The UK based Waste and Resources Action Programme (WRAP) recently released a report, Valuing Our Clothes: The Cost of UK Fashion.  Among the key findings in the report: UK residents have improved their clothing  care habits extending the life of their items. Here in the US, we need to do better. Have you tried a simple step like washing in cold water ? Not only do lower temperatures keep your garments from fading, you’ll also lower your utility bills. Click on the link to read more about the report. And let me know what resources you think your local government could provide to help residents place a higher value on caring for their clothes.
