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.
