Learn About Mindful Fashion
At Crescent, we’ve been striving towards a more mindful approach to fashion since our inception. From manufacturing small batches to reduce textile waste to using recycled packaging materials, we’ve been taking steps towards becoming greener. While there are always improvements we can make on our end, you can also join in the eco-friendly fashion movement when you make better choices about what and where you shop.

1. Shop at Committed Stores
A way you can take a step towards helping our environment is by shopping with stores that are committed to making a difference. Many businesses in the fashion industry want to stop the fast fashion cycle that’s destroying our planet, so they’re making an effort to find ways to be more environmentally friendly. Check out their stories to find out what efforts they are making. Are they donating a portion of their profits to charities that focus on climate change? Do they utilize recycled materials in their designs? Are they offsetting carbon emissions in their manufacturing spaces? Even if they’re not completely green, shopping with any business that’s making an effort towards sustainability is a step in the right direction.
2. Consciously Choose Clothing That Lasts
The key to eco-friendly fashion is to reduce waste. Literal tons of clothing are thrown out each year by businesses who overstocked or people who just want the freshest, trendiest pieces. There are two things to look for if you want to shop mindful. Find high-quality clothing that’s durable enough to last you for years and explore timeless styles that will fit in no matter what current trend is taking over.
3. Build a Capsule Wardrobe
If you’ve decided that it’s time to take responsibility for your own carbon footprint, then building a capsule wardrobe with high-quality clothing is a wonderful way to do your part. Opting for eco-friendly fashion doesn’t mean you have to transition your whole closet at once! Over time, pick up clothing pieces that are made of high-quality materials and will stand the test of time. Choose pieces that can be mixed and matched with other items in your wardrobe and opt for colors that are going to complement the other closet staples that you own. Before you know it, you’ll have a complete wardrobe that will result in endless outfit opportunities.
