As much as we love fashion, we don't love the effect it has on the environment. The industry is one of the biggest polluters in the world, and it's time to make a change.
This spring, we are celebrating the brands making strides to help the environment by producing clothing with sustainable materials. In March, we offered some great alternatives to fast-fashion brands that are environmentally aware and ensure ethical practices for their workers. This month, we are focusing on a few more brands producing clothes that don't put a strain on the environment.
Check them out below:
1. G-Star Raw
Quite recently, G-Star Raw has been gaining attention worldwide for its contribution improving the environment by launching sustainable products.
G-Star Raw has been sourcing some of its materials from plastic found in our oceans, and is assisting in converting the ocean's junk into stylish denim wear for all.
2. New Classics
New Classics is a Canadian-based studio that manufactures clothes with a strong commitment to innovate the world of sustainable fashion. The brand curates fair trade labels globally, and has a mission to timeless designs with social and environmental responsibility.
3. Chanel Couture
Chanel Couture is all about high fashion ecology, where fashion is done in the most luxurious way. Creative director Karl Lagerfeld takes the ecological aesthetics of his brand very seriously and in his line of clothes, presented for spring 2016, he showcased pieces that used eco-friendly and plant-based materials.
All the beaded embellishments were made in-house as there are no sequins found in wood. In addition, Birds and Bees made appearances on his spectacular spring collection of 2016.
