This is my super soft yellow jumper made from cotton from H&M. So far H&M use 43% of sustainably sourced cotton, but they have created a new program to try and only use 100% sustainable cotton by 2020, that’s only 3 (almost 2) years away! The main problem is the amount of water consumed when creating fabrics from any material but especially from cotton, it can take more than 20,000 Liters of water to create ONE t-shirt! Because this is such an impact H&M are trying to only use recycled cotton, organic cotton and Better cotton. (A type of cotton that makes the production better for the people who grow it and better for the environment, I have tagged the link for more information here
) By using these types of cotton, it may not always reduce a large amount of water used but will get rid of the other harmful parts of the cotton production that are not sustainable. To even just wear one item every day that I know is earth loving, or trying to become earth loving makes me super happy! I can’t wait for the day when it’s so easy to buy everything that is environmentally positive and that my whole wardrobe only contains sustainable clothing.
What do you guys think of the fashion flatlays? I really enjoy creating pretty pictures and would love to do more, I hope you get some inspiration along the way and find some sustainable fashion that you love xx
