By Lakeisha Goedluck, 6 November 2017

A pioneer within the Fair Trade industry, People Tree exclusively manufactures its threads from environmentally-friendly fabrics. So, for an on-trend top half that’s been made in a moral way, opt for this checked shirt made from 100% organic cotton.

Keep being kind to the planet and choose a pair of skinny jeans from the label to go on your bottom half. Its denim range also makes use of organic cotton that requires 71% less water compared to conventional cotton. 

 

As for accessories, shoes and bags are particularly troublesome for the planet-concerned, because they’re often constructed from leather. Save the animals and go for a functional backpack from Matt & Nat constructed from vegan leather, and team with a pair of Converse All Star Hi trainers that are predominantly made of canvas. Sustainable dressing, sorted.
