Here is a quick way to Go Green in your Family.
Buy neutral colored clothing (for you and your kids!). Including neutral colored clothing your wardrobe can have many advantages both financially and environmentally.
Neural colored clothing can be reused or resold more easily than bright, vibrant colored clothing.
Neutral clothing also matches and pairs with other clothing more easily. It makes it simpler to create a capsule wardrobe whereby you purchase fewer pieces of clothing and mix and match.
When your wardrobe is filled with bright colored or trendy pieces you tend to grow tired of it. Not being able to easily match pieces or coordinate your clothing creates challenges and as a result you buy more pieces of clothing. We see this often with children's clothes and parents that are unhappy about the clothing choices their children make.
In North American, we send over 12 millions tons of textiles to landfill every year. Do your part by choosing neutral and timeless pieces for you and your family!
To be clear we are not talking about gender neutral in this post. We believe that all colors are gender neutral and that pink is not a girls color nor is blue a boys colors. Colors are just that - colors! We are talking about neutral colors that will pair more easily with other pieces of clothing.
Creams, beiges, browns, blacks, greys, navy, reds and greens. Those colors tend to be the most neutral. Jeans fit into the neutral category as well since they pair with almost any color. Choosing these colors will help you create a wardrobe that will stand the test of time and can be reused season after season and year after year - which is better for your wallet and our planet!
If you are looking for color, why not spruce up your wardrobe or your child's wardrobe with bright colored accessories - hats, scarves, necklaces, shoes.
Do you purchase neutral colored clothing for you and your kids? Do you see the benefits?
