While Earth Month and particularly Earth Day (Thursday, April 22, FYI) are a helpful reminder to reduce your carbon footprint, you should do your part to gain some knowledge about sustainable fashion brands in general. That way, you can shop ethically year round and already have the background about where your clothes are coming from — along with how they’re produced. We’re really happy to say that in 2021, we’ve been receiving more reassuring updates than ever from brands that are keeping responsibility top of mind, and the list of 19 here are just some of our favorites.
We got specific and curated a handful of items we feel good shelling out the cash for because they come from companies that aim to minimize fabric waste and upcycle old materials whenever possible. In addition, you’ll find a new collaboration from The RealReal called ReCollection 01, which is a partnership with luxury designers that allows you to purchase original pieces from the archives, recrafted and updated for a fraction of the original price. How cool is that? Whether it’s a new swimsuit you’re looking for, a romantic, flowy spring dress, or a fresh pair of sneakers, there’s something made sustainably here for you.
