Finding the perfect outfit for your graduation ceremony can be a stressful time, but it is important to make sure that the way we shop is eco-friendly

Avoid Fast Fashion…

Although it may be tempting, it is important that stores that sell ‘fast fashion’ are avoided. The increase sales of ‘fast fashion’ is becoming a major concern to both the clothing industry and the environment. The material in which these clothes are made from are often cheap in order to keep up with the demand, and encourage a ‘throw away’ mentality in consumers.

Shopping online…

There are many eco-friendly clothing brands that are available online. By purchasing from these companies, you are ensuring that the material your clothes are made from are sourced sustainably and a high quality.

Companies such as Moss Bros and Thought Clothing offer sustainable formal wear which would make the perfect outfit for your graduation.

Get thrifty…

Lincoln has a vast range of second-hand and vintage shops which often hold secret treasures when it comes to eco-conscious clothes shopping. Rock Retro and Yak offer a wide range of styles in clothing, all of which are second-hand.

When it comes to second-hand shopping, charity shops are always a cheaper alternative, as well as being an extremely eco conscious way to shop for your graduation.

Get Sewing…

An even cheaper way to ‘shop’ eco consciously would be to revamp a piece of clothing that you already have. Or even make your own clothes! This will definitely require a lot of time and skill, however, it would make the outfit you where to graduation unique and personal.
