In the past, if you wanted to be fashionable, you probably couldn’t be eco-friendly, and if you wanted to be eco-friendly, you probably couldn’t be fashionable – the two things just didn’t go together, and you had to choose one or the other. 

Luckily, things have changed – a lot. Today, you can be both fashionable and eco-friendly, and although you’ll have to think about things before you buy anything, and it’s still not as simple to do as hopefully it will be one day, things have definitely changed for the better. With that in mind,

keep reading to find out how you can be fashionable and eco-friendly and truly have the best of both worlds:

1. Choose Sustainable Brands 

One of the best things you can do when it comes to being fashionable and eco-friendly is to make sure that whatever you buy, it comes from a sustainable fashion brand that works hard to protect the planet. If you can pick a good jeans manufacturer such as Trends, for example, you can be sure that you’re getting exactly what you need and want and you’re not causing damage to the planet when you do it – it can’t get better than that.

Things to look out for when you’re choosing a good brand or manufacturer include companies that put recycling first, that use organic materials, that use ethical labor practices, and that work hard at reducing waste, among other things. If you spend some time researching the different brands, that will save you time in the future because you’ll already know precisely who to buy from when you want great clothes that don’t harm the planet. 

2. Choose Quality Over Quantity 

Something else you can do that’s going to definitely help you be more fashionable but also more eco-friendly is to choose quality over quantity when it comes to buying clothes. In other words, you can have a capsule wardrobe that consists of a few lovely, perhaps more expensive pieces that can be mixed and matched and worn multiple times in different ways.

The great thing about this is that after the initial investment, you won’t be spending loads of money on clothing, and because you’re buying quality items, they’ll last for ages, so that’s even more money saved. You’ll be buying less and throwing less away, but you’ll always have a great selection of clothing in your closet, and you’ll always be in style. 

3. Buy Second Hand

Buying new clothes isn’t always a good option – buying from eco-friendly businesses is great, but not all brands are eco-friendly, and that can be a problem if there’s something specific you want. That’s why it can often be a good idea to buy second hand items from thrift stores and websites that specialize in what’s known as ‘pre-loved’ clothing.

When you buy second-hand items, you’ll be saving those clothes from going to landfill, plus you’ll be sending a message to the fashion industry about waste and how much they’re generating. You’ll save money too, and there are some great bargains to be had when you set enough time aside to search for them, so why not try it out to be fashionable and eco-friendly?
