Even if you don’t consider yourself an environmentalist, the very least any of us fashion lovers can do is help reduce the overall waste that goes into apparel disposal every year. Reports show that Americans dispose of 14 million tons of clothing each year. That is 80 pounds per person.This guide is for the fashionista who is looking to make small steps toward better eco-decisions when it comes to fashion purchases. If you have the urge to buy something, we suggest choosing a line that uses organic materials like cotton or silk, such as Patagonia and H&M.Opt for brands that source from local artisans through ethical means such as Brother Vellies. Choose shoes and bags that use cruelty-free materials like vegan leather.You can also buy from brands that directly contribute a portion of their sales to a green initiative or charitable cause.If our shopping habits don’t change, the very place we call home may not be the same home for future generations to enjoy. Think smart. Choose wisely.

To us, green means products are made using natural, non-toxic plant or animal-based ingredients that are safer for us and that don’t negatively impact the environment or our natural resources when they’re made or when they’re being used.
