3 Need To Know Sustainable Fashion Companies

The Eileen Fisher is a long time believer that social and environmental injustices are reasons to do business completely differently. This successful brand has always had an eye for clothes that will stay with a consumer for as long as possible, though we all know one's favorite go-to T-Shirt doesn't last forever. Which is where Eileen Fisher Renew comes in, by welcoming every pre-owned piece with open arms. Renew is a "take-back and reuse program that preserves the value of our clothes at every stage, in any condition. It's part of our commitment to being circular by design." Essentially, you bring back old Eileen Fisher clothes, receive a gift card and they will find it a brand new home. If your item(s) can no longer be worn, it will be remade into a new one-of-a-kind design.
Everlane is all about radical transparency. Spending months finding the best factories around the world and building strong personal relationships with factory owners to ensure the factory's integrity and to maintain ethical production practices at every step of the process. The brand strongly believes that customers have the right to know what their products cost to make and where they were made. They unveil their true costs and share the factory and production stories behind each piece of clothing on their website.
A perfect brand for the sustainable fashionista, this Los Angeles based brand creates products only from sustainable and upcycled materials. Even offering on-trend pieces that will still be in style well after the season is over. Reformation’s dedication to sustainable production is greatly explained on their website, plus each piece comes with a full description of its environmental footprint. Part of their mission is to focus on sourcing, "sustainable fabrics, and vintage garments while incorporating better practices throughout our supply chain to make beautiful styles at a fraction of the environmental impact of conventional fashion."
