This year we are trying to make better purchases. Better for us, the environment, and our wallets. So we’ve been hunting for some affordable and sustainable clothing lines. It is so hard to find “sustainable clothing” that isn’t just yoga pants and t-shirts! A girl’s (and a guy’s) gotta wear more than just lounge wear!
Here are three places you can shop for more sustainable clothing and accessories. We promise you will find more than organic t-shirts, although they usually have these too!
- Mata Traders - This online shop is stocked fair trade finds. The dresses are adorable, and so are their tops. You can feel good about making a purchase that supports fair trade practices and empowers your fellow woman! We are loving this polka-dotted little black dress with a sweetheart neckline! Perfect for date night
- Threads for Thought - A great shop organic cotton basics and some adorable dresses and tops. You can even find some of their goods at Whole Foods. Our favorite part about this brand is that they are affordable! The Melanie dress is only $50!
- Green Heart Shop - Another great fair trade online shop featuring clothing and accessories, as well as goodies for your home and kitchen! Fair trade not only ensures that workers receive a fair wage for their work, but also ensures environmental sustainability, supports participatory workplaces, and protects cultural identity. The prices are pretty reasonable and they have some great pieces that you could even rock to work. We are totally smitten with their Maureen Dress for $92.
This stunner paired with a blazer would work for any office or board room!
