We've come quite a long way since the very first Earth Day on April 22, 1970. Our planet is in an increasingly urgent need of relief from the effects of climate change, and it's an issue that's come to the forefront. The fashion industry, in particular, has really stepped up in recent years, and sustainable brands and collections have become more and more plentiful. This is certainly progress, but as you know, there's a lot more to be done.

It's natural to think, What can I do about the problems that our precious planet faces? But the important thing to remember is that small changes by individuals collectively lead to big ones in the long run. 

So for now, a great way to do your part is to add more sustainable pieces to your closet, and these days, there are more chic ones to choose from than ever. In honor of the 52nd Earth Day, shop our favorite ones below.
