LONDON - Fashion rental firm Onloan has questioned a recent report which claimed that renting clothes was a bigger contributor to climate change than wearing them for longer and then throwing them away.

Researchers at LUT University in Finland calculated the greenhouse gas emissions connected to five different ways of owning and disposing of clothing and concluded that rental had the highest climate impact of all.

Rental created the most emissions, they claimed, because of the transportation involved in sending items back and forth to customers, while the most sustainable way to consume fashion was determined to be buying fewer items and wearing them for as long as possible.
