The fashion industry is one of the largest polluters globally, and the production of new wedding dresses contributes to this as 90% of the emissions are created during the production fo an wedding dress. By renting a dress, you are helping to reduce the demand for new dresses, and create a circular economy which helps reduce your carbon footprint.
