About Say No To New
I have launched this campaign to encourage people to search for alternative ways to shop for 'new' clothes. Nowadays there are so many options to support the slow fashion movement and achieve a sustainable wardrobe!
Thrifting, renting and upcycling are all easy ways to not only shop more eco-friendly but also save yourself a lot of money. Often charity stores or online preloved apps and sites have thousands of hidden gems that would make fabulous additions to your closet.
Slow fashion doesn't just mean preloved or upcycled. You can still support the movement by searching for organic pieces or garments made from recycled fabric as these have a much lower carbon footprint.
How it Works
Each month, there will be an asset to download from the ecolexi.com/saynotonewproject page here at ecolexi.com where all you'll need to do is add a photograph of yourself in a slow fashion outfit. You can share where you got your outfit from in your description to help others learn about shopping sustainably!
Don't forget to tag @eco.lexi and @saynotonewproject and use the #saynotonewproject hashtag to have your pledge shared on the official Instagram page.
Slow Fashion Looks
I'll be sharing my own slow fashion looks each week on Instagram with information on where I found each piece and the cost of each outfit. I'll also be sharing everyone else's looks and doing an 'Outfit of the Week' segment. You'll also be able to find all of the looks at ecolexi.com/saynotonewproject
Slow Fashion Shoutout
Each month there will be slow fashion shoutouts over on Instagram where we'll recommend apps and brands that exercise sustainable practises and are worth supporting!
Examples of Slow Fashion Brands
Just B Positive - justbpositiveclothing.com
Vitamin B Clothing - vitaminbee.co.uk

Of course I will be taking part in the campaign each month for the foreseeable future but will still be making my pledge.
I pledge to support The Slow Fashion Movement for the month of June by boycotting fast fashion companies and brands. If I add to my wardrobe it will be sustainably through; preloved, rented, upcycled or organic options.
Join The Movement
To join this campaign all you need to do is download the asset for the month you're taking part and add a photo of yourself in a thrifted/preloved/borrowed/rented/upcycled/organic/recycled outfit.
Let everyone know where you sourced your outfit from in your description and don't forget to tag @eco.lexi and @saynotonewproject in your posts and use the #saynotonewproject hashtag.
Alternatively you can reach out to me on Instagram to get involved at @eco.lexi.
