Fashion, World Change
My Ethical Fashion Purchase Of The MonthFeb 16, 2019
If you’ve been a VF blog reader for awhile now, you know I’m an avid thrift store shopper.
That said, I also believe in supporting different ethical fashion brands by purchasing new items when I can.
Here are a few of the things I look for when working with a brand or giving them my business:
- family/locally owned
- environmental reform
- made in the usa
- year-round essentials
- reduce the environmental impact of harmful substances
- versatile wardrobe
- timeless silhouette
- fair wages for workers
- body positive
- responsible use of resources
- ethically crafted
- recyclable packaging
- take action
- sustainable living
- empowering other women
- give back to those in need
- leave the world a better place
- healthier planet
- future focused
- using business as a force for good
Shopping ethically and mindfully is important to me, and I know you feel the same.
That’s why I love this beautiful cropped jean jacket by Reformation. It has great-sized pockets, is reasonably priced, sits at the perfect length, and the material it’s made from helps the planet.
Here are the stats:
- 31 pounds of carbon dioxide savings
- 1460 gallons of water savings
- 1.8 pounds of waste savings
I’m definitely taking this wardrobe staple on my upcoming babymoon to the Sedona mountains! If you’re looking for a medium weight jacket that will last, you can find my jacket in a beautiful vintage wash here.
Thank you for stopping by. 🙂
