How to be more eco-aware

RE_STYLD sustainable

try sustainable clothing

Check out our RE_STYLD collection that has just dropped for the eco-aware. Discover t-shirts, denim, sweatshirts, and more to reduce waste and feel secure that your items will last the test of time.

wash your clothes on lower temps

The simple act of turning the heat down on your washing machine cuts CO2 emissions and ultimately, helps to save the planet. Try leaving your washed clothes in the garden to try rather than chucking them in the dryer.

meat free mondays

Why not give meat free Mondays a go? If you feel like you cant give up meat completely, but you wanna reduce your intake, this makes perfect sense.

recycling and reuse

Remember to ALWAYS recycle and reuse what you can. It’s such a simple way of being eco-aware.

donate unwanted items

Bored of that crop top? Don’t throw it away, donate it. There will be someone out there who will LOVE it. Pick a charity shop you feel passionate about or sell it on apps like Depop or Vinted.

switch to sustainable makeup

The makeup industry has a massive impact on sustainability. This is why when we launched Missguided Beauty, we knew it had to be amazing quality whilst being Vegan and Cruelty-Free. Switch out some of your staples for these fan favourites below.

grow your own produce

Who doesn’t dream of growing their own produce and living off the land? It’s the absolute dream and not as hard as people make it out to be. All you need is seeds, time and patience. Not only will this improve your physical and mental health, but you will also be doing mother nature a solid.

save energy

Remember to always turn your lights off when you leave a room, use LED lighting and make sure everything is turned off before bed (including WIFI). This will have a major impact on your sustainability.

try refil shops

Produce refill shops are becoming wildly popular. Once you have a set of mason jars, you’re good to go. Simply refill the jar every time you run out. Think about how much plastic packaging you would save over your lifetime.

give cycling a go

Ditch the car sometimes and get on your bike. If you are into fitness, this sustainability idea will be great for you. If you aren’t feeling bike gang, why not hop on the bus to take part in a rideshare?
