April 22, 2020

Happy Earth Day (4/22/21)! Today is a day to spread awareness about how we can be friendlier to our environment; after all, we only have one planet! There are an abundance of ways to contribute to saving Mother Earth; however, I wanted to highlight one specific way: shopping smarter. Today I’m sharing twelve amazing, sustainable and eco-friendly brands that are doing the most to go green. Whether it be planting trees, using recycled materials for their products or decreasing plastic and electricity usage, all these stores are being proactive in their mission to promote sustainability. Plus, almost all these brands have now released tons of cute and comfy activewear or loungewear that is perfect for staying at home. If you’re on the market for any new clothing, definitely consider these earth-friendly brands. There’s a good mix of brands you probably have heard of and some that may be new to you, but the one thing in common that they all have, is their commitment to protecting our home. To make it easier for you, I also listed their current sales + ways to save even more!
