Sustainable Clothing on Amazon

by | Mar 20, 2018 | Sustainable Fashion

Sustainable clothing doesn’t have to be crazy expensive and it also doesn’t have to be inaccessible. If you’re a Amazon shopper like me, then you’ll be happy to know there are numerous environmentally responsible brands available on Amazon! Whether you are looking for basics, causal wear, active wear, or even baby clothing you’ll find a brand that creates what you are looking for. See below for a list of sustainable clothing brands (even a vegan shoe company), and at the bottom of this page I list four organic baby clothing options.

Please choose bamboo clothing with caution. I read this interesting ARTICLE on the eco-friendliness of bamboo. Many companies will boast about their use of bamboo as an environmentally friendly option but that doesn’t mean it’s sourced and manufactured responsibly. Keep this in mind when you are shopping for clothing items.
