sustainable fashion

Have you ever considered what your clothes are made of? If so do you know where the clothes come from and if you’re buying from an ethical fashion store that’s practicing sustainable fashion? Well worry not because in this article we will be going over what sustainable fashion is and some key factors in finding out if the clothes you’re purchasing are made from sustainable avenues!


What Is Sustainable Fashion?

Before we start to determine if the clothes we are buying are sustainable and ethical we first need to outline what even is sustainable fashion. According to Wikipedia sustainable fashion is, “Sustainable fashion is a movement and process of fostering change to fashion products and the fashion system towards greater ecological integrity and social justice.

Sustainable fashion concerns more than just addressing fashion textiles or products. It comprises addressing the whole system of fashion.” – Wikipedia. Given this information what it boils down to are systems that practice creating clothes that will help the Earth by using sustainable methods and materials. The goal of sustainable fashion is to create a long term healthy way of creating clothes. Now that we know what sustainable fashion is let’s move onto figuring out how to determine if the clothes you are buying are made with ethical intentions.

How To Determine If You’re Buying Sustainable Fashion

Well with the new-found knowledge of what sustainable fashion is, we can now start to determine if we are buying sustainable clothes. Just knowing and being aware of what you’re wearing makes you a step ahead of most. The easiest way to determine if you’re buying from an ethical fashion store is checking their ‘About Me’ section on their website. Almost all of these stores that practice sustainable fashion take great pride in doing so as it is a very good practice. If you are reading up on a fashion store’s about section and you see no mention of the keywords ‘ethical’ and/or ‘sustainable’ then most likely they aren’t practicing sustainable fashion. One more direct way is contacting the fashion company’s support and asking them if they practice sustainable fashion. Lastly if you would rather be given some stores that practice sustainable fashion then keep reading as I’ll recommend some located below.

Sustainable fashion is important for the longevity of our Earth. By taking steps now to produce clothes from sustainable materials and using sustainable methods it will allow the future of our planet to continue living healthy. The cherry on top is much sustainable and ethical clothing is actually very low cost. Pair this with some really fashionable choices of clothes and you end up with a win-win scenario.

  1. I’m very happy to see a site like this because I support sustainable materials and fashion myself. Even the dress you showed with the red flowers, the dress from my grease, the breeze and the sea background… Thank you for this very helpful and informative article! I wish you a lot of success in your further work!

  2. Wow, this is so perfect! I dedicate a good chunk of my time to write in my vintage apparel blog, so your post about sustainable fashion feels like home. Being a fashion lover, I am aware of the environmental impact the industry has. Take cotton, for example, a widely popular clothing material that takes enormous amounts of land, water, and pesticides to grow. Thus, it is important to stop consuming and throwing away clothing so carelessly. We need to start extending the life of our clothing pieces, and of course, start shopping for sustainable fashion. I will check out your recommendations for fashion stores.

    Thank you for the great post, Samuel!

    1. Samuel says:

      Hi Alex, I hope you’re doing well! I appreciate your feedback and happy to hear you feel at home here. You’re absolutely right about your cotton example and thanks for taking the time to explain. I hope to see you again around here at Comfy Sweaters! All the best, take care

  3. It always makes me happy to see the promotion of sustainable fashion and I do feel that the styles and actual materials are becoming nicer as the years go by. The world really has to get serious about sustainability now in all areas and I am seeing so much more of it in all industries in Australia. Gone are the days of making a profit and not caring how.

    You had a great explanation and I liked the suggestion about checking the ‘About’ section on clothing websites and/or asking them if they are creating sustainable fashion.

    1. Samuel says:

      Hello Lily! I’m glad to hear another person supporting sustainable fashion. I loved how you mentioned Australia, because you’re 100% right on them. I hope more parts of the world can practice sustainability in all fields. I appreciate the feedback and hope to see you around here again! All the best, take care

  4. I love sustainable fashion and in particular your Comfey Sweaters Post. I have to admit I don’t see very much in this way unless I go to the big cities. However, in saying this I wear farm trousers for work and when I get a hole in them I sew a patch over the hole. This is my way of extending the life of my work trousers and adding some fun patchwork to them. But I would love to learn more about you sustainable fashion.

    1. Hello Yvonne! Thank you for taking the time to leave this message and sharing your fashion. That’s really fascinating how you in your own way are practicing sustainable fashion by patching up your trousers and extending there life. I’m glad you found this post on sustainable fashion interesting and if you want to learn more be sure to sign up to our newsletter. This way you can stay up to date on new posts just for you.

  5. LineCowley says:

    Looking after our planet is extremely important if we want to preserve it for ourselves and future generations. The fashion industry is the second largest polluting industry, so it is great to find companies and brands that use sustainable and ethical practices to produce clothing. 

    With more consumers looking for sustainable fashion, companies have to take action and think about the people that make the clothes, as well as take care of the planet.

    1. Samuel says:

      Hi there LineCowley! I’m so glad to hear another person who understands and takes sustainability seriously. You’re absolutely right how the fashion industry is the second largest polluting industry which is why I think practicing sustainability in fashion is so important. I hope the rest of your day goes well, thanks for stopping by and I hope to see you around again!

    Now here I can with confidence say that I never in my wildest dreams thought about clothes and fashion like this, I like that you make people aware of these types of things because sooner rather than later we will need to take matters of the environment very seriously so I thank you for giving me the information.

    1. Samuel says:

      Hi there Marthin, I hope you’re well today. I’m glad I was able to make you aware of the sustainability options we have for clothes. I couldn’t agree more that sooner rather than later we need to consider these matters for our environment.
