YOUR SUSTAINABLE OUTFIT

A pioneer within the Fair Trade industry, People Tree exclusively manufactures its threads from environmentally-friendly fabrics. So, for an on-trend top half that’s been made in a moral way, opt for this checked shirt made from 100% organic cotton. To layer up, go for a black crew-neck sweater from Cheap Monday — the label's FW17 line is made from recycled and organic cotton, which has 46% less climate impact than regular cotton.
Keep being kind to the planet and choose a pair of post-consumer waste recycled skinny jeans from the label to go on your bottom half. Its denim range also makes use of organic cotton that requires 71% less water compared to standard denim production.
As for accessories, shoes and bags are particularly troublesome for the planet-concerned, because they’re often constructed from leather. Save the animals and go for a functional backpack from Matt & Nat constructed from vegan leather, and team with a pair of Converse All Star Hi sneakers that are predominantly made of canvas. Sustainable dressing, done.
