Did you know that fashion can be sustainable too?
There are much more to do apart from using paper straws and bags in order to protect our environment and planet. Sustainable fashion produces clothing under not only legal but ethical procedures, that are friendly to the environment and human health.
What does sustainable fashion suggest? ‘’Green Fabric’’. The eco-friendly fabrics are made from bio cotton, bamboo, corn, soya, linen, hemp, nettle, conventional silk, and wool.
Using sustainable fashion, we protect our planet and by extension all of us. With our slow fashion philosophy and ethical partners, we advocate for buying higher quality clothes that will last longer and show respect to the people, animals, and the planet.
On the contrary, fast fashion, just like fast food, may be cheaper, but it’s bad for our bodies, planet and the people producing them.
