More and more people want to start a more sustainable life. Which also includes making sustainable choices when it comes to fashion. They do not always know how to best approach this and what is truly sustainable or where to find it. As soon as you dive into the fair fashion world, everything often comes at you at once and it becomes difficult to remain focused. Do you recognize this? We have put together a list of sustainable fashion blogs that help you on your way.
Every blog has a unique story with the same purpose; make us more aware of the fast fashion industry. Knowing where our clothing comes from, how it is made and what materials are important, but in addition to fair fashion, they also strive for stylish looks. They are full of tips and tricks and style advice!
Mumster is not necessarily a blog, rather a fashion movement, and platform founded by Chanel Trapman, but is definitely worth a mention.
Mumster brings people together and inspires them to take positive action in the fashion industry through creativity. They want to shake us awake and show that the entire fast fashion industry is failing in so many aspects. As a result, the Mumster team is always looking for sustainable fashion alternatives and initiatives and they are setting a good example, not only for us but also the fashion world that everything can be done differently.
Chanel Trapman recently released the documentary "Taking Justice", which focuses on the sustainable clothing brand J-Lab3l, founded by former lawyers Janneke Honings and Judith van der Wolde. In the documentairy they tell their story and show their entire business journey. Worth a look!
