Welcome to my Conscious Clothing Shopping page! I’d love for you to meet some of my FAVORITE responsibly made, transparent manufacturing, or sustainable shopping brands and retailers. This is a place where you can feel good about shopping (for real)! I linked my blog posts in parentheses next to the brand/retailer if I’ve mentioned them before.
// Luxury Sustainable //
Obviously, this is my favorite section which is why it is listed first! LOL! I love to find luxury good at non-luxury prices. Some items (like handbags) retain their value, but you can still get it at a discounted price. I have purchased from The Real Real and Luxury Garage Sale online. I have some other friends who have used Fashionphile and Vestaire.
LOCAL BOUTIQUES //
// Responsibly Made //
These brands are radically transparent, and the pieces are ethically made. Within the last five years, we have so many options which are also affordable! It’s fantastic and so exciting that the fashion industry is headed in this direction.
// Fashion for Good //
God bless these brands who are able to give for their cause! It’s amazing that they can align their brand with such positive missions.
PURPOSE Jewelry – I have to point out that 100% (ONE HUNDRED) of proceeds go back to go to International Sanctuary benefiting girls and women escaping human trafficking to assist women rescued with medical and dental care, education, counseling, loans, and employment. Wow right?!
TOMS – We all know One for One®. I LOVE how Blake Mycoskie started something so positive that spread throughout the world.
CABI – W.E. are CABI is a program that benefits other women entrepreneurs around the globe. For every new CABI stylist, they donate a small business loan in her name to a woman entrepreneur in a developing country. The beauty of that is the dignity. The person receiving the loan is paying it back, and it’s not given as charity. So, she is building something for herself and her family.
NORDSTROM – I love it when mass retailers do something to give back. Nordstrom carries lines that do just and here’s a little about each one.
- S’well donates a portion of the proceeds from the sale of each bottle to UNICEF to help provide clean drinking water to children around the world.
- As part of State’s Give.Back.Pack. Program, for each Kane sold, they’ll hand-deliver a backpack—full of essential tools for success—to an American child in need. Buy one, give one.
- When you buy Treasure & Bond, Nordstrom will donate 2.5% of net sales (that’s 5% of net profits) to organizations that work to empower youth i.e. YWCA.
- For every doll purchased, cuddle + kind will donate 10 meals to children in need in the USA and around the world through the following giving-partner organizations: World Food Program USA, Children’s Hunger Fund, Breakfast Club of Canada and WE Charity School Nutrition Program.
If you know of a brand or retailer that should be listed here, then please let me know! Happy Shopping Y’all!
