How to Care for your Clothes so they Last

Clothing care is often overlooked as an important part of a sustainable wardrobe.

This video was created for the Project 333 blog. Read the accompanying post here.

After reading about people not washing their jeans for 6 months to year (even 15 months!), I decided to do my own little experiment. I ended up not washing a new pair jeans for 11 months (they were part of 3 capsules, so I wore them pretty regularly for a good 9 months) and I was incredibly surprised at how not-gross it was. This long without washing is definitely a bit extreme, but we often don’t need to wash our clothes as much as we think.
