Sustainability

Sustainability underpins everything we do. At a time where the fashion industry is responsible for 10% of the worlds carbon emissions, where one truck of textiles is sent to landfill or destroyed every second and where climate change is a real threat to the future of our civilisation, we are faced with the need to change the way we consume. 

We believe in buying less, buying better and making it last. It's our mission to make shopping second hand a luxury experience to encourage a slower and more mindful approach to style. We believe that shopping second hand is one of the most sustainable ways to shop because it utilises what already exists and minimises environmental impact.

The longer we can extend the life of a garment the less it harms the environment. Extending the life of a garment by just nine months reduces it's carbon footprint by 20-30%. We want the pieces you purchase from The Modern Style to form part of your wardrobe for years to come. For tips on how to ensure your pieces last a lifetime check out our Product Care page.

Our postal boxes, note cards, tissue paper and stickers are made from 100% recycled material. Our box tape is 100% biodegradable. Our thank you notes and business cards are made from 100% recycled t-shirt offcuts that normally get thrown away. All recycled packaging can be recycled again upto seven times.

As a brand we are always looking for ways to become even more sustainable. In 2021 we are introducing a carbon free delivery option via bike courier in London.
