Sustainable Brand Highlight: The Girlfriend Collective

Today I am sharing my second sustainable brand post. The Girlfriend Collective is an activewear company that recycles by taking back any old Girlfriend Collective wear. You get some store credit for recycling plus you can feel better about your environmental impact! The paloma sports bra is by far my favorite product of theirs but everything I have tried on has been super comfortable and flattering.

I got the sports bra and leggings in rose quarts and absolutely love them! I seriously wear sports bra every other day. Also that pink tie dye t-shirt looks so comfy plus proceeds are donated to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation.

They also offer a microfiber filter that allows you to catch microplastics that come off of your clothing in the wash. This is actually an issue that I was not aware of so researching the company shed some needed light on yet another plastic problem. Overall I think they are a great company and definitely worth checking out if you need any workout clothing (or just comfy, durable clothing).

Sustainable Brand Highlight: Everlane

UPDATE: I completely forgot to mention that Nordstrom is carrying Everlane right now.

Along with this new Sustainable Style Series that I am doing I wanted to highlight a brand every month that does a great job of creating clothing it a sustainable way. There are lots of factors that are involved in this process so I will do my best to explain how a brand is “sustainable” and what their views are on sustainable style. I am starting with Everlane since it is my favorite for basics. Everything is so cute, stylish and affordable. They are also very transparent about the whole process of making a piece (cost and all). I also think it is a brand that makes clothing that is high quality and lasts for a long time. That is such an important part of creating a sustainable brand since ultimately we don’t want to keep producing and buying.

I have been going to Everlane for pretty much everything before looking anywhere else. Before I share some of my favorites from them I wanted to share some things that I have had my eye on. First are these knit booties. I love that they are unique and stylish. I have not tried any Everlane shoes yet but I am hoping to in the future! Next are these wide leg pants. I usually stick to skinny or straight leg but I am loving these. Finally, I have had my eye on their puffer jackets since last year.

This white sweater has been my obsession for several weeks now. It is such great quality, so comfortable and so classic!

I will say that I have not tried many of there pants/jeans but they are all look amazing. I do have these black jeans that they are great (also on sale right now for such a great price)!

There loungewear is also great quality. I can just tell it will last a long time. This sweatshirt is sold out now but the hoodie they do have in stock looks so comfy (that brass color is so nice).

This might be one of the best purchases for value I have made all year. This t-shirt dress is so comfortable, a great color and affordable. It is sold out now but hopefully they will bring it back next summer (they do still have a cotton shirtdress in stock).

I also wanted to mention that I have an Everlane backpack and I love it. It is such great quality and mine is black so it goes with everything.

I hope you enjoyed! Let me know what your favorite ‘sustainable brands’ are!
