Sustainable Gender Neutral and Unisex Clothing for Every Body

The gender binary is so last century. In recent years, important gender-related issues from the rights of transgender people to feel safe and respected to athletic participation of trans and gender diverse people have highlighted the need for a shift in thinking. As traditional gender roles are evolving, and more and more people learn and accept that not everyone fits into the boxes of “man” and “woman”, so too are industries beginning to cater for the entire spectrum of beautiful gender-diverse humans we share our spaces with!

One of the biggest challenges facing people who fall outside the gender binary is finding clothes that help them feel good in their skin. Coupled with sourcing sustainable brands that treat our fellow humans, animals, and the planet right, it can seem near impossible to overcome this hurdle! And while the world still has a lot of catching up to do, thankfully there is a selection of ‘Good’ and ‘Great’ rated fashion brands creating sustainable gender neutral and unisex clothing for every body. Even if you identify as a man or woman and just prefer a neutral look, these brands are for you, too!
