Brands That Are Saving The Planet (In Style) On World Earth Day 2017
Earth Day 2017 is right around the corner (April 22), and we have been looking at how everyone around us are thinking of leading lives that are very environmentally friendly. For people like us who want to be eco-friendly and not compromise on our style there are a number of brands that are giving us this chance of being fashion conscious. So many clothing, accessory and beauty brands have decided to become more green recently in their own unique ways. This year on Earth day 2017 these lines are really giving back to the environment and we should support them in every way possible for doing something so incredible for our planet. Join them and celebrate with them this Earth Day 2017, where its really time to consider our impact on the environment.
We also love how sustainable fashion, green beauty, organic products are words we hear so much recently and though they may be helping the environment they have become more of a trend. So many brands and designers are standing up for their concerns about global warming. Groups such as H&M are doing their part to educate their consumers and Stella McCartney building their entire business on sustainability and vegan collections. Sustainable fashion is becoming such a big trend in this industry, this gives out the message loud and clear to millions of people and it’s a great way to increase awareness. Now some people even choose organic products out of choice, especially in the beauty industry since they prefer not to use too many chemicals on their body. So, let’s keep these fashion and beauty trends alive for a long time in order to save our planet as much as we can! Read below to find out how 20 fashion, accessory and beauty brands are giving back to the environment.
