Here is an Earth Day blog post I created for Tattered, the resale clothing boutique I work for! Click on any of the photos to view the brand websites – I do actually love them and want to spread the word about them!
Celebrate Earth Day with Eco Friendly Brands!
Happy Earth Day!
If you’re reading our blog & love shopping at Tattered, you most likely already value saving the environment, saving money, and finding items that make you look & feel amazing! Shopping through resale is a great way to green up your wardrobe, but where can you look when you want something new, or when you can’t physically come in to shop?
We’ve found quite a few awesome Eco friendly brands over the years, and we’re excited to share some of our favorites with you! Here’s to expanding your horizons with your wardrobe, and to supporting brands who support the planet! Check em out:
Girlfriend Collective is a great brand for sustainable active wear! They use recycled plastics to make their polyester, sustainable dyeing practices, disposal techniques in their production, and support fair labor practices. They have easy, effortless styles in many gorgeous colors so you can add their pieces to your wardrobe and look great doing it!
Everlane is another fantastic brand that focuses on ethical production, radical transparency, and high quality in all their products. They recently added a denim collection made at the “world’s most sustainable denim factory”, and just launched a new underwear line last month! With these expansion you can support ethically made clothing with all you wear, and with so many great styles available for both women and men, we think you’ll love Everlane just like we do!
Veja has been called the most sustainable sneaker company, and for good reason! They only use sustainably sourced materials (organic cotton, vegetable dyes, amazonian wild rubber that supports local rubber tappers and reduces deforestation, and more!), they only use factories with fair labor practices, and they operate with transparency throughout their company. They don’t advertise, and the money they save from marketing goes straight back into making the company even greener, which we love! Plus, their sneakers are stylish and great quality, making them a great addition to any wardrobe. Veja offers mens, womens, and kids styles, so the whole family can love & rock em’!
Patagonia is an oldie but remains a goody. They stay true to their mission, to “build the best product, cause no unnecessary harm, &…to inspire and implement solutions to the environmental crisis”. They’ve pushed sustainable practices in the apparel industry for decades by encouraging customers to make fewer and more thoughtful purchases, implementing a mending program to fix old Patagonia items, offering products made with sustainable, organic, and even recycled materials, supporting environmental and social activism, and much more! They’re well known for their durable outerwear, surf, and camping gear, but they also carry everyday casual clothing. So even if you hate the idea of a hike you can still show some green support & look great doing it!
Parks Project is a great brand to show your love of national parks and all the outdoors! They have awesome tees, bags, and even mugs with logos from parks around the country. And they directly support park conservation both by donating part of their proceeds back to the parks and organizing volunteer days on site! You can get involved with park restoration too, or simply support your favorite park and get a great tee in the process!
Aday focuses on making versatile, long lasting pieces so you can make your wardrobe go further with fewer pieces and last season after season. They’re dedicated to making technical advances so one garment can take the place of many and be worn year round. They use sustainable fabrics and even recycled materials in their production. They combine polished career style with comfortable atheleisure, and are a perfect fit for those who love capsule wardrobes, so you can keep your style and reduce your consumption all in one!
Teeki uses recycled water bottles to make comfy and adorable activewear! Their products are all made in the U.S., reducing their carbon footprint and ensuring great working conditions in their factories. Plus, they have a large array of fun prints and styles so you can easily add in their clothing to your workout, or simply your everyday style!
Pact is a great go-to for sustainably made basics – even socks & underwear! They make incredibly comfy garments and only use Fair Trade Certified factories for their production. They refuse to allow toxic dyes and pesticides into their manufacturing process, and even use recycled materials for some of their items! So you can support sustainably made clothing even down to the smallest parts of your wardrobe!
We hope you guys loved this small look into environmentally friendly fashion, and that you take some inspiration to green up your wardrobe in whatever ways you can!
Happy Earth Day, and here’s to making every day just a bit greener!
