The best sustainable Christmas sweaters for UK shoppers
While fancy knits bring a lot of joy to people every year (especially when presenting a great festive pun), the majority of Christmas sweaters don’t do much for the environment. As the studies published in the Guardian As has been shown, most street foods contain plastic microfibers, and a quarter of those purchased before December 25 may end up in the trash in January.
As shoppers continue to learn about the devastating effects of fast, throw-away fashion on the environment, there’s never been a better time to ensure your festive knitwear causes as little damage to the planet as possible. With that in mind, I’ve found some great places to shop for sustainable Christmas sweaters this year. In the list below, you’ll find a few ethical stores that you can browse this winter as well as places to pick up second-hand Christmas knitwear.
The most important thing to remember is that once you find the right Christmas sweater for you, be sure to take care of it so that it can be reused for many festive celebrations to come.
