5 Great Sustainable & Affordable Clothing Brands You Need To Get Your Hands on ASAP

In honor of Earth Day, Her Campus Lasell is committed to living sustainably not just for the one day, but every day (because the Earth is literally dying).  Where do you even begin?  This week we will be breaking down how to live sustainably in every aspect of life--  style, beauty, college life, and yes even in your relationships. So sit back, relax, and get ready to make the switch to eco-friendly. 

Personally, I am very passionate about the issue of fast fashion. After graduation, I plan on working for the fashion industry and the amount of pollution that comes from it is scary. It can sometimes be hard to focus on living more eco-friendly when you're on a college budget, but there are many options out there that really won't break the bank. Here are five of the best sustainable, but affordable, clothing brands that can be shopped online and delivered right to your door!

This is an ethically made eco-friendly men’s and women’s apparel store. They also have shoes and accessories. For those of you who turn basics into boldness, Everlane is right up your alley. Their basics come with a twist, whether it’s a little flair in an A-line dress or tees in stunning colors. Their price range for these basics is typically $25-$50.
