if it makes hunger and unhappiness.

-Mahatma Ghandi

Guiding Principle: Reduce, Reuse, Responsible

Reduce

Most of us in Toronto have more clothes than we need. Try to buy less! Side effects include more money in your wallet and more space in your apartment.

Reuse

Friends are great. Friends have nice clothes. Friends also get bored of their nice clothes just like you do. Consider having a Clothing Swap with your friends every once in awhile.

When you’re done raiding your friends’ closets, there is no shortage of thrift stores in Toronto.

Responsible

Think globally. Act locally.

Made in Canada. Ethically sourced. Organic. Eco-friendly. Bamboo. If any of these words are on your clothing tag, you are shopping responsibly.
