Earth Day is coming up this week, so what better way to celebrate than to shout out some of our fave brands that have focused on creating sustainable initiatives. We all know that the fashion industry has a major negative effect on the planet, so it’s always important to seek out brands that are putting in efforts to reduce harm.
Here are our fave brands with sustainable initiatives.
Tentree is dedicated to finding and sourcing the most sustainable fibres and materials available. The brand takes great pride in finding better, healthier, and more eco-progressive solutions for its customers. In addition to placing such a large focus on amazing materials, tentree plants 10 trees per every item purchased. How cool is that?
Earth’s Own, a Canadian brand behind some seriously delicious plant-based milk, is on a mission to change the way the world eats and reduce our carbon “food” print. To celebrate Earth Day, they’ve created #ThePlantChallenge, asking Canadians to eat plant-based all day on Earth Day to help save our planet. After all, it’s the single biggest thing we can do, as individuals, to reduce the impacts of climate change. To participate, eat plants morning, noon, and night, and visit @earthsowncanada to share their call-to-action post. For every share, Earth’s Own will donate 25 cents (up to $25k) to the Plant Project.
