Your style says so much about you. It tells others who you are, what you believe in, and what you stand for. That’s why people are starting to turn away from fast fashion, and towards eco-conscious companies that respect our planet. With every piece and accessory, they want to show they are an ethical person who cares about Earth and protecting the environment.

So, to help you on your sustainability journey, here are 5 easy fashion swaps you can make today!

1. Swap Fast Fashion for Ethical Tees

What we’re ditching: Unethical, mass-produced cotton t-shirts (it takes up to 2,700 liters of water to make ONE).

What we’re switching to: Firstly, we want t-shirts printed with environmentally friendly water-based inks. Then, we want t-shirts that use organic cotton that is ethically traded and carbon neutral. Is that too much to ask?!

2. Swap Plastic Bags for Reusable Totes

What we’re ditching: Single-use plastic bags that take up to 700 years to break down in landfills.

What we’re switching to: Going shopping shouldn’t mean that you should have to compromise on style. There are lots of simple, high-quality rope knit tote bags out there. It’s the more elegant and durable choice.

3 Swap Leather for Vegan Trainers

What we’re ditching: Leather shoes that involve harming animals.

What we’re switching to: Vegan trainers that are super trendy and avoid leather! These planet-friendly trainers are made with faux leather for comfort and everyday lifestyle. No animals were harmed in the making of these cool trainers!

4. Swap to Sustainably Sourced Denim Jeans

What we’re ditching: Jeans that require up to 8 gallons of water to manufacture – that’s equivalent to three days of water usage for an average US household.

What we’re switching to: Second-hand jeans or jeans that are made sustainably. Some companies are rescuing denim from landfills to create unique, sophisticated pieces. Living by a zero-waste ethos means that every item they create has the lowest carbon footprint possible. What’s not to love?

5. Swap Smartwatches for Wooden Watches

What we’re ditching: Smartwatches that deplete Earth’s precious resources and add to a huge e-waste problem the Earth is facing.

What we’re switching to: Treelanks wooden watches. We couldn’t make a list like this and not include ourselves, could we? Our watches are made of real wood, don’t contain any of the e-waste nasties of smartwatches, and offer a unique twist on a classic accessory for a timeless look that will never go out of style. Wood is a much more plentiful resource and so our products are more respectful of the environment. Look good, feel great.
