SustainableQATAR’s 52 weekly challenges – that is one challenge per week for a whole year themed by month – are Qatar-specific and Qatar-relevant opportunities for all residents to take actions in personal life, work and within our communities.

Has a favourite outfit ever let you down? You bought it and it looked great on you when you wore it for the first time, but then, after the first wash, it was a lot less attractive or perhaps even out of shape?

This week we make durability your new clothes mantra. We are carefully examining our buying choices and how to get the biggest bang for the buck. We will scrutinize materials and material additives because that determines not only care instructions like washing and drying or dry cleaning but also what ends up in our bodies and in our oceans. Make it last. Wash Less – Fight ocean plastics!

This week our challenge is about quality control to extend the life of our favourite clothes while reducing our cancer risk and saving water and energy and reducing ocean microplastics. Does that sound like an interesting wild mix of things?

See Challenge #38 ~ Extend the life of our clothes.

The goal of SustainableQATAR’s 52 Weekly Challenges is to inspire and provide easy actions we can take every day to live more sustainably. Thank you for joining us.
