- Reformation – A contemporary women’s fashion brand beloved by everybody from Taylor Swift to Lily Aldridge. Their materials fall into one of 3 categories: it’s either “sustainable”, repurposed vintage clothing, or deadstock fabric bought from fashion houses.
- ECOALF – Spanish-based fashion brand that manufactures from recycled materials.
- Everlane – A SF-based startup that focuses on wardrobe basics & a transparent supply chain.
- Zady – There’s also an emphasis on wardrobe basics here, but Zady also incorporates a sustainability element (with materials like organic cotton) and stocks outside designers as well.
- Patagonia – For all your winter wear needs. Patagonia incorporates a large amount of recycled material in their clothing. Their founder, Yvon Chouinard, even wrote a book about the company’s journey to sustainability!
