Money well spent

Saint Basics Saint Basics 21 Sep 2022 Money well spent
In January 2024 Shop Like You Give a Damn acquired Saint Basics. This is why all the editorial content that founders Peter and Anita created with so much dedication, is now featured amongst our blogs.

We fully understand you’re watching what you spend these days, and that sustainability might not be your top priority. But did you know shopping sustainably can be good for your wallet as well? 

Isn’t sustainable clothing expensive?
View it as an investment: You’re just not going to get a good quality piece for a few pennies. Sustainable clothing costs more to produce because care is taken to choose high quality raw materials, the best knitting techniques, and a process without nasty chemicals that irritate your skin. So it’s true that sustainable clothing costs more, but you also get much more in return. And when your clothing lasts for many years it saves you a lot of money in the long run. Plus there’s many more benefits!

What kind of benefits?
Sustainability and ethical production go hand in hand. That means no sweatshops, no child labour and no unfair treatment for anyone. By shopping sustainably you’re giving others respect, a roof over their head and food on the table. And you get to feel good about that every day. How nice is that? 

It can also feel much more uncluttered. When you have less clothing of better quality you always know exactly what’s in your closet. Go ahead and hit that snooze button one more time, because you’ll be dressed and ready to go in no time. You’ll also spend way less time washing and tidying, which gives peace of mind ánd saves on your water bill.

How do I make my investment affordable?
That depends on what you plan on spending, but you definitely don’t have to get everything in one go. Just treat yourself with to that one nice shirt, and see how you like it. If you're considering shopping with us, please subscribe to the newsletter and receive a 5% discount on your first order!

This is how we make the world a little bit nicer for everyone, and save some money at the same time. It feels good to be a Saint!
