Avoiding fast fashion and opting for more sustainable brands is a great way to cut back on your carbon emissions. Every 1 kg of clothing created emits 3.75kg of CO2 during production and shipping. On top of that, a large percentage of clothing that is never sold will end up in landfills, which contributes further to carbon emissions.

The average UK family household will buy 64 kg of new clothing per year, which adds up to around 240 kg of CO2 emissions.

By choosing to buy half of your clothes at charity shops, you can cut your carbon emissions by as much as 120 kg per year.
