Given the amount of information that's out there about how damaging clothing production can be to the environment, more and more eco-friendly brands are popping up, and more and more existing brands are creating sustainable and ethical collections (or doing their part to implement greener business practices). Which means that it's easier than ever for us, as consumers, to contribute to the health of the environment. After all, according to The Economist, global clothing production doubled between the years of 2000 and 2014 (yikes). It's safe to say that there's never been a better time to add some eco-friendly style to your life.
While changing the trajectory of the environment can seem out of reach for one person, by supporting sustainable brands, you're helping to ensure that their success will encourage more and more brands to follow in their eco-friendly footsteps, which will indeed have a significant impact on the planet. Oh, and did we mention that these brands are really stylish?
With that, read on to find out which eco-friendly brands and collections fashion girls love (and shop our favorite pieces, naturally).
