DIY _ Sustainable Fashion

Stumped on how to get your sustainable fashion kickstarted? Look no further!

Tip - Use what you already have in your closet:

We love using the old favorites in our closet as the building blocks for our ethical wardrobe! What's next? Adding in new staple pieces as you go!

Skirt

Start with an old classic that allows for endless style possibilities.

This classic skirt has been in my closet for over 10 years! I wasn't always into sustainable fashion but I lucked out when I made this purchase buying a well made piece that has and will last for decades.   Now when I am looking to buy classic pieces (pencil skirts, black heals, leather jackets, etc.) I look for items that are ethically made, well made, and truly speak to my sense of style, so that I can be confident I will continue to wear them in the future.

Shoes

Your favorite pair of shoes are the perfect addition to your sustainable outfit!

These shoes have been a part of my collection for 5 years.  Another classic piece that fits my style and was made well. I love buying items to last!

Top

Tip - Add a top to give a pop! No favorites to use here? Find a new piece for your collection!

This top is made in America, AND bought locally at one of our downtown boutiques!
 

Jacket

Final touches = your favorite go-to jacket. Old or new, this piece is sure to be worn again and again.

This jacket? Thrifted! Repurposing clothes is one of our favorite things to do! Visit a thrift shop, and add a vintage piece to your sustainable collection.

Our Favorite Giveback, Ethical, Small Shop Baby Brands
Our Favorite Giveback, Ethical, Small Shop Baby Brands

by Emily Betzler July 14, 2019

 As you know, we are in full-on BABY mode over here (and loving every minute of it)!

It seems like the baby game has changed quite a bit since our last baby- there are so many new ethical, small shop, sustainable and giveback brands and products that we've begun to fall in love with! While we still turn to 2nd hand/hand-me-down items as our first resort for finding items for our kids - (it is most economical and sustainable), it has been encouraging and fun to see the myriad of new options! We've loved trying out and supporting some of these brands as we shop with an impact, and are excited to share our recommendations with you! 

Here are our favorite ethical, small shop, sustainable giveback baby brands - and the products we have been using and loving in our everyday life!
