Eco-friendly brands are in
This Saturday, we celebrated Earth Day. April 22 marks the anniversary of the birth of the modern environmental movement in 1970, and all over the world people celebrate planet earth and its resources.
As citizens become more aware of environmental problems, the demand for brands that are environmentally friendly is increasing. In this article, we present five brands that are eco-friendly that you need to know about.
First of all, Nae is a Portuguese footwear brand with a vegan philosophy that is concerned with environmental sustainability. Therefore, the brand only works with alternative materials to leather. Some of these materials are cork, ecological microfibers, pineapple leaves and PET – recycled plastic bottles. As a consequence, the brand intends to be an alternative for those looking for Portuguese footwear design – in Portugal we produce high-quality footwear – and present a major responsibility to the Environment. In conclusion, NAE is against any form of animal exploitation for fashion so is completely vegan.
A Peace Treaty
Specializing in handmade pieces by artisans, A Peace Treaty is a champion in slow-fashion. The founders of the brand dedicate themselves to discovering and preserving centuries-old craftsmanship techniques. Due to that, the brand works with artisan groups across ten countries to produce exclusive collections that are eco-friendly and sustainable.
Another example, NATURAPURA is a brand of baby clothing made with 100% organic cotton. As a result, the brand sells all kinds of clothes with a very particular characteristic: they only exist in three colors: green, brown and raw.
