April 22, 2016, marks Earth Day, the day we celebrate our beautiful home — Mother Earth! It’s time to give back and show our love for nature by supporting and wearing eco-friendly clothing lines. Here are organic clothes to celebrate Earth Day in.
Organic Clothing to Celebrate Earth Day In
More and more clothing lines are taking the eco-friendly route when it comes to designing clothes. Searching for organic textiles and fabrics used to be impossible, but has now become as easy as shopping for a plain white tee. Thanks to technology, more brands are looking for and incorporating humanely-sourced materials to use.
This upcoming Earth Day, let’s celebrate the sustainability of our earth by supporting and wearing organic clothing. Need ideas? Here they are:
1. Organic Tees
Don’t we love plain ol’ tees? Heck yes, and we love them even more when they’re made of organic cotton. H&M Conscious is a new line that highlights the use of organic materials in their clothes.
2. Wood & Leather Cuffs
Wonder Woman may have those unbreakable cuffs, but these from Raven and Lily are just as badass. The Neha Wood and Leather Cuff is made from hand-carved wood and locally-sourced leather that are all hand-cut to make different designs. Beautiful, isn’t it?
3. Vegan Leather Pouch
Vegan isn’t just a way of eating, it’s a way of living! More companies are opting for vegan leather instead of inhumanely-sourced leather to make eco-friendly wallets, clutches and purses!
4. J. Crew Bee Tees
While these cute J. Crew Bee Tees aren’t exactly made from organic materials, we included them in this list because of the message they send. J. Crew launched the Save the Bees campaign to aid The Xerxes Society, a non-profit organization that protects and conserves the lives of bees and other types of insects.
5. Organic Dresses
The Faherty Brand is proud to say that their dresses are made from woven organic cotton sourced all the way from Northern India. But that’s not the end of the story, the fabric mill Faherty uses to weave the cotton is powered with natural energy and has its own eco-friendly filtration system.
6. G-Star Raw Denim
Ever heard of Bionic Yarn? Pharrell Williams worked together with G-Star Raw, The Vortex Project and Parley for the Oceans to create this eco-friendly fabric. Bionic yarn is made from recycled plastic bottles obtained in the ocean. So if you plan on buying denim jeans soon, go for G-Star Raw Denim instead.
7. Brass Necklace
Most metal jewelry is eco-friendly, but the Soko Brass Necklace is extra eco-friendly. The necklace itself is made from reclaimed metal cast from car engines. Pretty cool, right?
8. Wooden Sunglasses
Ditch the plastic frames and go for something more eco-friendly like wood. Woodzee is a company that sells sunglasses made from recycled, biodegradable and natural materials. Moreover, when you buy a pair from Woodzee, they plant a tree in return. Why wear anything else?
9. Striped Dress
Amour Vert has exactly what you need when it comes to eco-fashion because their zero-waste design philosophy only uses sustainable fibers to make their clothes. As with Woodzee, every item you purchase at Amour Vert means a tree planted in return.
10. Nikki Reed Bag
Nikki Reed and Freedom of Animals worked together to design this bag. While the clothes are beyond cute, the real attention-grabber comes from the materials used: organic cotton, plastic water bottle lining, zippers from recycled metals, and organic twill tape.
Now you’re ready to celebrate Earth Day in style!
