1000 Flowers for the Planet - #490 Read Care Labels
Have you noticed that every piece of clothing you wear has a care label attached to it? They come with instructions for how best to look after that item of clothing. When you read and follow these care labels you look after your clothing in the best way possible, and this means your clothing will last longer. It’s so much better to ensure the longevity of clothes so that the resources used in making them in the first place are used to their fullest. It also means you need to buy fewer clothes, saving money and resources, and less clothing will go into landfill. It might seem to only make a small difference to the planet, but every bit counts – and remember the value of multiplication: if we all do it then the difference is multiplied by millions.
