Since I made a post about five fast fashion brands to avoid, I thought it would be great to have a follow up post where I share some of the better places to shop because of the materials they use and the sustainable practices they implement. I’ve also tried to include some affordable options as I know that sustainable fashion can get expensive.
Pact: This brand is great because it offers a variety of clothing, basic pieces, and home items that are made from organic materials. Pact partners with Fair Trade USA, Global Organic Textile Standard, and Simplizero, all great organizations that ensure fair treatment of workers and the use of sustainable materials. Additionally, they are affordable for those hoping to be sustainable on a budget, with prices starting as low as $25.
Tentree: Tentree is another brand that focuses on sustainability, specifically water waste and the environment. For every purchase that is made, Tentree plants ten trees (they’ve planted over 75 million trees to this day!). They also have incentives for customers, such as rewarding them with redeemable points when they shop and offering free shipping on orders over $50.
Girlfriend Collective: Girlfriend Collective is a popular brand that sells women’s athleisure and clothing. They’re a great brand to support because they use recycled fabrics and packaging and genuinely care about the impact that they are making on the environment. If you visit their website, you can see more statistics about fast fashion and how they’re choosing to combat that.
Nudie Jeans: As we all know by now, jeans are one of the most wasteful products from fast fashion and require a ton of water in order to be made. Nudie Jeans uses all organic, fair trade or recycled cotton, so they’re ensuring that you can get a pair of jeans without it being detrimental to the environment. Their products are on the pricier side, but they’re sure to last you years and years.
Reformation: I love Reformation so much because they have seriously cute clothing while also providing sustainability initiatives. Reformation sends out a progress report where they share their environmental impact while also making clothing. Their goal is to be climate positive by 2025 too which is especially exciting.
As always, feel free to leave comments below with questions and/or recommendations for sustainable places to shop! I hope this post was helpful.
