Sustainability

Sustainability is not a trend, it’s our mindset here at Dogdays of Summer. Yes, we sell second hand clothing (fair fashion). But there is so much more to it than that. Read more on this page about our sustainability approach.

What is fair fashion?

You might have heard about organic cotton, vegan shoes and other sustainable products. But did you know that using second hand clothes is the most sustainable way of dressing?

You use something that already exists. That’s good for you, the people and the planet as you save a lot of CO2, water and energy. Did you know that just a single pair of jeans requires 10.000 litres of water? When buying vintage jeans you help us save our environment. Easy as that.

Why should I buy sustainable fashion?

Here are three reasons for choosing second hand clothes:

1. Second Hand clothing is sustainable

The textile industry is the second biggest polluter of our times. And there is more: textile waste increased 810% the last 50 years. We want to fight this waste by using existing clothes. That saves water and energy.

2. Second hand clothes are good for your skin

Second hand clothes were probably already washed several times. So most of the toxics are already gone which is why vintage clothing is so much better for your skin. Second hand is also the perfect choice for allergic people and babies.

3. Second hand clothes are durable.

No cheap fast fashion! Many pieces from the past are more durable due to the careful production process and high quality materials.
