Over the past year, sustainability has become a hot topic, and rightly so. From Meghan Markle shining a light on her favourite eco-friendly products, to actors taking a stand on the red carpet, and over 150 brands signing the G7 Fashion Pact in a bid to make the industry more sustainable, everyone has been trying to figure out ways to reduce their environmental impact and educate themselves — me included.

But, as it turns out, finding labels that offer pieces that I like and that are actively trying to find solutions to be more sustainable has actually proved to be quite challenging. Luckily, scrolling through my Instagram feed and paying closer attention to what everyone has been wearing has helped me find a few gems.
While it's important to note that everyone still has a lot of work to do to be 100 percent sustainable, the following companies have been taking steps in the right direction. So, from labels that use traditional techniques and natural fabrics, to ones that support charities and give back to communities, read on for nine street style-approved brands that will help you look good and do good.
