I like fashion and try to keep up with some trends, but when it comes to green, sustainable clothing you have to be prepared to invest. Mass production just isn’t the same with eco-friendly fabrics and companies, but you definitely don’t have to sacrifice style for sustainability. Here are a few companies I’d like to buy from and a few items from each that I have my eye on. Miik is Canadian company bent on providing affordable, sustainable fashion to women by using bamboo fabric and fabric blends. For more about this great eco-company click here. The outfit I’m looking at is a super soft pair on bamboo leggings and a tunic top with a sheer strip at the top. It looks very comfortable and right up my alley.
leggings $65, tunic $145
Elroy Apparel is bent on fair trade and creating employment opportunities for people in Indonesia. Sustainability and environmental awareness are the key pillars of their company’s business model. For more info click here. The whole collection is quite simplistic and basic, which works well for building a wardrobe. Although some of the pieces have an edge…and those are the ones which caught my eye.

Lilikoi was listed in the TLC’s top ten eco-friendly clothing stores to know about. Their designs are stunning and there are way too may things from this company that are on my wishlist to show. I decided to go with one from every category.
