4 Reasons to Take the 15x30 Challenge.
We partnered with Arc’s Value Village in support of Fashion Revolution Week!
Fashion Revolution Week (https://www.fashionrevolution.org) is an international movement that encourages millions of people to ask brands #whomademyclothes and demand greater transparency in the fashion supply chain.
This year, we partnered with a local organization, Arc's Value Village, and asked real customers to take part in the 15x30 Micro-Wardrobe Challenge.
The 15x30 Micro-Wardrobe Challenge aims to reduce our dependence on fast-fashion, by showing how to create a simple and versatile wardrobe using only 15 clothing items (including shoes!!!) for 30 days.
By reducing our dependence on fast-fashion and learning how to buy quality over quantity we not only make ourselves happier, but make our environment healthier too.
Here’s 4 reasons to try the 15x30 Challenge.
REDUCE STRESS CAUSED BY CLUTTER.
Capsule wardrobes help reduce the number of micro-decisions we have to make. This leaves us with more mental energy to be present for the people and activities we love.
SAVE MONEY AND TIME.
American’s consume 400% more clothing than we did 20 years ago. When you focus on buying quality, instead of quantity, you’ll have a versatile wardrobe that lasts and save an enormous amount of time and money.
By shopping at Arc’s Value Village - or even your own closet! - you’ll get more value for every dollar you spend. The average cost of a 15x30 Wardrobe was less than $100.
GO ON MORE ADVENTURES.
Research shows experience - not stuff - is what leads to a happier and more satisfying life. Capsule wardrobes help you to focus on creating more moments, instead of collecting more mementos.
With so many unique options to choose from, Arc’s Value Village allows you to create a versatile wardrobe that embraces your personal style and will help you feel confident for any adventure — big or small.
PROTECT OUR PLANET.
Fast-fashion is the second most polluting industry on the planet. As consumers, we have the ability to create real change by the choices we make on a daily basis - starting with our wardrobe.
By shopping at Arc’s Value Village you’ll find high quality items to create your own 15x30 wardrobe and reduce the impact fast-fashion has on the environment. (Did you know that you can even by a pair of high-quality jeans for under $2?) You’ll also support your community by providing funding for The Arc Minnesota’s programs —helping adults and children with disabilities since 1982.
