Let’s face it: When it comes to our beautiful planet, unfortunate things have been happening for a long time – from plastic taking over our oceans and climate change to deforestation and clean water scarcity. And while one person can’t singlehandedly fix these issues, we can work together to make small, impactful changes. One of the ways we can help is by buying from sustainable brands.
What Is Sustainable Fashion?
Simply put, sustainable fashion brands create garments in ways that are respectful of humanity and the environment. These companies make conscious efforts to save natural resources, use less water, reduce their carbon footprint, and protect animals. In addition, they advocate for safer and fairer working conditions and do not support child labor.
Now that we have some background knowledge of sustainable fashion and why it’s super-important, let’s look at some sustainable brands we love.
This Fair Trade Certified brand offers a wide range of products for men, women, children, and home. It uses certified organic cotton in its garments, utilizes carbon-offset shipping complete with recycled and biodegradable packaging, and offers a donation program for used clothes. And when we say these garments are the softest clothes ever, we mean it!
Good news for those who love a capsule wardrobe: Vetta offers a number of pre-selected capsules, or you can build your own capsule, each of which translates into more than 30 outfits that are guaranteed to last for years. The brand uses certified organic cotton and other sustainable products, practices ethical production, and uses recycled packaging. Oh, and good luck choosing a capsule because they’re all to die for.
Able garments are made all over the world by female artisans who are paid fairly and know they will be safe at work, as the brand goes above and beyond to make sure its female employees are well taken care of. Able’s goal is to end cyclical poverty and create economic opportunities that allow women to provide for themselves. Aside from being an all-around incredible company, the brand also offers free virtual styling, a try-before-you-buy program, free returns, and free exchanges for any size fluctuations within a year – something we would love to see more companies get behind!
