Sustainable Fashion Part 2

A few weeks ago we did a post about 3 places that we love to shop sustainable fashion online. This week we’ve got 3 more!

Indigenous 

Flirt Skirt from Indigenous – $79.

This shop carries fair trade & organic men’s and women’s clothing lines. Indigenous works with local artisans to provide them educational materials, financing, and equipment that couldn’t be afforded otherwise. We are big fans of the “flirt skirt” in a fantastic teal color for $79.  It’s also available in merlot!

Prana

You can shop Prana in person and online. You can find anything from adorable yoga clothing to casual wear to wear-to-work pieces. The company uses organic

cotton and recycled polyester in their garments whenever possible. They also work with fair trade artisans to create a few great pieces for their men’s and women’s clothing lines. Prana has also made efforts to streamline their manufacturing practices and packaging to reduce waste. Besides their yoga pants, we are coveting the Nadia dress in black, on sale for $45!

American Apparel

While not everything from American Apparel is made from organic fabrics, they do have one big advantage over many other clothing companies: they are sweatshop free and made in the good old U.S.A.! Reducing the environmental impact of transporting clothing can significantly reduce the negative impacts of the fashion industry on the environment and impoverished workers around the world. And hey, SOME of their t-shirts and underwear are available in organic cotton.

3 Places To Shop Sustainable Fashion

Glam Noir Dress – $88 from Mata Traders

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!

  1. 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 🙂

    Melanie Dress – $50 from Threads for Thought

  2. 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!
  3. 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!
