Conscious consumers throw away less
Choosing sustainable clothing changes the way consumers respond to fashion and marketing.
Conscious and sustainable buying means that less is thrown away.
Because appreciation for something that was made with human hands and love also ensures longer enjoyment of the article.
For example, environmentally friendly fabrics often last for years longer.
They are therefore less likely to be thrown away, resulting in a smaller waste mountain.
Environmentally friendly with a sustainable scarf
We are happy that we can contribute.
Weaving is a tradition in Thailand that can still be found in rural areas.
The old techniques of dyeing and weaving are passed on from mother to daughter.
For example, almost all our scarves are colored with paint that comes directly from nature and are woven by hand.
By buying a sustainable scarf from TheHappyScarf, you ensure that this craft continues to exist.
You also take care of the weaver who can use the extra income.
