More and more lately, ethical fashion is becoming a buzzy conversation topic, and it’s about ~dayum~ time! Anyone acquainted with the retail industry or, you know, who just really likes to shop, probably has a vague understanding of why eco-chic and sustainable fashion are so important.
For starters, green-minded use natural and breathable fabrics that are good for your skin. They also have a smaller carbon footprint, and reduce the fashion industry’s pollution impact (the likes of which we haven’t even fully grasped). Plus, these garments tend to be quality crafted, meaning you’ll get way more wear for your buck.
