Fast Fashion has changed the way consumers think of clothing. Disposable, mass-produced, and widely distributed, fast fashion has become the default for what the world thinks of when it comes to dressing themselves. Clothing is one of the few items we continuously use, no matter what. However, the consumer consciousness has led us to believe we need to keep up with the current trends in order to feel some sense of satisfaction when in the case of clothing, less is more. 10% of fast fashion produced for retailers will actually sell, leaving the remaining 90% to be thrown out in landfills or burned. That number is startlingly high, especially considering the amount of resources needed for fast fashion.
American Recycled Clothing offers a sustainable clothing solution. We have established relationships with textile clothing mills to recycle their unwanted inventory and repurpose it to fit the trends of today. From jeans to flannel, band tees or pullovers, don’t work off the notion that what was once popular once will never be that again. Re-working articles for your own unique style and purpose is what we’re here to help with.
