What are Good Quality Clothes?
 
06:30
Buying high quality clothing is important, especially if you have a capsule wardrobe or are trying to build a more sustainable wardrobe. These are some tips and signs to help you find good quality and well made garments. Videos mentioned Common Fabrics Pros & Cons: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9QmTnHNb8ro Clothing Care: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wt9yB7Xrcnc More info: how to assess the quality of garments: a beginner’s guide {part i} http://into-mind.com/2014/05/01/how-to-assess-the-quality-of-garments-a-beginners-guide-part-i/ **Please note that these signs and tips are generalizations. One or two things does not necessarily mean that the garment is good quality. Also even if the garment is well made with high quality finishings it could still possibly be made from a poor quality fabric, which is why assessing the fabric is most important. The best thing to do is feel the clothes, look at the inside and trust your instincts! ;) Please share any other tips you have!

Winter Capsule Wardrobe | Project 333

The pieces I chose for my winter capsule wardrobe and some outfits to show the capsule's versatility. For this season I wanted a good mix of casual and work outfits and layering options. List of items in my capsule: http://mygreencloset.com/2017/winter-capsule-wardrobe-17/ I did not include my winter coat, also I'm looking for a pair of trousers and if I find the right ones I'll swap them out for one of the jeans. Since I wear a lot more layers in winter, this capsule is the largest compared to the other seasons. What is Project 333? It's a capsule wardrobe challenge where you wear 33 items for 3 months.

Start your Ethical Wardrobe Without Spending a Cent
 
03:14
You can begin your conscious closet journey right now, you don't have to buy anything! The sustainable and #ethicalfashion movement talks a lot about shopping - what to buy and where to find better products, but choosing NOT to buy something is equally, if not more important. We need to slow down the insane rate we're consuming and disposing of clothes. Did you know the average person in the US throws away (yes, straight to the landfill) about 70 pounds of textiles every year??

The 4 areas I consider to be the foundation of an eco-friendly wardrobe. They are: Wear - make sure you'll actually wear and get a lots of use from new clothes, commit to at least 30 wears!

Check out my capsule wardrobes here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k7Qq0pGGOYY&list=PLab1HN1VQq5P_8eR2kWcw0KVCr-BHreSc Quality - Buy clothes that will last, and definitely avoid anything that looks likely to fall apart or wear out after a few washes. How to identify good quality clothes: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gjWiUI7MdbQ&t Care - care for your clothes so they last and have a lower impact.

5 Eco Lifestyle Essentials ♻️
 
03:13
5 products which help reduce your daily waste and environmental impact! Shopping bags - you can often find them given away for free, but I'd also recommend getting a heavy-duty one for grocery shopping. Water bottle - way too much plastic waste comes from bottled water, save money and plastic by bringing your own bottle. My glass one is from Soul Bottles https://www.soulbottles.de/en * Reusable coffee cup - if you ever get coffee or tea to-go you should bring your own mug! Mine is a bamboo Ecoffee cup from Pukka Herbs https://shop.pukkaherbs.com/gifts/pukka-cups.html * but if you're looking for an insulated cup, a lot of people seem to like Keep Cup https://eu.keepcup.com Jars - use these to buy bulk food, bring lunches or snacks in, as take-away conatiners, or to replace any other plastic containers. You can buy jars but it's easiest and cheapest to use the ones you get at grocery stores. Cloth towels/napkins/cleaning rags - save paper towels, napkins and synthetic cleaning cloths. It's also cheaper than buying disposable products and you can even re-purpose worn out garments into cleaning rags. What else do you think is a eco-friendly must-have? Thanks for watching!

Why Sustainable Products Are Made From Bamboo
 
03:00
This video is kindly sponsored by One Happy Leaf, check out their bamboo jewellery! https://www.onehappyleaf.com/ Bamboo is a very eco friendly material because it grows so quickly, requires little water, no pesticides/herbicides/fungicides, and actually produces more oxygen than the same area of trees. It's also very versatile which makes it a good choice for a lot of products.

Why We LOVE Fast Fashion | Psychology of Shopping

Let's talk about what's going on in our brains while we're shopping and why it's difficult to change shopping habits. As with anything related to our brains, it's very complex and complicated and a lot is unknown.

What Does a Minimalist Look Like?
 
03:17
My thoughts on a minimalist aesthetic vs a minimalist lifestyle. I created this video as a guest contributor for the Project 333 blog, see the post here: http://theproject333.com/minimalist/ There seems to be a lot of stereotypes and assumptions around minimalism. I've been thinking about this a lot and would love to here your thoughts and opinions on the topic! What does minimalism look like for you? Do you have a minimalist style? How do you think the ideas of 'functional minimalism' and 'visual minimalism' are related or different? There is also a great post on Into Mind about this topic: http://into-mind.com/2013/08/11/simple-living-vs-calvin-klein-defining-the-minimalist-approach/ Thanks for watching!

Pros & Cons of Common Fabrics | Fibres & Fabrics Part 1
 
11:27
Hope you're ready for a lot of information! In this video I go through everyday and environmental pros and cons of materials you likely own or will see in stores. Read those labels! ;) Each fibre has different benefits and a different environmental impact. There definitely are more sustainable fabrics than others, but it's also good to choose fabrics that fit the intended purpose of the garment. For example, a summer top should be breathable, athletic wear durable, a rain coat water-resistant etc. and also choose materials that fit your lifestyle. Sorry this video is so long, hopefully it's not boring. To make it easier these are the fabrics I talk about with timecodes to skip to the ones you're interested in: 0:35 Cotton 1:38 Linen 2:28 Hemp 3:21 Polyester 4:11 Wool 5:16 Acrylic 5:51 Silk 6:36 Nylon 7:20 Spandex/Elastane/Lycra 7:57 Rayon 8:43 Bamboo 9:37 Lyocell/Tencel I'm sure there are things I missed, so please add any pros or cons in the comments.
