Does your wardrobe have a conscious?
It can now!!
We love that our favorite local boutiques are embracing eco friendly brands. One of our favorite online retailers, Largo Drive makes it easy to find eco friendly pieces and brands with their Eco Shop. Supporting local has always been our first mission at STYLE REPORT, and when we see local supporting eco friendly practices we take note.
Why have so many brands/stores added eco friendly pieces and collections to their seasonal lineup? The environment! More than a decade of fast fashion, ever changing trends, and consumers’ lust for inexpensive clothing has contributed to clothing being one of the largest pollutants on the planet. Eco-conscious brands/stores have began taking note and making changes. Giving the consumer more conscientious style.
What makes a brand or a clothing item eco-friendly? From organic cotton and linen to recycled man made, eco friendly textiles the first step to an eco friendly garment is the raw materials. From there it is fair wages, the brand being aware and responsible for the process from start to finish.
We, the consumer, are responsible for what we purchase. Making sure to buy/invest in pieces that can be infinitely styled and worn for years is also an important component to being an eco friendly consumer.
Mara Hoffman has a simple, honest approach; design and manufacture garments with greater care and to reduce their impact, generate awareness, and ask their customers to join them in taking action and holding them accountable.
