Emma Watson: Check the carbon impact of your closet

BANG! NEWS – Emma Watson wants people to monitor the “carbon impact” of their closets.

The Little Women star has partnered with online thrift store thredUp to promote their Fashion Footprint Calculator, which helps users see for themselves how their fashion habits are impacting the environment.

In an Instagram post, Emma shared: “Our closets impact the planet and climate more than you might realise, which is why I am proud to partner with @thredUP to launch their new Fashion Footprint Calculator.

“They created an easy to use tool, and I’m so excited to help people discover the carbon impact of their wardrobes, and steps you can take to lighten your fashion footprint.”

Emma went on to explain how the footprint calculator works, and listed some simple ways people can make changes to the way they shop which can help save the environment.

She added, “They’ll tell you what your fashion footprint is equivalent to a number of flights, exactly how many pounds of CO2 it produces and how you fare compared to an average consumer. Small changes, such as thrifting instead of buying new, supporting sustainable brands, and air-drying your clothes, can make a HUGE difference.”
