We all love that feel of freshly washed clothes but did you know that up to two-thirds of your clothes’ carbon footprint occurs after you take your garment home? This can be from how it is washed to how long you keep your garment in your wardrobe for. By keeping clothes in circulation for 3 months longer than normal can help reduce the impact on carbon, water, and waste by 10%*! You can affect positive change for the planet by just by wearing your clothes a little bit longer. Here are our top tips for smarter washing to keep your emissions down, save energy, and lengthen the life of your garments so you have more time to spend with your Mala piece.
- WASH AS NEEDED
- REMEMBER TO KEEP THE WASHING TEMPERATURE COLD/COOL
- USE A MILD, ECO-FRIENDLY LIQUID DETERGENT. WE USE NON-TOXIC DIRT PRODUCTS THAT REDUCE PLASTIC PACKAGING WITH THEIR BULK REFILL PACKS AND CONTRIBUTE 50% OF PROFITS TO OCEAN CLEANUP. LEARN MORE
- USE THE NATURAL POWER OF THE SUN TO DRY YOUR CLOTHES
- ONLY PUT A LOAD ON WHEN THE LOAD IS FULL
Make an effort to buy from local suppliers, farmers markets or sustainable stores whilst being mindful of what you buy and bringing your own reusable shopping bags.

Mala’s goal is to design classic, versatile styles that last and are adored for seasons to come. Carefully choosing styles and purchasing pieces you love to complement your existing wardrobe, while minimizing waste in the fashion industry. There’s nothing like something brand new so purchase things you know you’ll love for a long time.
