Earth Day is finally here and it’s time to prioritize giving the earth some love today—and every day. Luckily, there are so many brands that put a major focus on creating sustainable initiatives and practices in their business so that we can feel good about making purchases. The fashion industry is such a huge cause of pollution and carbon emissions, so it’s good to know that there are retailers out there who we can trust and stand behind.
Here are our fave sustainable retailers to shop for Earth Day.
Studio’s products are created with sustainability in mind — its clothing is produced in small batches by a family-owned manufacturing facility in Tirupur, India. All of the Daysuits are made with Lenzing™Ecovero™ viscose fibers, which are made using sustainable wood and pulp procured from certified forests in Austria and Bavaria. In an effort to avoid contributing to the damage caused by the fashion industry, Studio makes its inventory in small batches to reduce its environmental impact.
Mavi continues to reflect on its love and respect for nature as it recently introduced its most sustainable collection to date, ALL BLUE. This line of sustainable jeans is made with Organic Cotton Certified by the OCS, recycled cotton certified by the RCS, and sustainably-produced wood-based Tencel™ fiber certified by Lenzing. Mavi is on a mission to make sustainable denim the norm, not just the premium exception.
Everlane ensures it stays committed to developing sustainable supply chains by using recycled materials, addresses water use and chemical inputs, and invests in carbon offset projects. The shop is full of organic cotton pieces, denim with low-impact dyeing, and accessories made from recycled plastic bottles.
SELV is always thinking of ways to reduce its ecological footprint. To do so, all packaging is made with recyclable glass jars to compostable paper bags! One of its hero scents, Le Rituel Nordique, is packaged in seed paper which can be planted in soil and will eventually grow to become beautiful wildflowers! SELV creates these boxes with different products and raw materials that they no longer need or work with, which makes them a minimal-waste company.
With a mission to do good in the world, Good For Sunday offers a collection of everyday loungewear and staples for all, in a wide range of colourways and styles. Each and every one of its products are 100% designed and made in Canada, in partnership with family-owned companies who also believe in the ethics of fair labor. From eco-friendly materials to neutralizing its carbon emissions, being environmentally conscious is an inherent part of Good For Sunday’s brand values.
Tentree is dedicated to finding and sourcing the most sustainable fibers 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 for every item purchased. How cool is that?
Chatters strive to offer the most inclusive and environmentally sustainable salon and shopping experience. Last year, the company launched Style Consciously, which is an initiative about making mindful choices- choices that positively impact your health, lifestyle, and environment. Plus, for the month of April and May to celebrate Earth Day, you can bring in your empty shampoo and conditioner bottles for 20% off your Biolage purchase!
Kuwalla Tee prides itself on being eco-friendly and minimizing waste, without compromising quality, style, comfort, and affordability. All of the brand’s packaging is made from recyclable and biodegradable material and it’s also a proud partner of 1% for the planet!
