About half the group felt challenged after the first 3 to 6 weeks, not wanting to wear the jeans anymore. In an early study, Jack asked 30 participants (31 including herself) to wear a pair of jeans at least five times a week for three months. Its true that washing machines are more efficient than they used. The participants were selected through social media. Researchers at the University of Manchester found that people typically wear things once or twice before throwing them in the laundry basket, and would do a load of washing when the load basket was full. Newday 2017, from July 4th to 14th, 42 participants, with 19 from the Nordic countries and 23 from Asia, together with 18 lecturers and speakers, joined the first Nansen East-West Dialogue Academy (newday) at Nansen Academy, Lillehammer, Norway.

This March, theres going to be an exhibition of thirty such pairs at the National Gallery of Victoria, Australia. The experiment is a part of her Master of Philosophy thesis and she wants to use the findings to challenge our extreme clean culture. The good news is that there is one easy way to reduce the environmental impact of your clothes; wash them less often.
