With a new era for seeking green and environmentally friendly items, eco- friendly and sustainable clothing are becoming more and more popular everyday!
Sustainable clothing entails that the resources used in creating a garment has not been negatively affecting the earth’s environment to a drastic extent. For example, the sexy skirt as seen below by H&M’s new sustainable Conscious Collection line, was made from organic hemp and silk fabrics.
Each year, millions and millions of clothes get tossed in a landfill without a second glance, but that’s not the worst part. The sad thing about tossing your clothes, is that most of the time, those fabrics are still usable. So even if you’ve outgrown some of your pants or the style is no longer in season, take your old clothes to a donation center such as Goodwill or see if your town has a Buffalo Exchange. Thrift stores similar to Buffalo Exchange will even pay you for your old clothing.
Being fashionable, yet eco-friendly at the same time, was once a challenge due to lack of resources or financial related reasons. But now, thanks to H&M and several other clothing stores, being both trendy and stylish is gradually becoming more eco-friendly and less hazardous to the environment.
Check out some eco-friendly stores below:
Conscious Collection (in select H&M stores)
