“Sustainable fashion is a movement and process of fostering change to fashion products and fashion system towards greater ecological integrity and social justice. Sustainable fashion concerns more than addressing fashion textiles or products. It comprises addressing the whole system of fashion.”
For the love of fashion and eco-living, we’ve found some “green brands” that you can support:
1. ADIDAS Goes Green
“THE OCEAN IS FILLED WITH PLASTIC & ADIDAS IS DOING SOMETHING ABOUT IT”
A variety of stylish footwear available online.
Adidas’ latest running shoe is subtle and soft-looking, with stitching that evokes the sea. It’s also made almost entirely from plastic recovered from the ocean. It is green and #ohsostylish!
Last year, Adidas teased a prototype of a shoe that it was working on to clean up the oceans and adjust its supply chain to better reflect the constraints of climate change. They partnered with Parley A.I.R. and in their own words; “We are working with PARLEY to prevent plastic entering our oceans and transform it into high-performance sportswear. Spinning the problem into a solution. The threat into a thread.” #ADIDASPARLEY
We love a good cause and fashionable sportswear!
2. Panda Sunglasses
Wesli Bamboo Sunglasses Available online.
Panda Sunglasses (pictured above) are custom made for your face shape, all from sustainable Moso bamboo. Bonus, you still get that UVA protection. Bigger bonus, they are partnered with Pencils of Promise to bring education to the 250 million kids lacking basic education levels of reading, writing, and math. Oh, and did we mention that it comes with a lifetime warranty? Stunning #eyewear for a good cause!
