Our Favorite Sustainability Websites Right Now
Since we’ve started Original Favorites, we wanted our years of experience in the apparel industry to be a resource for good. Changing the apparel industry’s standards is imperative to creating a more sustainable world. Change starts with education and if the majority of consumers had access to verifiable facts, big corporations would be held more accountable. It is up to the consumer to stop to accepting false claims like ‘eco-friendly’ and ‘organic’ when no evidence is there to back up these claims.
Being a part of a better solution in the fashion industry means we have to educate ourselves first. We always want to have the most up-to-date knowledge about sustainability efforts and metrics around the world. We are dedicated to educating ourselves so we can be a resource for our customers. Throughout the years, we have come across many educational websites, some of which we have continuously gone back to. We want to provide our readers with resources to be able to find other sustainable companies dedicated to eco-friendly practices. Below is a condensed list of our favorite sustainability-driven websites for you to use as a resource.
