What Makes These Ethical Sustainable Holiday Gifts?

“Ethical” gets tossed around a lot these days but when we say it we really mean it.

Eco-Stylist uses our sustainable brand criteria to research and certify all clothing and shoe brands on our platform. This comprehensive framework focuses on both the human and environmental sides of sustainability.

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 noho, which is value aligned and B Corporation Certified.
