Need to update your summer wardrobe?
Why not consider investing in high quality products from ethical brands?
I’ve put together a list of companies selling clothing which is stylish and sustainable… win, win.
If you want soft, pretty linens and bright summer colours, head to Sancho’s. Based in my home town of Exeter, the company have a really unique, relaxing vibe and best of all they sell ethically sourced products. These light, cropped trousers are perfect for a beach day. Or, for a more formal occasion, this organic summer dress can be dressed up with heels.
This ZERO WASTE company (yup, you read that correctly) has a different take on manufacturing fashion (which you can read about here). This pale pink shirt dress is my favourite item of theirs, perfect for a hot day! They also sell jewelry and accessories, which make perfect ethical gifts for loved ones.
There is a bit of a shortage in sustainable gym clothes, so Threads for thought fill that gap in the market with their great range of active wear. This floral sports bra is not only cute, made with an actual body in mind but also is created from recycled polyester.
Another great UK company, Antiform is based in Bristol. They have a whole range of funky leggings to keep you comfy this summer. This lotus design is my favourite! plus you get 10% off your first order, even better!
If you’ve been on social media for five minutes chances are you’ll have scrolled past a pair of stylish Lucy and Yak dungarees. Everyone seems to be opting for them, and I can see why. Not only are their comfy, come in a range of colours, but are ethically sourced and organic. Ideal. These mustard cuties are my absolute favourite!
Going on some adventures this summer? If you need some outdoor clothes from an ethical company, check out Howies. Durable, fashionable and sustainable, what’s not to love? This light, breathable rain jacket might be a good investment this summer, because let’s face it this is Britain..!
If you’re looking for a more natural approach to fashion, Thought Clothing is a good place to visit. They use naturally grown bamboo, cotton, wool and hemp. Not only are their materials ethical but also their treatment of their staff and the people who make their clothes. Their sustainable sock range are adorable! They have a great sale, in their final reductions section there’s even up to 50%. If you’re having a treat-yo-self day and decide to splash out, there’s free UK delivery over £60.
Have you bought from any of these shops? I’d love to hear what ethical purchases you’ve made this summer!
