For Earth Day this year, some of your favorite fashion brands are celebrating Mother Earth with initiatives that work to protect the planet and its resources. In the continual push toward a more sustainable fashion future, there are a few eco-friendly ways brands are slowing down the fast-paced industry and setting the precedent for sustainable product production. Whether it’s with recycled packaging, made-to-order shipments, the use of natural and recycled materials, or sustainable manufacturing, these solutions are all critical for keeping the planet healthy for years to come. And, shopping these planet-friendly products is a win-win — you get to add something you love to your collection without negatively impacting the planet.
Take for instance, Rebecca Minkoff, who introduced new made-to-order items in the brand’s RM Green Collection today. The new installment features inclusive sizing and employs technology that minimizes waste and excess water usage. Then there’s quirky jewelry label Frasier Sterling, which launched 100% recycled packaging to decrease the use of single-use plastics. Plus, the new packaging is recyclable and it also makes for a great and safe way to store your jewelry.
And that’s just the beginning. Ahead, find seven brands making moves for Earth Day ... and the rest of the year for that matter.
