I love sustainable fashion, i.e. the type of fashion that is conscious of social responsibility as well as the impact on the environment. This movement says that its not just what our apparel & accessories look like that matters, but its also what they stand for and the story behind their origin that drives their value.
Today I am highlighting my top 3 favorite sustainable fashion pieces from three very different brands that are close to my heart. They all produce incredible hand made pieces that are not only amazing, but also support a great cause.
1. Full Moon Drop Earrings & Simple Cuff - by Canned Goods
I first met Canned Goods at a local Denver boutique, and it was love at first sight. I couldn't believe that the pieces really used to just be cans! Canned Goods repurposes tin cans into amazing jewelry pieces, and if recycling wasn't enough of a contribution, they also give one can of food for each item purchased through their CAN DO GOOD program.
2. Recycled Mason Jar Ring – by Bottled Up Designs
3. The Evelyn Necklace - by Tribe + Glory
You might not have heard of Tribe + Glory just yet, so I'll introduce you. Tribe + Glory is a jewelryl ine hand crafted by artisans in a women's empowerment program in the village of Zirobwe, Uganda. Each piece is made of recycled paper and eco-friendly materials, but has a deeper story. Tribe + Glory likes to say that there is a connection between the woman who made the item and the woman wearing it, which when you think about it is a pretty cool thing.
