Having a capsule wardrobe is a great way to be more organised as well as look good every day. The aim of a capsule wardrobe is to have a smaller amount of clothes, but clothes that go together well and are a higher quality like this Superdry menswear from EJ Menswear.

As well as being a great way to save time, having a capsule wardrobe is a really good way to save the planet. The rise of fast and cheap fashion has seen a huge amount of damage caused to the environment in recent years, at a time when the planet is under so much threat already.

There are many ways that fast fashion harms the environment. Due to the very nature of the clothes being cheap and easy to purchase, people are buying a lot more clothes and not keeping them for very long. Did you know that each second, the equivalent of a whole truck full of clothes is incinerated or dumped in landfill each second on the planet?

As well as this, the washing of the clothes that are made from cheap man-made materials means that the tiny fibres release bits of plastic into the water which then ends up making its way into the oceans. We have already seen a lot of damage caused to our oceans by plastic pollution, and this is something that urgently needs to stop.

So, as well as having a better life and bank balance from a capsule wardrobe, you would also be doing the planet a huge favour!
