Consumers are becoming more conscious about brand selection. They’re starting to question where their clothing is made, who’s making it, and what it’s made of. And chances are, you are too.
So whether you’re a man shopping for yourself or the significant other shopping for the eco-conscious man in your life, it’s great that you’re considering an alternative to “fast-fashion” brands. And there are some really great eco-friendly clothing brands that make great quality, stylish and functional clothing for men.
Why should you should sustainable and ethical brands over mainstream “fast fashion” brands?
Your typical “fast-fashion” brand typically sources production in other countries that are void of any ethical standards—and where child labor is utilized to achieve high production. The work conditions are horrible, and so is the pay. It’s just wrong and unethical.
When you support an eco-friendly, ethical fashion brand, you’re most likely getting clothing that’s made right here in the USA, or within worldwide manufacturing facilities that are held to strict ethical standards.
Below are several of our favorite eco-friendly clothing brands that are not only practical, outdoor friendly and stylish, but do their part in contributing to non-profit organizations—such as 1% for the planet.
When you buy a product made by these eco-conscious brands, you’re literally helping to plant trees, clean up trash and help battle poverty.
