With my birthday coming up in less than a week, I’ve been thinking about birthday gifts and what I want to ask for! In the six months since I’ve started this blog (happy mini anniversary to me!) I’ve discovered more sustainable fashion brands that I never knew existed before. Which is amazing because that’s a huge reason I started blogging. You seriously don’t have to sacrifice your style to shop sustainably, and there are so many different brands out there for everyone to enjoy. In honor of my birthday, I’m sharing my top five birthday wish list items! Hopefully this list helps you discover a brand you never knew existed, and maybe you’ll want something on here as much as I do! So, without further ado, here you go!
For me, shoes are one of the hardest things to shop sustainably. I either don’t love them, or they’re way out of my price range. Veja, on the other hand, has sneakers that are both cute and priced very reasonably. Veja’s shoes are made with organic and recycled materials and they encourage transparency and sustainability within the fashion industry.
Reformation was one of the first sustainable fashion brands I heard of, and still probably one of my favorites. They use sustainable fabrics for their pieces as well as encourage better practices in their supply chain. They also track the environmental impact of fashion, and share information on each piece of clothing they sell on their website.
Mochni Graphic Tee
Mochni is an online platform which provides information on conscious fashion, beauty, food, etc. They are a great resource for discovering new brands and information about sustainability. They also sell this t-shirt, which is made with 100% organic cotton and printed eco-consciously. Aside from liking the shirt, I like the message it sends, and love supporting a website like Mochni.
Urban Renewal Slip Dress
Urban Renewal is actually another brand I have been shopping for awhile. Their items are made in the U.S. from vintage and dead stock materials. Each piece is unique, because they are all made individually. Cue everybody complaining in the reviews that their outfit doesn’t look exactly like it did online, so just remember that before you order!
Nicole Bridger Trench Coat
Nicole Bridger is a brand I just recently discovered. The designs are classic pieces (i.e. this trench) that aren’t going out of style any time soon, which is a huge piece of sustainable fashion. They also work hard to source sustainable fabrics from renewable materials like hemp, organic cotton and linen. Nicole Bridger created the brand in order to merge her passions for eco-consciousness and fashion, and she did just that!
So there you have it! Hopefully you enjoyed the list, and if you have any sustainable items you’ve been really wanting recently leave them in the comments!
