Feel Good Fashions For Earth Month
While we should be celebrating the Earth every single day, Earth Month is a great reminder that there are so many amazing and sustainable fashion choices; from fairtrade fashion brands and organic materials, to vintage pieces and renting the runway. Another option? Investing only in pieces that you genuinely love (and wear over, and over, and over). Reducing your carbon footprint has never looked so good with these eco-friendly fashion options.
Outland denim isn’t only committed to organic fabrics but sustainable employment practices and training opportunities for women who were rescued from human trafficking. The ultimate essential, KOTN‘s t-shirts are made from best long-staple cotton in the world – and the company is socially conscious, dedicated funds to build schools in the region of Egypt where the cotton is grown. Even the sunnies by brand Dresden are made from 100% recycled nylon.
These fabulous floral separates by TAMGA are made from Tencel, a sustainable fabric created from wood pulp. Other fabrics to keep your eyes peeled for include hemp, linen, and organic cotton.
Another great way to reduce your footprint is vintage or consignment clothing. Not only is it friendly for the environment, but friendly on your wallet and you can source designer goods at 70-80% off retail prices.
This matching set is from H&M’s conscious collection and is one giant step towards the companies goal: by 2030 to have 100% of their products be sustainable. Bonus if you take your unwanted clothing to any H&M across Canada, they will give you a $5 coupon towards your purchase.
