Reasons to Consider Eco-Friendly Fashion

Eco Chic Fashion

Some call it eco-friendly fashion, others say it is veganism. Despite the difference in name, the idea behind these terms is to adopt a nature-friendly lifestyle. This lifestyle is inspired by the desire to prevent killing or harming of other living things for our comfort and pleasure. It’s also inspired by the idea of creating fashion in a way that is ethical and sustainable.

Many fashionistas have taken up with this issue because they believe that fur, leather skirts, crocodile skin bags and mink coats come at a significant price. They believe these luxury fashion staples haven taken a toll on the environment.

Here are a few reasons to consider incorporating eco-friendly fashion into your wardrobe:

  • Recyclable and organic fabrics reduce the amount of waste and contaminants being disposed into the oceans and the environment at large.
  • Fewer chemicals and other toxic substances are being thrown into the Earth. Organic cotton, bamboo, and hemp do not require many chemicals.
  • Eco-friendly clothing ensures fair trade and healthy working conditions. So you can wear that gorgeous dress without feeling the guilt of indulging in someone’s pained laborious efforts.
  • Adopting cruelty-free wardrobe will save the animals from torturous procedures.

Here are just a few of the remarkable eco-friendly brands that many of us love:

H&M
Although they are not completely an eco-friendly brand, H&M does have a “Conscious” collection. The company has made a commitment to creating a better fashion future.

“At H&M, we have set ourselves the challenge of ultimately making fashion sustainable and sustainability fashionable. We want to help people express their personality and feel proud of what they wear. I’m very excited to see the progress we’ve made so far and how this will help us to make you an even better offer – and create a more sustainable fashion future”, says Karl-Johan Persson, CEO.
