It’s not just eco-friendly anymore – it’s eco-fashion! According to the Sustainable Technology Education Project, eco-fashion is about making clothes that take into account the environment, the health of consumers and the working conditions of people in the fashion industry.
Here at Bag The Box, we’re all about re-using school supplies or shopping second-hand. But if you do buy new, consider purchasing from companies that have the environment at heart. Take OAT Shoes for example. According to this Treehugger article, the company conquered its quest for a sustainable sneaker – these kicks are made entirely from biodegradable materials. So when you’re done with them, you can even compost them!
Sustainability is a term used for more than “going green” – it’s about being socially conscious and ethical. With this in mind, sustainable clothing is an increasing trend. In fact, it’s all about sustainable style these days, even when it comes to accessories. You never know, a piece of sustainable jewelry just may be the ticket as you’re shopping for that perfect gift or stocking stuffer this holiday.
For a comprehensive list of eco-style options, we think this eco fashion guide is pretty cool, too. Whether you’re a green fashionista, or you’re searching for a new back-to-school wardrobe or accessories, there are unique eco-friendly and guilt-free picks for everyone these days.
