Carbon Neutral Dance Costume Hire

Reduce your environmental impact by hiring your dance costumes.

A harsh reality

Each year, the clothing industry is responsible for more carbon emissions than airline flights and shipping combined.

Most of a garment’s carbon emissions (about 70%) occur during production. For each 1kg of fabric produced, an estimated 23kg of greenhouse gasses are released.

Buying dance costumes has a massive environmental impact. Costumes are bought, worn a few times, put in storage and then thrown away to landfill.

This is bad for your pocket and terrible for the environment.

Affordable and sustainable

Keeping a garment going has very little environmental impact - laundry is responsible for just 3% of a garment’s lifetime carbon emissions.

Extending the life of a garment by just an extra nine months can reduce the carbon, water and waste impact of that garment by as much as 30%.

Leading the way

Costume Source is proud to be the world's first Carbon Neutral dance costume hire company.

We reduce our carbon emissions in all aspects of the business as much as possible and then offset any emissions we can't eliminate. This includes the initial production of the garments as well as shipping.

All our boxes and paper are from sustainable, well managed sources and are recyclable. We only use paper-based packaging tape that is compostable and recyclable (no single use plastics like parcel tape here).

All our old packaging and paper gets recycled and we don't send to landfill.

We plant trees

Each time you hire from us, we plant trees!

We plant trees for each booking.
Since 2020 we have planted about {{ trees.planted }} trees!

Whether you are actively trying to make a difference or just want to save some money, help do your bit and hire your dance costumes.

Prices are for a 14 day hire unless otherwise stated and include VAT where applicable. Images are for illustration only. No accessories are included unless stated.
