A vintage store in Leeds says “more people are turning to vintage fashion”
The fashion industry produces 10% of all carbon emissions which is making people look at the alternatives.
Blue Rinse in Leeds is one store prioritising vintage clothing as a sustainable alternative to high street fashion.
Kaitlyn Bullen, Blue Rinse Brand Manager said: “Our customers always talk about their desire to be more sustainable and ethical”.
As well as generally being cheaper, ‘vintage fashion’ is also a new way of wearing old clothes.
“Everyone is really into our recycle range and they really like that we’re taking clothes that would end up in a landfill and making something new out of them.”
