Now more than ever, it’s essential to think about what we buy and how we do it. I will be the first to admit that I love Zara and H&M, but I’m trying to get as far as I can from fast fashion and start buying from sustainable and ethical brands. It’s nice to have a million cheap clothes, but that’s not the way we want to go to take care of our planet. There are a million things we can change, and the way we shop and consume fashion should be the first one to do so.
It takes more than 2,000 gallons of water to make a simple pair of jeans, think about how many you have in your closet. I know I could have my very own water park with the number of jeans I own.
I’m not saying that we are bad people because we love clothes or we consume fast fashion, but it’s time to think about it and try to change it bit by bit.
I recently read this feature with Stella McCartney called “The Fashion Revolution” and I discovered what it means to consume fashion sustainably and responsibly.
Check out some of the sustainable and ethical brands I love and respect the most:
My favourite cosmetics brand. I am warning you, once you get in Lush’s world you can’t get out. Even my boyfriend gets bath bombs, I’m not even joking. They only use natural products coming from fair trade, and their policy with workers is said to be great. They’re vegan, cruelty-free and all the nice things you can imagine. I have a lot of hair problems because of my anxiety and Lush is my go-to brand when I need to take extra care of it.
2. Stella McCartney
As I said, Stella McCartney is extremely devoted to sustainability. Their mission statement says: “We are agents of change. We challenge and push boundaries to make luxurious products in a way that is fit for the world we live in today and the future: beautiful and sustainable. No compromises”. This is one of the most sustainable and ethical brands right now.
3. Maison De Mode
Maison de Mode is an American brand that creates clothes from recycled and organic fabrics. Completely artisan and cruelty-free, Maison de Mode fights for fair trade and supports community businesses. This is an amazing example of sustainable and ethical brands.
I am so in love with this brand. They have the best jackets and coats I’ve ever seen. They also use organic and recycled fabrics from the best quality and design their clothes to be long-lasting. They sale their clothes online and in small family businesses.
5. Epoque Evolution
Founded in 2018, Epoque Evolution is a women-led brand. They “choose sustainable, organic, upcycled, deadstock and post-consumer waste recycled fibres when available”. They work to reduce the collective carbon print and create chic and versatile clothes that you can wear in any situation of your life.
Reformation base their brand on 4 Ps: Product, People, Planet and Progress. Their 5-years framework aims to bring sustainable fashion to everyone. Limiting their carbon footprint and design for durability and high quality are some of the actions they take. If that wasn’t enough, they have the cutest stuff.
I know some of these sustainable and ethic brands are pretty expensive, and not everyone can afford it but we can help the situation in a lot of different ways.
