Sadly, the fashion retail industry hides a lot of scary secrets when you are shopping, like who's making your clothes and what materials are going into them.
But all hope isn't lost: There are some smart AF companies making stuff out of recyclables - even from things as unexpected as plastic bottles.
One such brand is the newly launched NoMiNoU, a yoga line by Founder and Creative Director Julianna Smith who makes her clothes in North America from 100-percent recyclable PET (polyethylene terephthalate) - which includes plastic bottles. Julianna is a #GirlBoss on a mission - she incorporates her late artist mother's drawings and meaningful quotes into her workout gear and everyday wear as #Inspo for girls and women everywhere.
Julianna's not the only one turning bottles into something beautiful - ECOALF is making sustainable, stylish AF stuff like chic puffer coats and metallic backpacks.
Montreal, Canada-based Matt & Nat creates structured, vegan leather handbags lined with recycled bottles that feel, above all, fashion-forward. You'd never guess these bags had a super ethical mission statement.
G-Star Raw collaborated with Pharrell to co-design a collection called RAW for the Oceans that uses his Bionic Yarn - a project that recycles plastic from the ocean into textiles.
With so many cute AF eco-friendly fashion brands, there's no excuse to play dumb when it comes to knowing where your clothing comes from. Start shopping for clothes that make a difference!
