GOOD TO GO
Three ways to change your fashion habits.
DOWNLOAD Good on You This app is like an encyclopedia of ethical fashion. Just type in any brand and you’ll see its sustainability rating, which ranges from “We avoid” to “It’s a start” and all the way up to “Great.” The rating is based on criteria like animal rights, labour practices and environmental impact. The app is free, but staying informed is priceless. LOOK FOR Tencel There’s a reason beloved eco brands like Reformation and Patagonia often use Tencel: It has a similar feel to cotton but is made out of eucalyptus trees, which need 80-percent less water to grow than cotton and don’t require the use of harmful pesticides and water-polluting chemicals. Time to start reading labels. USE The Guppyfriend Every time you wash those Lycra leggings and polyblend sweaters, you release microplastics—tiny synthetic fibres—into rivers and oceans, where they can enter the food chain. The solution? Guppyfriend, a mesh laundry bag that’s specifically designed to filter out microplastics. Doing laundry has never felt more virtuous.
