42 Sustainable Brands For Every Budget and Taste

There’s a common misconception about sustainable fashion—it’s all overpriced and bland. Well, we’re here to tell you it doesn’t have to be!

While we agree some sustainable fashion brands are more expensive than others—and usually more costly than fast fashion due to higher quality materials and the better treatment of workers—the world of sustainable fashion is growing every day. More and more eco-friendly fashion brands are being created to meet consumers’ needs, budgets, and values.

So to help you out on your journey to a more sustainable wardrobe, we’ve compiled this list of our favourite sustainable brands for every budget and taste! Whether you’re looking for vegan, organic, colourful, minimalist, plus-size, or a brand based in Europe, the US, Australia, or even India, you’re bound to find a brand that suits you.

$ – Budget friendly

These are the more affordable ethical brands of the bunch. Great for those with limited disposable income or who prefer to invest their money outside their wardrobe.
