With rising sea levels and heightened concerns surrounding global warming, more and more people are making a conscious effort to be more environmentally friendly. Of the vast majority of clothes which are thrown away, a whopping 70% of it ends up in landfill, and this can have lasting implications on the future of our planet.

Reuse and Recycle!

One way in which thousands are now reducing that number, whilst also ensuring that their old clothes are still fashionable is by “revamping” their old clothes. No matter what you have, you can find a way to make it into something completely unique. For example, a ripped pair of jeans can be patched up with an old shirt, or they can be completely deconstructed and used to make a whole new garment!

Machines and tools

With embroidery machines able to add flair to any item of clothing, dress patterns available at a reasonable price, and sewing machines also being very reasonably priced, many people are saving money by simply repairing their existing clothes, or using them to make something completely unique.

Whatever your skill level, and whatever you had in mind, there has never been a better time to clear out your wardrobe and get creative! Franklins Group offers a wide range of sewing machines at an affordable price, and they also provide classes and courses so you can improve whilst you learn.
