Hey Brush Babes ! As It’s never been more important for brands and consumers to embrace sustainability,thankfully, many players in the fashion industry are listening to the needs of our planet and making greener choices as a result.
There was a time when sustainable clothing’would conjure images of unflattering and suspiciously scratchy styles. Thankfully, there are now a number of brands challenging that view.
Today, there are many brands taking steps to minimise the industry’s carbon footprint and implement ethical practices too without compromising on style.
Some achieve a more sustainable status through the fabrics they use, either opting for recycled materials, or natural fabrics that biodegrade at the end of their life cycle. Others work on slowing down and reducing their production, for example making pieces to order or in very small batches, to reduce their carbon footprint.
Here are 5 sustainable brands to consider investing in.
