Threads of the Day
I wanted to switch up the Threads of the Day for today and rather than putting an outfit together and showing you how it can be styled, I've put together a collection from Amazon that are part of Climate Pledge Friendly movement.
The biggest thing I've noticed while enterting the world of sustainable clothing is how expensive they tend to be. This is understandable considering all of the hoops these brands are jumping through just to make a difference and set an example for other companies, but this is why young people, like myself, turn to options that aren't always sustainable.
While I do highly recommend thrifting, there are still some items that I prefer to buy new. Not to mention you can search for a year until you find that one piece you've been looking for. There are very clear benefits and downsides to the approach of shopping second hand, and that's where I do feel online shopping comes in handy.
This is why I'm trying to share products that I truly love and believe in, while making it an easy process to shop for good products for those of you that follow along.
Some of you may be asking, "aren't there better sustainable products than on Amazon?" And the short answer is yes. You can find plenty of other sustainable brands that don't sell their items through Amazon, but why wouldn't we want to promote one of the biggest companies on this planet to do better? To provide sustainable options. To better their packaging. To encourage sustainability.
I understand this is just fixing the surface level of many problems, but if I, as one person, can also encourage you to encourage big companies little by little to be better, that's what I'll do.
Last thing I want to say before I go is that these products I have linked above are all fairly affordable when it comes to sustainable clothes. And in my opinion, they are a lot more fashionable than most of your sustainable brands too. Not to say there isn't a time and place for your Tshirts made out of recycled materials, but we do need more nice attire made from better materials too.
