Do you remember my Helm Fashion Agency high tea post? I had a ball on a boat on Sydney Harbour talking to other influencers and Fashion Revolution AUS/NZ about Sustainable Fashion. Well in an effort to do my bit for the environment I have been busy researching some great sustainable labels to share with you.
I have been interested in buying classic quality pieces for a while. I often buy things that I know will last me a lifetime like my Burberry leather moto jacket. You've seen it in a lot of posts like (link). However, I must admit, before the high tea I wasn't interested in Eco labels because I felt that they didn't produce pieces that I wanted to wear. You know that age old fallacy? That Eco products are not as cool as others? Do you think the same thing?
I have really sensitive skin so I buy more natural products like sorbelene moisturiser and Alchemy shampoo and conditioner. So why is it that I couldn't wrap my head around more environmentally friendly fashion? Maybe because I hadn't discovered enough Eco labels with cool products!
During this week I have discovered that bamboo fabrics use less water than cotton to product AND that being aware and changing a few things about the way we think about our clothes will make a difference. It's enough for me to start supporting Eco labels and start thinking about my purchases even more - which is great because I really can't give up my leather shoes or jackets. There is nothing quite like them.
So my first lovely sustainable item is this Prymal Hat from Sunday Tracker Boutique. Sustainable Fashion is all about supporting the designers, the local economy and the planet into the future. Prymal is fully committed to working directly with local artisans, paying them appropriate wages for their hard work and making sure they have safe working conditions.
