    By Alexandra

    1

    H&M Conscious

    Amber-coloured Sunglasses£ 19.99

    The frames of these modern cat’s-eyes are made wholly from recycled materials 

    2

    Mango Committed

    Mom Slim Jeans£ 49.99

    Every piece in the Committed Collection is 100% sustainable – this pair of jeans is made from denim-style organic cotton

    3

    Ninety Percent

    Striped Stretch-Tencel Turtleneck Top£ 35

    There’s a code on the care label of this eco-friendly top (made from sustainable wood pulp) that can be used online to choose which charity you’d like the proceeds of your purchase to go to

    4

    Topshop

    Reya Vegan Brown High Heels£ 59

    A classic summer sandal that happens to be made from PETA-approved vegan materials that are completely free from animal products

    5

    Simon Miller

    Bonsai 20 Nubuck Bucket Bag£ 540

    Many sustainable initiatives are driven by the water crisis (fashion production uses a lot of it). Simon Miller reduces environmental impact and conserves water by using organic mills and ozone technology

    H&M Conscious

    Knitted Jumper£ 24.99

    Here’s something we didn’t know: polyamide, an oil-based fibre used for underwear and tights, can actually be made from old fishing nets and carpets. This summer knit is made (in part) from the latter

     

    7

    H&M Conscious

    Shirt Dress£ 39.99

    A modern, pared-back shirt dress made from Lyocell, a renewable material that comes from wood sources requiring little or no irrigation or pesticides, making it a more sustainable option than cotton

     

    8

    Mango Committed

    Leather Sandals£ 49.99

    Every summer wardrobe needs simple slides, and this leather pair are manufactured from materials originating from animals destined for the human food chain 

    9

    H&M Conscious

    Knitted Skirt£ 19.99

    We love pairing knitted separates: the skirt fabric includes recycled polyester, which is made from oil-based waste, such as PET bottles – a way of preventing plastic waste from ending up in landfills

    10

    Fisch

    Select Leopard-print Swimsuit£ 190

    Having witnessed the damaging effects of abandoned waste first-hand, Fisch founder Agnes Fischer cuts her swimsuits from sustainable Econyl fabric, which is woven from re-purposed fishing nets and then hand-painted with leopard spots

     

    11

    Mango Committed

    Organic Cotton Long Jumpsuit£ 69.99

    A classic jumpsuit is one of the easiest ways to look polished in seconds, and we love the minimalist design of this one, made from 100% organic cotton

     

    12

    Ninety Percent

    Ribbed Organic Merino Wool Sweater£ 290

    The label’s name, Ninety Percent, refers to the proceeds it donates to charity with every sale. We love the flattering cut of this organic, merino wool jumper

    13

    Muuñ

    Rita Straw and Striped Cotton-canvas Tote£ 140

    Protecting artisanal production is important too. Muuñ bags are hand-woven from dry stalks of grain and hand-dyed using traditional organic pigments in Ghana, then finished in Paris

    14

    J. Crew

    Vintage Straight Eco Jean£ 100

    A straight-leg cut will never be out of fashion, and this pair is made from sustainably dyed organic Italian cotton and produced in an eco-friendly denim factory that uses renewable energy and recycled water

    Nicholas Kirkwood

    Beya Textured-leather Slingback Pumps£ 465

    These slingback pumps are made in Italy from sustainably sourced textured leather as part of an Earth Day capsule created just for Net-a-Porter
