We are so excited to share with you our first ever Sustainable Sunday post! Once a month we will be sharing brands that we're really passionate about. Eco fashion brands that are using ethical practices, vegan and organic materials and are mindful of their ecological foot print on this wonderful earth. We'll be featuring pioneers of sustainable fashion as well as exciting small brands.
There are so many people and animals that are exploited all over the world in the fast fashion industry. Through our Sustainable Sunday project we will be sharing with you why its so important to support eco fashion companies that put environment and social responsibility at the centre of their mission.
Dress by People Tree: People Tree are pioneers in ethical and environmentally sustainable fashion. We especially love that you can see exactly where and how the products are made on their website. This dress is made by Assisi Garments in India, a social enterprise that provides training and employment for deaf, mute and economically disadvantaged women. It's made with organic cotton; meaning no harsh chemicals or pesticides are used in the growth and production of the material. HOW FREAKING COOL!!
