22 Eco-Friendly Clothing Brands Doing ‘Great’ For the Planet

Earth is our home, and we have an obligation to protect it. This inherent sense of duty to nourish the planet that nourishes us right back has sadly fallen by the wayside in the past few decades, as consumer industries—like fashion—have prioritised speed and scale over responsible production, with devastating effects on the environment. The climate crisis is the most pressing environmental issue of our time, and conscious consumers now know that incorporating eco-friendly clothing brands into their wardrobes is one solid step they can take to reduce their impact on the environment with their purchases. So whether you’re just starting to do an ethical overhaul of your closet, or you’re a seasoned sustainable fashionista, these brands are well worth a look in if saving the planet is on your to-do list.

Read on to discover 22 of the most eco-friendly clothing brands we’ve found, all rated ‘Great’ on Environmental Impact for their efforts in protecting the planet with their products.
