Honestly this was a hard blog post to write because now I JUST WANT TO GO SHOPPING! Seriously though all of these sustainable fashion brands are AMAZING and they are so worth the investment because you are also saving the environment! My new motto is to shop smarter and buy a few things that I absolutely love instead of many things that aren’t even that great.
We’ve all been there… we fill our carts with 10 items and the total is…. ONLY $100! It’s such a good deal! But the package comes and after trying everything on only 2 are worth keeping? Seriously everything else looks horrible in person, the fabric sucks, the fit is all wrong, and you end up returning more than half and feeling super disappointed with your still lacking wardrobe.
Then there is that one item in your closet that is a staple in your wardrobe and you end up wearing multiple times a week because its just awesome! Think about those items that you wear almost every week. How much did you spend on them? Maybe $100? Or even $200? It felt crazy at the time to spend so much on just one thing… but if you do the math and break down the cost per wear of the item you’d probably be at $1-$5 per wear by now! That’s so worth the $100! And that item you bought for just $10 seemed like a good idea at the time, but you’ve maybe worn it once and now it’s just wasting space in your closet!
It is time to say NO MORE to this cycle of buying cheap and returning less than quality clothing from cheap brands…. not only are these brands not helping your closet, they are harming the environment! Cheap and fast fashion are inherently bad for the earth and we need to show fashion companies that we demand quality over quantity. Our purchasing behaviors can seriously impact the shift to better practices in the fashion industry!
Think about high ticket items as a real investment THAT WILL PAY OFF in wears! And that’s what sustainable fashion is all about. It’s about spending a little more on something that is good for the environment and that you will keep and love for a long time to come. And trust me these brands I’m about to show you are WELL WORTH the investment! Read on for my top 6 Sustainable Fashion Brands that I know you’ll absolutely LOVE!
I hope this has sparked your interest in a new sustainable brand and will help you think twice about where you are spending your money and how you want to fill your closet. Look for the companies who are transparent, caring and working towards doing better for our planet!Love Lauren
