If you’re a shopaholic like myself, it’s important to learn about fashion’s negative impact on the environment. Many popular clothing brands and stores have adopted unethical practices that contribute to high carbon emissions, water pollution and large amounts of landfill waste. When it comes to feeding your shopping addiction, you might feel the desire to spend a bunch of money on fast fashion. Instead, check out these four trendy brands that are also sustainable!
Started by Mexican designer Ilse Valfré, Valfré is a lifestyle brand that sells art prints, home decor, clothing and more. I discovered this brand about four years ago when it had a sample sale in Los Angeles. Since then, I’ve been obsessed with the brand’s flowery and kitschy designs. Although Valfré is an ethical brand, its clothes still work for people who have a larger-than-life sense of style. Valfré destroys the notion that sustainable brands always sell basic clothing. Another great thing about this brand is that they work with Inner-City Arts, an organization that offers art education to more than 10,000 at-risk youth from LA public schools annually. I definitely recommend that you check out Valfré because this brand shows how you can do good while selling cute items.
