Sustainable Fashion Brands
Who doesn’t love fall fashion? Hello cozy sweaters and booties! Now that Autumn has officially begun, we’re ready to spice up our wardrobes. Our team is passionate about both fashion and sustainability, so it is important for us to be mindful of our environmental footprint, especially in the way we shop and what we wear. We’re sharing our favorite clothing brands making a difference and shaking up the sustainable fashion industry.
Nuuly, a new monthly clothing subscription service, is taking clothing rental to a whole new level. The brand sends you your six-monthly selections in a garment bag made from recycled water bottles, has invested in energy-efficient wet and dry-cleaning machines and uses environmentally friendly cleaning products. Did we mention the clothes are to die for?! If you haven’t hopped onto the Nuuly train, it’s time!
Reformation is rocking the industry by being so open about the way they create each garment and the result of their creations. They invest in green building infrastructure to minimize their waste, water and energy footprints. Reformation tracks their environmental footprint by adding up the pounds of carbon dioxide emitted, gallons of water they use and pounds of waste they generate and then calculate how their products help reduce the impacts compared to other clothing in the country. They post this information on their website to give customers empowered choices when shopping. We’re currently obsessed with this cardigan. One in each color please!
Anko partners with the Better Cotton Initiative, a not-for-profit organization that exists to make global cotton production better for the people who produce it, for the environment it grows in and for the global cotton market’s future. Anko has set a goal to source 100% of their clothing, towel, bedding ranges and decorative details more sustainably by July 2020. Dress this skirt up or down for every occasion! It pairs perfectly with heeled booties and a black tank for date night or sneakers and a t-shirt for a more casual look.
Amour Vert, which translates to “Green Love” in English, is another team favorite. To eliminate excess waste and create sustainable clothing, their pieces are made in limited quantities in California and they work directly with mills to develop signature fabrics, that are durable, soft and sustainable. We’ll be curled up in this sweater all fall long!
