Sustainable clothing manufacturers have a long history of creating garments that are designed to help people live sustainably.
The brands who have emerged over the past decade have taken on a different focus, and the resulting clothing is made from materials that can be sourced sustainably and have an environmental impact.
The first companies to enter this market were the makers of denim and denim-inspired fabrics like a combination of raw denim and selvedge denim.
These were the first to take a bold stance on sustainability, but now they have also begun to take on a more consumer-friendly approach.
Many of the denim- and seltzer-inspired brands are also sourcing their fabrics from eco-conscious retailers.
These retailers also donate a percentage of their sales to charity.
Many also donate more than the standard percentage of profit on garments made from these recycled materials, giving the clothes a greater chance of making it through the recycling process.
Some of the companies that are making sustainable garments are: The Nasty Kids (www.nastykids.com) The company was founded by four friends and started out in 2012, and has grown into one of the leading denim-focused brands.
The company has a long-standing reputation for being environmentally conscious and donating significant amounts of money to organizations that help reduce waste.
The brand has also embraced eco-friendliness by producing apparel with an environmentally friendly aesthetic, such as the jeans they use for their eco-trendy t-shirts.
This is also the reason why the company has started to produce sustainable products that are available in a wide range of sizes.
Their jeans have an overall eco-inspired feel, with a soft and luxurious feel that fits well on the body.
The team at The Nasties are also on the forefront of creating environmentally-friendly fabrics.
They recently partnered with a local textile mill to produce their own yarns, which are now available at select retailers.
Nasty Kid jeans are available online and at select stores, but The Naughty Kids are also selling their denim at their shop in downtown Toronto, and online at www.naughtykid.com.
