After viewing the extremely powerful and alarming documentary, True Cost, which takes an inside look at who makes our clothing and how, we've been making a conscious effort to buy less and when we do shop, trying to buy sustainable.
A lot of people ask us where we find eco or responsible clothing because typically terms like "eco" or "sustainable" in the fashion world unfortunately come with a bad reputation for being frumpy or way too expensive. However, after doing our due diligence (shopping is never easy, amiright?!) we are actually quite thrilled with what we've been finding in the sustainable fashion market...
