In Sweden, almost one item of clothing out of two never sees the light while textile consumption keeps increasing. In order to stop this nonsense, four women created, during the Stockholm Fashion Week, the first clothes library. Named Lanegarderoben, this library, through a yearly subscription, gives female customers access to a great number of models, thus providing them with the opportunity to treat themselves to their dream styles while reducing their impacts on the environment. It works exactly as a standard library: female customers can hire clothes for a limited amount of time and must pay a fine if they return them late.
In the Maternity Clothes Library of Oxford, England, hiring an item of clothing during pregnancy will cost future mums £ 2 only.
