Known for its clever stripes and convenient pockets, the London label thoughtfully employs organic cotton fabrics and item-specific “green” checklists — calling out features from carbon neutrality to fair trade — for each garment.
Dive into summer in one of the modern glam designer’s suits, as much an ode to former employers Alexander McQueen and Matthew Williamson as the tiny Rio de Janeiro atelier where Olsson has them produced.
Looks aside, there’s little not to love about the UK/Brazilian flops. Patented PVC plastic and seasonal partnerships with global green charities add up to vegan-friendly, 100 percent recyclable beach kicks with serious style.
The lace may be retro, but its production is thoroughly modern: This brand’s got a zero-tolerance policy when it comes to sweatshop production and has partnered with The Carbon Fund to plant a tree for every pair sold.
Stretch twill and ombre may be funky, but there’s nothing sketch about these jeans: The namesake, Factor, insists on using low-impact textiles, local California garment manufacturing, and animal-free production and products.
BACK TO SLIDE
It's so easy being green.
Or at least, it can be. Since today is Earth Day, it's important to think of our home -- locally and globally -- in everything we do. Choosing foods that are organic, a car that's a hybrid and cleaner energy options (we know someone who has solar panels lining the roof of her family home) are all great steps toward a cleaner planet, but you can do even more.
For the fashion lovers among us, it's exciting to think about all of the clothing options out there that aren't just green, but stylish as well! So when you're riding your bike to the store rather than jumping in the car, also consider how the backpack you're carrying could be sustainable too.
