We love a new outfit but fast fashion isnt good for the planet.

Throwing away clothes when youve only worn them a few times is not good for the planet.

But Asda has a solution – they are making brand new clothes out of old ones.

The blouses and dresses are made with fabric created by recycling polyester clothing.

Their spring/summer range also includes cushions and throws made from recycled plastic bottles.

The supermarket brand has made a commitment to only use polyester made from recycled fabric by 2025, as well as only source sustainable viscose and sustainable cotton.

As well as offering recycled garments, the retailer wants to help customers understand more about how to reduce the environmental impact of what they wear.

They said they want to increase the visibility of how to care for garments to make them last longer, as well as increasing the awareness of how they can repurpose, reuse and recycle old clothing.

Any clothing that George cant recycle is donated to charities to be repurposed as they dont burn anything.
