The Conscious Closet : The Revolutionary Guide To Looking Good While Doing Good

By Elizabeth L Cline ()

With her landmark investigation Overdressed: The Shockingly High Cost of Cheap Fashion, Elizabeth Cline was the first to reveal fast fashion's hidden toll on garment workers, the environment, and even our own satisfaction with our clothes. The Conscious Closet shows exactly what we can do about it. Based on her personal experiences getting off the fast-fashion treadmill and figuring out a common-sense and affordable approach to conscious style, Elizabeth will share how to pare down your closet; swap, resell, or recycle what you don't love; better care for and repair what you do; and how to affordably buy, thrift, or rent the ethical wardrobe of your dreams. Whether your goal is to build an effortless capsule wardrobe, keep up with trends, buy quality, seek out ethical brands, or all of the above, this is the book for you. The Conscious Closet is not just a style guide. It is a manifesto and call to action to transform one of the most polluting industries on earth, fashion, into a force for good, on both a micro level-- our own closets--and macro level, by learning where and how our clothes are made, and how to connect to a global and impassioned community of stylish fashion revolutionaries for bigger systematic change. Clothing is one of the most personal expressions of who we are, and in The Conscious Closet, Elizabeth aims to help readers truly understand and love their clothes again--without sacrificing the environment or their morals in the process.
