In order for a clothing material to be used in a piece of clothing, considerable time is spent to extract these raw materials, process them into fabric, and patch them up as a garment. Hence, a material can be deemed sustainable if it contributes to reducing the environmental impacts during this life cycle. We introduce five fibers we can choose from that help make an item of clothing more sustainable.

Within the Big Apple’s bustling streets, home to culture from all over the world, a rising number of sustainable brands and locations call New York City their home. While exploring the high-rise landscape, conscious consumers can shop their beloved sustainable brands in person. This is your shop guide to navigating New York City sustainably. Dressing up rather than down is the common practice in the fashion-forward city. Sustainable brands like L’Appartement Sézane bring a Parisian, eco-friendly fashion stateside, with other brands like Industry of All Nations offering timeless daily designs that are perfect for a stroll through Central Park. The high-end sustainable luxury Gabriela Hearst is ideal to get that runway look for a night out at one of the city’s many famous restaurants. GANNI is an another sustainable luxury clothing brand forindividuals also scouring for that picturesque, Instagram-ready look. Or, travel through time at What Goes Around Comes Around, a vintage store with 30 years of history selling pre-owned luxury pieces, or 10 ft Single by Stella Dallas, a vintage store loved by many celebrities. After finding your perfect outfit, head to Rothy's Nolita for sustainably crafted shoes and handbags to match. Amongst giants like MAC, Christian Dior SE, NARS Cosmetics, and Estee Lauder Companies, finding sustainable clean beauty brands is a simple visit to SOHO for a stop at The Detox Market, or Credo Beauty, clean beauty retailers that only carry sustainable beauty brands that meet their strict ingredient standards.
