These brands have a secret about being eco-friendly

It's safe to say that most of us don't think twice when it comes to what really goes into the clothing we spend money on and clothe our bodies with.

Now that sus­tain­able fash­ion is grad­u­al­ly on the rise, and soci­ety is try­ing to find ways to reduce cli­mate change, we found that even the most high street brands are slow­ly but sure­ly mak­ing the move. We’ve put togeth­er a list of on and off the radar brands that are worth get­ting to know a lit­tle bit bet­ter as their val­ues are more than you think…

Patagonia

As a child we thought Patag­o­nia was the lamest thing around, since recent this out­er­wear brand has made a rather cool come­back. Branch­ing out from tar­get­ing nature lovers and out­door enthu­si­asts the Cal­i­for­nia born brand is feel­ing fresh. Being cool isn’t exact­ly some­thing they’re look­ing for, since estab­lished in 1973, their main tar­get was and still to this day is to cre­ate a strong sus­tain­able mes­sage, and lucky for them they have man­aged to do exact­ly that. From shoes, to sleep­ing bags and your favorite wind­break­er you’ll find that not only will their prod­uct last you a life time but the mate­ri­als such as hemp, organ­ic cot­ton, recy­cled nylon, recy­cled poly­ester and many more have come a far way to become the most eth­i­cal and envi­ron­men­tal friend­ly repro­duc­tion in fashion.

Folk Days

Berlin is home to one of our most beloved and fair trade brands- Folk Days. It’s not every­day that you find design­ers that trav­el to the source of where they gath­er their mate­ri­als used in their col­lec­tions, nonethe­less with Folk Days it’s part of what they stand for. Since 2013 when founder Lisa Jaspers cre­at­ed the brand she has trav­eled to over ten coun­tries to find the right peo­ple and crafts men who share the same belief. Now three years lat­er Jaspers owns her very own store in the heart of Berlin’s live­ly Kreuzberg dis­trict hold­ing a range of sus­tain­able acces­sories and min­i­mal gar­ments. Still strong­ly hold­ing onto their eter­nal promise: a life that is inspired by style as well as sustainability.

Nude by Nature

Off the body and onto the face, a mar­ket that has an even larg­er gap than with cloth­ing- cos­met­ics. The cos­met­ic indus­try is a tough one when it comes to cru­el­ty free and organ­ic ingre­di­ents, Aus­tralian mak­ers of Nude by Nature on the oth­er hand, seem to think differently.

Stay­ing far away from the tra­di­tion­al ele­ments such as Talc, Sil­i­con, Phtha­lates and Sul­phates that we seem to have no prob­lem rub­bing onto our faces even though they are high­ly chem­i­cal. Nude by Nature takes a dif­fer­ent approach onto their line of prod­ucts using only nat­ur­al addi­tives to cre­ate a com­plete nat­ur­al and effort­less look.

Veja

Now this is one brand that we have all over our radars, the Brazil­ian shoe mak­ers of Veja who strong­ly stand for qual­i­ty, sus­tain­abil­i­ty, sup­port in cli­mate change and of course style. Every detail of what goes into a pair of shoes has a sto­ry behind it, their mes­sage envi­ron­men­tal pro­tec­tion is very clear through the way they mar­ket them­selves as a brand. Veja buys cot­ton from over 300 fam­i­lies who live from organ­ic farm­ing in South Amer­i­ca as well as sup­port­ing cow farms of fair trade leather. The most impor­tant mate­r­i­al used is the rub­ber used to pro­duce the soles of the shoes, a very spe­cif­ic type of rub­ber found in the Ama­zon which is the only place in the entire world where rub­ber trees grow wild. How’s that for thought.
