We are now living in an age where buying less and buying better is deemed to be more beneficial to our planet. 

After the devastating wildfires in the Amazon and across Australia, it’s now more important than ever to take small steps which can make a big difference to the planet.

By becoming more conscious of the clothes we buy, we can gradually say goodbye to fast fashion and move toward a greener future.

So, here are four sustainable fashion brands to keep your eye on:

Monsoon

Many people may be unaware, but Monsoon have been bringing sustainable fashion to the mainstream for decades.

They have several schemes in place to reduce packaging and waste, and their Green Action Programme helps to save energy in stores. Their new S. E. W collection (Seeking an Eco-friendly World) is created using responsibly sourced materials and has alternative denim options which are created with a lower environmental impact.

Nobody’s Child

Nobody’s Child is bringing trendy, affordable pieces to your doorstep. This self-conscious ethical brand produces small collections to ensure they are not having a negative impact on the environment.

Their aim of providing fast fashion with ‘sustainable solutions’ from source, production and to the finished product, this stylish brand is one to look out for.

The friendly prices are even friendlier to your student budget!

Armedangels

Armedangels show that organic is not just a trend. This sustainable brand has fashion choices for male and females, with a range of stylish picks for your wardrobe!

Although some items are on the pricey side, these investment pieces are sustainable and show the future of fashion.

This German brand has implemented organic and recycled materials, showing how responsible thinking can still result in amazing clothes!

Thought

As the name suggests, this ethical brand aims to encourage thought. The North London based label is thoughtful in every step, putting the needs of the environment and people at the centre of their ethos.

This brand also has male and female collections, and even accessories and gifts that are sustainable and long-lasting, in keeping with their mantra “Wear me, love me, mend me, pass me on”.  

January may be behind us, but it’s not too late to add a new resolution to your pack. Think for the planet. Think sustainable fashion. Think ethically. Think now.
