How to shop for Sustainable Fashion in Canberra

A lot of us want to shop in a more conscious way. But it can be hard to know where to start, especially if you haven’t thought about the sustainability credentials of what you wear before. There are lots of ways you can become a more conscious consumer (in fact, we have written a whole separate article about it).

You can shop from an ethical and sustainable label, shop pre-loved pieces rather than buying brand new, swap clothes with a friend or rent something special for the weekend. Whatever your budget, we have an option for you. Here is our guide on how to shop for sustainable fashion in Canberra. If you know of any other ethical, sustainable or conscious ways to shop here in the capital city, we want to know!
