It wasn’t until I looked in my own closet and realized I own a lot of junky cloths that I started to think about how much money I spend on replacing my cheap cloths, only to toss them out again or donate the possible wearable garments to a thrift store. I’m not going to lie, I’m often lured in to stores like Forever 21, H&M and mall shops that produce cloths at such high volumes over seas so they can drive prices down and increase their own profits resulting in tones of waist.
As I look into this idea of sustainable clothing I’m finding there’s a whole huge world of people, innovators, companies and shops that are designing clothing with careful consideration of our social responsibility. They desire to create cloths not based on trends but social, moral business pratices and creating as little waist and environmental impact as possible, right down to the farmer that grows the flax for that linen dress.
For now I wanted to just share with you guys a few of my exciting finds, companies that are taking socially responsible garments to the market place. Click on their "About Us" links and read up about some of the cool things their doing to produce their beautiful pieces.
