Clean Oceans
Every product purchased from United By Blue removes one pound of trash from the world’s oceans and rivers. Currently, their initiatives have removed over 1.5 million pounds of trash. You can join the efforts too! Find upcoming cleanups on their website to help keep our waterways trash free.

Corky Details
Pelcor draws inspiration from cork skin and utilizes the natural resource in all of their products. The main benefit: extraction from cork oaks helps the trees to reproduce and thrive. More healthy trees equal a better planet for us all.

Sneakers That Stand Up
Transparency is crucial for VEJA. Breakdowns of where materials are sourced, the farmers they support, how much workers are paid, the percentages of those materials used, what downfalls have been encountered, and so much more is available to consumers on project.veja-store.com.

Waves of Change
With a focus on creating timeless pieces and built on ethical standards that span across all aspects of their company, their newest The Ina bag isn’t the only thing making waves. Just to name a couple of behno’s eco-conscious ways: fabric waste limitation and use of leather that has been discarded as a result of food supply.

With Love
The planet is one of four pillars that make up the ideals of SVILU. From organic and upcycled materials, to green cleaning of garments with cold water, to recycled packaging, our earth is kept a top priority in how each product is produced.

Caring Knits
Sourcing organic, natural, and recycled materials isn’t the only way to reduce fashion’s impact on the planet. Kordal also encourages customers to properly care for garments, adjust pieces to better suit your changing tastes, and recycle garments in an effort to lengthen the life of clothing.

Sole-cial Responsibility
Handmade products equal less machinery and energy consumption. Vegetable dyes reduce the use of chemicals harmful to humans and the environment. Recycled car tires are used for shoe soles. Leftover leathers are repurposed for their line of kid’s shoes. Just count the ways this luxury shoe brand is helping to evoke change.

Fashionable Fibers
It all starts with a focus on the fibers at AMUR. Materials used are either natural and organically grown, reclaimed from the waste of cotton plants, or reused when excess material finds a new purpose. From the luxurious fibers and fabrics to the tailored, classic designs meant to be kept in use throughout the seasons, these pieces will only elevate a wardrobe.
