Earth Day

A Spotlight on Sustainable Brands

In honor of Earth Day, I think it’s important to showcase brands that are committed to preserving it. In recent years, sustainability has been more of a priority in the fashion industry. Consumers are making more mindful decisions about the way they shop and choosing to support brands with sustainable practices. 

If you want to get more into environmentally-conscious shopping, here are some brands that are doing it right.


Whimsy + Row

With a mission to provide ease and elegance for the modern creative women, LA-based brand Whimsy + Row makes it easy to shop sustainably. Not only are their pieces beautiful, but they are handcrafted in ethical conditions. They use only locally sourced deadstock textiles and materials to create eco-friendly clothing that will last you a lifetime.

House of Sunny

House of Sunny is a London-based brand that acts against fast fashion. Producing only two small sustainable runs of collections a year, they give their design team time to research and source sustainable fabrics and manufacturing methods. Not only that, but their styles are undeniably unique and chic, great for fashionistas that love experimenting.

Boyish Jeans

Boyish Jeans is a California-founded sustainable women’s denim brand. With transparency as a priority, their list of sustainability programs and practices is about a mile-long. Just to name a few, they use non-toxic dyes and gentle processes to protect water, create their products with vegan denim and recycled cotton, implement honorable factory-working conditions, have a zero-waste policy and reduce overall emissions to achieve carbon neutrality. 

Thought Clothing

Thought Clothing, another UK-based ethical brand, is proving that there are more sustainable ways to shop. They put thought into everything they do from sourcing materials to the ways they can inspire the fashion industry and give back to the community. Some of their sustainability highlights include: 100% biodegradable garment bags, vegan clue, organic cotton and 100% sea freight.
