This years Earth Day theme is "Invest in our Planet." Earth day takes place on April 22nd, with the entire month of April being dedicated to environmental education and why it's so important to take care of our planet. Over the last decade brands worldwide have taken the initiative to become more sustainable through their design process, production, and distribution.
So what exactly does this mean? Simply put, sustainable fashion ensures fair wages and better working conditions for employees, with the environment in mind every step of the way. This includes organic materials, recycled fabrics, eco-friendly packaging, and vegan resources, all meant to be kept and worn for years to come.
