What's cost per wear? Here's the trick to shopping mindfully.
One of alder's core values = practicing mindful design. We want you to love + wear your #recreating pieces season after season and believe that creating long-lasting, versatile items is an important step in designing sustainable wardrobes (plus only using eco-friendly + low carbon materials).
A great way to evaluate investment into sustainable pieces is finding the cost per wear of any item of clothing you buy (since wearing items more often is a frequently overlooked factor in building a sustainable wardrobe).
HOW IT WORKS
Take the retail price of an item and divide it by the number of times you wear it in an average year.
Let's see it in action with our open-air pants:
💚 6 wears (once every two months) = $24.67
💚 12 wears (once a month) = $12.33
💚 26 wears (once every other week) = $5.69
💚 52 wears (once a week) = $2.85
💚 260 wears (five times a week) = $0.57
