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

Nadia dress from Prana – $45

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.
