The best way to reduce your footprint is to extend the life on your garments. This is why we have looked at ways to extend the life of our clothing by allowing each garment to grow with you through phases such as pregnancy and feeding.
Some other ways to extend the life is how you care for your products.
To reduce your water and extend the lifespan by spot or hand washing using eco-friendly detergent.
Should you need to machine wash, a cold machine wash is better than hot.

You can also hang your clothing in your shower to steam creases out.
