How to Care for Your Adaptive Clothing: Sustainability Tips on World Environment Day

June 5th marks World Environment Day, a day dedicated to raising awareness about environmental issues and encouraging people to take action to protect our planet. As a brand that focuses on creating adaptive clothing for people in recovery, sustainability is a top priority for Recovawear.

In this blog post, we'll be sharing eco tips on how to reduce the impact of our clothing choices on the environment. We'll also be talking about our partnership with AirRobe, a circular fashion movement that allows you to repurpose your pre-loved recovawear pieces and reduce waste.

Caring For Adaptive Clothing

According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), almost 90% of the energy consumed while washing clothes goes toward heating the water. By switching to cold water, you can save energy, reduce your carbon footprint, and prolong the lifespan of your clothing. Always read and follow the care instructions of clothes, especially if they use special materials.

Recovawear is dedicated to using eco-friendly fabrics that have a lower environmental impact. We use sustainable materials like organic cotton and bamboo, which use less water and energy than traditional fabrics. Additionally, all of our packaging is made from recycled materials, which reduces waste and has a smaller carbon footprint.

Repurpose with AirRobe

It's important to dispose of your clothes properly. Donating to charities or thrift stores is a great way to give your clothes a second life and keep them out of landfills. AirRobe also offers a solution for reselling or renting your preloved fashion pieces, which offsets carbon emissions, water usage, and textile waste. 

AirRobe is a marketplace supporting the circular fashion movement that allows you to repurpose your pre-loved clothing items. This partnership gives our customers the opportunity to extend the life of their adaptive clothing and reduce waste. All you have to do is sell or rent your pre-loved Recovawear pieces with AirRobe, and you'll be offsetting C02 emissions, reducing textile waste, and saving water. As individuals, one of the most significant ways we can take action is by making sustainable choices, including in fashion. 

Play Your Part In Sustainable Fashion

As we celebrate World Environment Day, it's important to remember that sustainability is a collective effort. By following these tips, we can all play a part in creating a more sustainable fashion industry and protecting our planet for future generations. 

Recovawear is committed to reducing our environmental impact and creating clothing that's both functional and eco-friendly. And you too can do the same by implementing small changes in your daily life.  Let's all work towards a more sustainable and cleaner future.
