Bundlling feels better when you know your money is saving our oceans, reforesting the Amazon or fighting sexual exploitation. Here are five fashion brands that are working hard to brighten our future.
Gone are the days when we were happy to splash our cash on any old product, without a thought for its impact on our skies, seas and forests (not to mention our bears!). Many of us are now keen to make sure that our outfits suit, not only our looks, but our values, too. With that in mind, the bear has tracked down some of the most sustainable and ethical brands on the market. They’re all bundll-friendly, so you can buy now, but pay later (and snooze if you need a little more time).
Cariuma: stylish, comfy, consciously made sneakers
Since launching in 2018, Brazil’s Cariuma has taken the sneaker world by storm with its kicks, which not only look good and feel good, but do good, too. Whether you bundll a pair of OCA Lows or Catiba Pros, you can rest assured that, for every sale, Cariuma will plant two trees as part of its Brazilian reforestation program.
Away That Day: swimwear that’s saving our seas
Away That Day transforms the rubbish floating around our oceans into catwalk-worthy cossies. That rubbish includes plastics, nylons and discarded fishing nets. All swimwear is made in a factory in London, where workers are paid above the minimum wage. Plus, if you send in your old swimmers, Away That Day will recycle them—and you’ll score 15% off your next buy.
Organic Crew: luxe, organic cotton basics
Australia’s Organic Crew creates beautiful basics, made of cotton grown at a GOTS-certified farm in India. All garments are sewn in Melbourne, where the brand ensures workers are treated well and paid fairly. Bundll some cosy PJs or a boyfriend tee; either way, you can rest assured that your pick won’t hurt the planet or its people.
Velvet Heartbeat: cruelty-free, hand-crafted bags and accessories
No animals (including bears!) are harmed in the making of Velvet Heartbeat’s irresistible handbags and wallets. Every accessory is lovingly handcrafted to last from vegan leather and plant based textiles in the company’s workshops in Auckland, New Zealand. To reduce waste, upcycled materials are used whenever possible and stock is kept to a minimum.
Outland Denim: jeans that fight sexual exploitation
Outland Denim’s mission is to provide survivors of sexual exploitation in Cambodia with stable employment, fair treatment and a decent wage. In addition, the brand delves deep into its supply chains, to ensure that every step of the cotton-growing and denim-making process is ethical, sustainable and transparent.
