Reorganise & Swap by Tomfoolery

 

“BREAK YOUR HABIT, NOT YOUR PLANET,

IT’S TIME TO CONQUER THAT WARDROBE.

HERE’S A MINI-RHYMING TIP,

TO SHOW SOME KINDNESS WITH YOUR CLOTHES.

STUDIES SAY WE RARELY, OR WILL NEVER WEAR,

40% OF WHAT WE OWN.

SHOVED TO THE BOTTOM, LOST, FORGOTTEN,

COLLECTING MOTHBALLS IN OUR HOMES.

WELL THEN, IT’S NO SURPRISE A REORGANISE,

CAN REVEAL SOME HIDDEN GEMS;

OR PIECES SWAPPED WITH FAMILY MEMBERS,

CAN LET THOSE GARMENTS LIVE AGAIN.

WE SHOULD DELIGHT WHEN THINGS ARE HANDED DOWN,

MAKE IT A NOBLE THING TO DO.

BECAUSE LOOK AROUND AT THIS, OUR GORGEOUS GLOBE,

WELL, WE’RE HANDING THAT DOWN TOO!”

Care & Repair by Tomfoolery

 

“BREAK YOUR HABIT NOT YOUR PLANET;

IN FACT, LET’S PUT THIS TO THE TEST.

HERE’S A MINI-RHYMING TIP,

TO BE MORE THOUGHTFUL WITH OUR DRESS.

WE’VE GROWN ADDICTED TO FAST FASHION,

EACH SEASON BRINGS A NEW COLLECTION.

ONCE WELL REGARDED, NOW DISCARDED,

IF DEEMED TO BEAR AN IMPERFECTION.

WE BUY CLOTHES CHEAP, AND OVER-WASH THEM,

THE CYCLES LONG, TEMPERATURES HIGH.

AND WHEN THEIR SEAMS GROW TIRED, TOSS THEM OUT,

AND SHOP AGAIN, TO ONCE MORE BUY.

THAT MINDSET SIMPLY CAN’T BE MAINTAINED,

SO OFTEN THINGS CAN BE REPAIRED.

THAT GOES FOR PLANETS AS WELL AS JACKETS,

WITH JUST AN OUNCE OF LOVING CARE!”

“BREAK YOUR HABIT NOT YOUR PLANET,

IT’S NOW IMPERATIVE WE TRY.

HERE’S A MINI-RHYMING TIP,

TO BE MORE MINDFUL WHEN WE BUY.

OUR NEED FOR FAST AND NEW CAN’T KEEP UP,

IT’S A HUNGER WE’LL NEVER SATIATE.

BUT WE CAN REDUCE OUR ENVIRONMENTAL FOOTPRINT,

BY SCALING BACK APPAREL WASTE.

RECYCLED CLOTHES CAN LIVE WHOLE NEW LIFE,

SO LET’S BECOME SUCH HABIT LEADERS.

THE WATER SAVING ALONE, FOR A KILO OF RECYCLED COTTON,

IS MORE THAN 4,000 LITRES.

BY BUYING LESS, BUT BUYING BETTER,

WITH THOUGHT-OUT CHOICES, KINDER REASONS,

WE’LL HAVE A WORLD JUST LIKE OUR WARDROBES,

ONE THAT WILL LAST FOR MANY SEASONS.”

“BREAK YOUR HABIT NOT YOUR PLANET,

LET’S MAKE SUSTAINABLE OUR PASSION.

HERE’S A MINI-RHYMING TIP,

TO BE MORE FRIENDLY WITH OUR FASHION.

THE LANDFILL SITES ARE CLOSE TO BUSTING,

AS THEY WREAK HAVOC ON OUR WORLD.

EACH SECOND, 2,600 KILOGRAMS

OF CLOTHES WE NOW DON’T WANT, ARE BURNED.

IF WE AGREED WE DIDN’T WANT THAT,

AND MOVED TO SET THE RECORD STRAIGHT,

A GORGEOUS POLICY FOR OUTFITS PAST,

IS TO TAKE THEM TO DONATE.

LET NOT THE LIFE-CYCLE BE FINALISED,

JUST BECAUSE IT’S TIME TO SAY FAREWELL.

IT’S MUCH MORE SPLENDID WHEN EXTENDED;

THAT GOES FOR MOTHER EARTH AS WELL!”
