When shopping for new clothes at the start of each new season it is easy to shop at brands that are popular or cheap, but those aren’t always the best options. The fashion industry has a negative impact on the environment due to things such as large carbon emissions, drying up water sources, and polluting the ocean with plastic. We can do our part in helping our environment by not participating in buying from brands who produce fast fashion. Check out these sustainable clothing brands to do your part in saving our planet.


NAK-D is a European brand that has a sustainable collection with over 700 products. The brand also offers climate-friendly shipping for all customers at no additional cost. The sustainable collection has a great selection of sweaters and pants that would be a great addition to your closet this fall!


Reformation hasn’t been around for too long but it has gained quite a following. Celebrities such as Kaia Gerber, Hailey Beiber, and Kendall Jenner are fans of the brand. They design minimalist feminine pieces. Reformation also carries one of a kind vintage pieces that can be found online or at their Los Angeles location.
