Behind the Scenes

“Sustainable” gets thrown around a lot these days. In contrast to all the clickbait big media articles, at Eco-Stylist we only say sustainable when we really mean it.

Before recommending clothing brands to you, we research them utilizing our sustainable brand criteria. This holistic approach helps us ask all the tough questions while being completely transparent about our research process.

Since our criteria is fashion-specific, we occasionally recommend value aligned accessary brands (non-fashion). In practice what this means is all of the brands in this article are Eco-Stylist Certified except for accessory brand Caldera + Lab, which is value aligned and a certified B Corporation.

What’s Left on Your List?

Navigating the holidays can be tricky. Especially when you’re trying to keep your list ethical, sustainable, and vegan friendly.

The best option is to buy mindfully and in advance, and we hope this list of vegan options can assist you in alleviating those obstacles and stress.
