Vegan & Sustainable Clothing
Attention! This list is constantly updated and it features only alternative and edgy fashion shops!
Premise: most of the brands listed are completely animal free, but I might list some that only have specific lines (like H&M with his Conscious line). I list everything in the same place because I am interested in both issues: animals and planet. My dream is a cruelty-free brand: no cruelty towards animals, the planet or people. I can’t be aware of how vegan brands behave regarding pollution or work exploitation though. I’m doing the best I can with this list!
Little intro to my humble opinion: I don’t buy fur, silk, wool or leather in normal shops, but I might purchase one of these things if second hand/used/vintage. Why is it so? Because buying second hand is always a good idea, and it is sustainable. We have a lot of stuff on this planet, so we might as well use it without producing new one.p.s.: still haven’t bought leather in years because I hate the smell! Let alone fur.
We can make a shift. We can start making things different together. We can try. If each and everyone of us makes a tiny little change in our habits, it’s a huge thing for the whole world.
And yes, I think we need yet another cruelty-free clothing list, because not all sustainable clothing has to be ugly, green, floral or generally aesthetically unappealing. I’m all in for sustainable alternative avant-garde edgy clothing. Yes, we can do it!
