Sustainable fashion brand of the month: People Tree

Fashion

This month’s sustainable fashion brand is People Tree. I picked them for two main reasons:

1. They were founded in Asia and have expanded with another Headquarter in Europe. To me that shows how much demand and potential sustainability in fashion has.

2. Their collection is setting itself apart from the usual eco-fair brands. It was hard to only pick 5 faves, cause I’d basically buy anything from their clothing line.

This brand proves that sustainability and fashionability can go hand in hand!
