Boohoo has created a Sustainable collection, and here’s why
The Fashion Industry grows each year exponentially, and Australia is the second largest contributor to this, with the average Australian buying over 27Kg of new textiles each year! However, the harsh effect of the Fashion Industry on the planet also continues to grow, and 23kg of these clothes end up in the landfill, of which 70% of materials are unable to breakdown.
To counteract this, Boohoo has created a Sustainable, Recycled Fashion collection titled ‘For the Future’, featuring a range of clothes made from Recycled polyester that has been taken directly from Landfills. Known for their on-trend outfits, Boohoo aimed to be able to not compromise on style, while also providing consumers with a full collection, made from 95% recycled material and 5% elastin, using environmentally friendly and non-toxic fabric dyes and ink and free from harmful chemicals.
As well as this, not only are they using sustainable fabrics, but they are manufacturing the collection in the UK to save on the number of air miles that would be clocked up making the garments elsewhere. The swing tags are made from 100% recycled paper also.
Here is a look at the sustainable collection, including some of our favourite pieces!
Featuring 34 pieces, the collection has been made to suit everyone with most pieces going up to a size 26 and featuring something for all body types. The dress picture above is one of our favourite print items from the collection, because of the fun, vibrant colours, perfect for a getaway somewhere hot like Bali to avoid Australia’s cold winter!
Next up is a staple piece that every wardrobe needs, a simple black tank top that can be dressed up by wearing some cute painted leather pants and heels, or dressed down with some jeans and sneakers.

Lastly, we had to include a two-piece set for you! This set is super cute and would look amazing on all body types. We think two pieces are a must have due to their versatility and the fact that you can mix and match these pieces with anything you like to make it your own.
The slinky fit & flare comes in Black, Pink, and Burnt Orange (which is currently sold out).
