Getting Into Eco-friendly Fashion with Swishing!
Everyone is talking about the newest eco friendly craze swishing. What is it? Swishing is the swapping of clothes, shoes or accessories with your girlfriends or acquaintances. Swishing parties are becoming more and more popular because girls love to shop and save money at the same time. Not only is this a great way to switch up your wardrobe and save money doing it, but it is also positive for the environment. Most people don't realise how much effect the clothing industry has on the environment. Just the production of a simple T shirt requires about 1 kilogram of pesticides!
Swishing is an eco friendly approach to making the most out of your garments and getting more for a discounted price. Everyone gets bored of their old clothes, but this time swap them instead of going out and purchasing more. Not only will you be doing your part to save the environment but your wardrobe will be benefiting immensely! Find out more about Swishing events with some of these great sites.
