8 Reasons to Rethink Fast Fashion

Love this point!

5. Fast fashion can wind up costing you more than “real” clothes.

If you’re on a budget and looking for ways to save money on clothes, one way to evaluate the price of an item is to calculate the cost per wear for each item.

Celebrate Organic September With Outsider

Organic September is the UK’s biggest celebration of all things organic. It’s an initiative created by the Soil Association with the goal to make one simple point: if we all make small changes as consumers, we can create a big difference to our world. 

This month is a time to remind ourselves that through our shopping habits we have the power to influence change.  We are all encouraged, in at least one area of our lives, to spend money on an organic alternative. As Rob Sexton, Chief Executive of Soil Association Certification says: “If everyone makes a small change like switching to organic milk or choosing an organic moisturiser we can make a huge difference to our planet. Organic farms support 50% more wildlife, with 30% more species - that’s more birds, bees, butterflies, beetles, bats and wildflowers.

A small change can make a surprisingly large difference - the average family eats enough bread in a year that if just 12 families make the small change to swap their bread to organic, an area of organic land a quarter of the size of the Wembley Stadium football pitch would be a haven for wildlife.”

To help celebrate Organic September we have created an Organic Edit within our online boutique and are offering 15% off all our organic cotton styles.  Just enter the code ORGANIC at the checkout.

The Edit includes styles made ethically from 100% organic cotton, certified by the Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS). The whole supply chain, from field through manufacture to final fabric, is fully certified. 

The Soil Association explains the reasons why organic textiles are kinder and cleaner:

  • Organic fibres are grown without the use of harmful pesticides or genetically modified organisms and so they promote a healthier farm and environment
  • Harmful manufacturing chemicals in organic textile production are forbidden, so it’s better for local wildlife, animals and people
  • Social conditions are better in organic textile factories - organic cotton production can help farmers find a way out of poverty
  • Animal welfare is at the heart of organic systems
  • Organic textiles don’t contain allergenic, carcinogenic or toxic chemicals

We hope this will inspire more people to choose organic where possible, and when you do you can enter the following competition… 

The Soil Association have teamed up with Organic September sponsors Good Energy to offer one lucky shopper a year’s free supply of electricity. To be in with a chance of winning you simply need to visit www.soilassociation.org/win and tell them the organic product you bought this September. No proof of purchase is necessary although, as ever, terms and conditions apply – see here for full details.

Enjoy!
