At Retroverse Vintage we feel strongly about the importance of sustainable and ethical consumerism. The fashion industry alone makes up 10% of humanity’s carbon emission and 85% of all textiles go to the dump each year. Buying vintage helps to stop this waste and by giving pieces a second life we could have a profound and lasting impact on helping the planet.
With one pair of jeans taking 2000 gallons to make, the fashion industry is also one of the largest consumers of water in the world. By shopping vintage we can also help to conserve immense volumes of much needed resources.
