Interesting idea. (I don't even wear dresses any more!)

New Jersey teacher wears same dress for 100 days to promote sustainable fashion

It's not really a unique idea though. It's not much different from wearing a uniform to work. Students in most private schools do the exact same thing every day. They wear the same uniforms to school and after school is out as soon as they get home they change out of their uniforms into every day clothes.

I'm betting the teacher(s) the article is about change out of their school dresses into something else when they get home too.

So if sustainable fashion is the main goal then why wouldn't it serve the same purpose and be more sensible to just promote uniforms for everybody, faculty and students, in all schools, both private and public? And not just for schools. Schools aren't the only places of work or study where uniforms are already common apparel.

I love this idea. I read recently, that the amount of time we spend clothing ourselves (shopping, laundering, sorting, choosing, mending) clothes, and the amount of time Americans spend on maintaining their front yard grass landscapes is a monumental waste of our lives.

It would be great if everyone had 5 outfits to wear, that would cover any occasion. 1 Exercise, 1 formal, 2 work, 1 casual.

Done. And don't spend anytime on the yard. Don't plant grass, if needed plant native xeroscape gardening, and done.

I have always hated the idea of uniforms. I hate the idea of homogenous neighborhoods, where all the houses look alike too. I guess I'll never choose to live in an HOA neighborhood, with 'approved' colors, etc.

Whenever I hear or read about people promoting the idea of uniforms, and everyone being homogenous, I think of what China was like under Mao Zedong.
