3 fashion brands making a difference

Let’s be honest, one of the world’s most pressing concerns right now includes climate change. We’ve all seen it, experienced it, and it has impacted almost all of our lives. With fashion being a significant contributor to environmental pollution, the industry finds itself at a critical crossroad. It is no longer sufficient to merely be glamorous; fashion must now also embody responsibility for our planet. 

Sustainability in fashion involves a lot of different parts. While the material itself matters, so does how the raw material gets sourced, how the product is produced, who works on it, how far it travels to reach you, and many more. So it’s no surprise if consumers get confused to find the best eco-friendly brands to invest in that hit all (or most) of the sustainability checkpoints. This is where The Design Collective comes in.
