In celebration of World Earth Day Lakeside Village have put together a sustainable fashion edit ready to purchase from selected stores.
So why does sustainable fashion matter?
Fashion production makes up 10% of humanity’s carbon emissions, dries up water sources, and pollutes rivers and streams. What’s more, 85% of all textiles go to the dump each year (UNECE, 2018), and washing some types of clothes sends significant amount of microplastics into the ocean.
How can I help?
By doing small things such as buying sustainable fashion, re-wearing clothes, washing clothes only when you need to and donating old clothes (we have a cash4clothes facility onsite), you are making a positive impact. Below are some sustainable Lakeside Village fashion picks.

Every Lyfcycle suit contains at least 45 recycled plastic bottles. You can trace the journey of every item in this collection yourself, just by scanning the QR code on the hangtag.
