Who says you can’t be eco-conscious and a fashionista at the same time? You can be stylish without supporting the $2.4 trillion dollar unethical fashion industry. For the fashion-lover in your life, treat them to something green this holiday season. Each year, thousands of new ethical brands join the market. There are more options than ever for eco-friendly gifts. If you’re not sure where to start, keep reading.
Here are five of the trendiest eco-friendly gifts for the fashionista in your life.
1. Vegan Leather Backpack
Backpacks aren’t just for toting around your books and supplies. They’re fashion statements that look cool with trendy athleisure outfits.
But, there’s nothing cool about genuine leather backpacks. Instead, opt for a vegan leather backpack. And, make sure you find a brand that doesn’t use PVC or PC in the production. These materials are not sustainable. Besides a vegan backpack, consider reusable totes. Everyone needs a couple of good, eco-friendly totes to take grocery shopping. Shop now for totes that they can use all winter long.
2. Gung Ho Sweater
Every fashionista needs a statement sweater to wear during the holidays. Paired with black denim and eco-friendly loafers, this is a look for the books.
Gung Ho has a stunning collection of sustainable statement jumpers that every girl would die for. The brand is conscious of pesticides used in material sourcing as well as water consumption in garment production. The Puffin Lifesaver Jumper is one of their best sellers. It features a bright orange lifesaver amidst a light pink puffin and hot pink rope.
3. Anatoli Co Robe
Before your fashionista picks her outfit for the day, she still needs to be stylish. That’s why a classic bathrobe is a perfect gift for her. Make it an eco-friendly robe and your gift is a double whammy. Anatoli Co makes some of the most luxurious, comfortable, and stylish bathrobes. They make them for men and women, in short and long lengths.
4. 100% Pure Makeup
Being trendy doesn’t just apply to your clothes. A true fashionista also cares about her makeup looking on point, too. Unfortunately, most of the makeup brands on the market use dangerous chemicals in an unethical production process. But, 100% Pure makeup is different. Their products never include toxic ingredients and are never tested on animals. Consider gifting her with the Fruit Pigmented Lengthening Mascara.
5. Allbirds Sneakers
These days, you don’t need to wear heels or stilettos to be fashionable. It’s all about sneakers and casual-athletic wear. Your fashion-loving giftee would die for a pair of sustainable sneakers from Allbirds. These sneakers are comfortable, durable, and look amazing. Each pair is made from ethically sourced merino wool. As well as recycled plastic and cardboard.
