Looking for an easy, one-stop shop to pick up sustainable and ethically-made clothing for everyone in your family? Here’s a roundup of brands that make conscious clothes for women, men, and children so your whole family can have a lighter impact on the planet.
This round-up is in partnership with tentree, one of my family’s most-worn sustainable clothing brands.
If you counted the brands in our closet, between my husband and I tentree would be a clear favourite. We love their focus on functional, comfortable, and good quality, yet still stylish and easy-to-wear everyday clothing.
Regarding their sustainability, tentree’s efforts and impact goes well beyond planting trees with each purchase, they also:
- Use lower impact materials such as Tencel, organic cotton, hemp, and recycled polyester made from plastic bottles.
- Track the environmental footprint of their garments.
- Pay living wages and their code of conduct for factories is publicly available.
- Are working to completely eliminate virgin plastic from all packaging materials by 2023.
- Are transparent about where their products are made.
tentree is our family’s go-to for comfy pieces and they have a great variety of styles. They’re a staple brand in my husband’s wardrobe and our toddler is the newest tentree fan, absolutely loving her cozy “sunny hoodie” as she calls it.
