15 Sustainable Clothing Companies Doing Amazing Things

Some of you may have heard me talk about Plastic Free July over on my Instagram stories and how we’re working toward reducing the amount of single-use plastics (and garbage!) that are coming in and out of our home. I even shared a blog outlining 7 little changes we were making in our household to move towards this goal, check it out here! Well, today, in an effort to continue my journey to reduce as much waste as possible, I thought it would be a great idea to look at what I consume most in my life and start to find ways to minimize it … and yes, you guessed it, that would be CLOTHES! LOL! I think so many of us can relate to this considering most of the time we don’t even know where our clothes are coming from and the effect they may be having on our planet!!

Since fashion and clothes are a pretty big part of my everyday life and one of those things that I’ll never be able to fully eliminate, I thought I would start looking at clothing in a different light and spend some time researching the most eco-friendly brands so I could share them with you too! Now, I know I haven’t nailed this quite yet, but I still think it’s so important to shop smart when we can and keep our planet top of mind. Plus, it’s pretty cool to find companies and brands that align with this!!

While doing my research on eco-friendly brands, I actually found a ton of Canadian clothing brands that are seriously changing the game and making a difference! I’ve shared a few of them below (in no particular order!) and would LOVE for you to share any others in the comments below that you’re aware of!

1. Londre Body Wear 

Londre’s swimsuits are primarily made out of recycled materials and sustainable textiles and they’re made just a hop, skip, and a jump away in Vancouver, B.C.! Plus, all of their packaging is biodegradable and reusable! They even offer 20% off your purchase if you return your no longer used Londre suit to be recycled!! So incredible! You can’t get much better than swimsuits that are both made out of recycled materials and can also be recycled! Way to go Londre!! Not to mention, they have a number of styles and colours of suits, and they’re all so flattering and sexy, LOL!

2. L/L Supply

L/L supply is made right here in British Columbia and they make the cutest tees (I’ve shared a couple of my favourites below!)  … in fact, not only are they cute, but all of their clothes are 100% made from fabric waste from landfills!! How cool is that?!

3. Anupaya

Anupaya is a brand that is geared towards the outdoor lifestyle! All of their products are made using sustainable and recycled materials and these guys LOVE the planet! So much so that they’ve started an initiative called the One Pound Promise and the goal of this initiative is to remove ONE POUND of waste for every product sold!! They do this by hosting and funding community clean-ups across all of Canada and the world!! If you’re interested in joining a cleanup, learn more here!

4. Beth Richards

Beth Richards swimsuits are ethically manufactured in Vancouver, B.C. in aims to reduce their carbon footprint and ensure waste is minimized! I have been wearing these swimsuits for a while now, and trust me they do not disappoint!! I love them for their amazing quality, and for the brand’s efforts to being eco-friendly! Some of you may recognize the one below (the Ines One Piece ) because I wore it for our team pool day!

8. Frank and Oak

Frank and Oak create clothing for men and women all made with a minimal impact plan in place to prioritize recycled fabrics! Their packaging boxes and shopping bags are also 100% recyclable! They have also created an initiative called Let’s Give a Shi(r)t, where they donate a shirt every time customers bring in old clothing to be donated or repurposed instead of it going to the landfill which is SO awesome!!

9. Free Label

Free Label clothing is all handmade and sewn in Vancouver and Toronto and all of their products are made from natural sustainable fabrics. Plus, their packaging is also sourced from recycled materials!

Not only are they helping the planet, but they’re also sustaining another part of the world. SO cool!! And it gets better … they are not only cute but they don’t break the bank either!!

They believe in promoting a waste-free lifestyle and sell products that can easily help you do this !! They have awesome market bags, mesh produce bags for the grocery store (I use these all the time when I grocery shop!!), and even a picnic sling …  I don’t know about you, but I may need that in my life! LOL!

    Hi Jillian! This is very good topic. Thank you for sharing.
