Mindful Shopping Hierarchy for Better Purchases

Mindful Shopping Hierarchy for Better Purchases

To help myself shop better, I have a mindful shopping hierarchy:

General Preference

  1. Secondhand (in most of my outfits)
  2. Ethical/sustainable brands or collections
  3. Socially responsible brands (b-corps, “giving back” models, etc.)
  4. Well-made items that can be used for years, even decades
  5. Anything that doesn’t meet the first 4 criteria, try to minimize buying them

Material Preference

  1. Biodegradable/natural/semi-natural fabrics: cotton, linen, silk, wool, Tencel®, Modal®, etc.
  2. Recycled fabrics, synthetic or not
  3. Non-biodegradable/synthetic fabrics: polyester, nylon, polyamide, etc.

“Don’t buy much but make sure that what you buy is good.”

― Christian Dior

Having a mindful shopping hierarchy as a guide helps me to make better decisions. And if everyone shops more mindfully for their fashion, we can together reduce waste and protect our future.
