Friday, November 20, 2015

i've had a few male friends ask about ethical apparel ooptions for the boys, so i put together a little post to satiate the eco + the stylish men out there. because an ethical man is a sexy man, yes, indeed.

here listed are some of my fave men's eco apparel lines, good people making good clothes: i should know, i own some!
1} from our friends at two thirdsat twothirds our aim is to create fully organic as well as biodegradable and recyclable products, coming from nature and going back to nature without creating any harmful effect for the environment. to achieve this our fabrics as well as the majority of our trimmings, threads and labels are out of organic materials, so the garment is entirely or partly recyclable and/or biodegradable. at twothirds our aim is to reuse already produced polyester materials such as water bottles for the production of the entire garment. all products are crafted in europe. twothirds is partner of the global ocean initiative mission blue and engages in several blue partnerships. keep your closets clean + the oceans clean, boys + girls.
2} from our friends at nudie jeanswe do not envisage a trade-off between profit and people, or between manufacture and environmental responsibility. these issues are major factors in our choice of suppliers. as with most other clothing brands, we don't own the factories in which our clothing is made. however, together with the garment factories we collaborate with, we bear the responsibility to provide a safe, fair and ethical working environment for all the people who are involved in the manufacture of our clothes. 100% organic denim collection right this way
3} from our friends at glass house shirtmakers: glass house offers transparency as a company from harvest to hanger. the fabrics we currently use are 100% organic cotton, hemp, lyocell, and blends of other sustainable fabrics. we use reclaimed fabrics that may be thrown away or take time to redistribute, so we buy them before they head to the landfill. glass house takes into consideration, from crop to final product, all the people involved in the making of our shirts. we make sure that all people in the production of our shirts are treated with respect and love, as everyone deserves.we offer shirts that will be more than a shirt; they will redefine what you wear. ready for a transformation? 
4} from our friends at wildlife works: can fashion save wildlife? at wildlife works, the answer is yes. wildlife works' mission is to harness the power of the global consumer to create innovative and sustainable solutions for wildlife conservation. we call it consumer powered conservation. when you buy a wildlife works product, you become an agent for conservation. you're wearing the brand that says you won't sit quietly while the last wild things in the last wild places disappear forever. the jobs we create to make our products, and the money we invest into forest communities has a direct impact on saving endangered and threatened wildlife around the globe. click your way to consumer powered conservation.
5} from our friends at vaute coutureour goal is to create the best outerwear- beautiful, weatherproof, with love for the earth, the animals, and workers. we continue to develop innovative textiles and apparel so that one day the world will look at wearing animals as a thing of the past. warm sweaters + coats crafted in new york right this way

6} {pictured above} from our friends at brave gentlemanwe don't believe animals belong in the fashion production system, or any industrial system. we believe that the people making our clothing + growing or processing our materials deserve respect + dignity through safe working conditions + a living wage. we believe that ecosystems should not be destroyed to make fashion. we believe the increasing velocity of fast fashion is one very visible manifestation for a much larger + deeper problem. we don't think brave gentleman is a final solution, but is is a  means by which to invest in systems that we believe should flourish and ultimately replace more problematic systems. stylish solutions right here. 
7} from our friends at knowledgewe believe in sustainable menswear that makes a difference. fashion is not just about looking good. it’s about doing what is right and feeling good about it – in respect of people and the environment. we never comprise on style, comfort and quality. through our use of 100% certified organic cotton and other sustainable materials it is our goal to save the environment from 400 tons of pesticides, chemicals + fertilizers by the year 2020. organic cotton + recycled pet bottles make for the perfect jacket + mighty fine shirts.
