Earth Day Is Every Day, So Adopt These 9 Sustainable Fashion Practices Now
We are constantly doing research on fashion brands that keep up with sustainable practices and minimize waste when creating clothing — it's literally a part of our job. Personally, I'm a big fan of swimwear, so I've committed to spending my dollar on labels like Ookioh (even Aerie's new sustainable line that's made from plastic water bottles is a great example). I've been doing this for years, but my efforts should extend to my entire closet, and, like a lot of people in the fashion industry, I'm trying to get there. If you are fortunate enough to spend your money on something stylish and affordable that was made consciously, why wouldn't you?
Fashion editors, stylists, and influencers around the world are also collecting vintage outfits and accessories more and more. Thrifting sort of surfaced as a Kardashian-Jenner "trend," if you will, in 2019 (the famous family sources pieces from What Goes Around Comes Around often). But, as always, the Kardashian-Jenners were onto something. Shopping from the archives is truly a solid way to preserve history, and it does also allow you to build a one-of-a-kind wardrobe that sparks nostalgia.
I couldn't help but wonder if I was missing anything — what are other little tips and tricks my peers are practicing when it comes to fashion? Are there any great brands I still don't know about that promote ethical shopping methods? I reached out to some fellow editors who, like me, have been doing their fair share of research too. Scroll through to read nine great quotes on sustainable fashion that should inspire you to rethink your perspective on clothing for good.
