Each and every day, all over the world there are billions of destructive chemicals being forced into the atmosphere for the sake of producing clothing, accessories, shoes and other fashion related pieces. Though it is never wrong to look fashionable in the latest on-trend pieces and enjoy fashion as it comes and goes, it is never good to pollute the natural atmosphere for fashion, technology, beauty or any other reason.

We can all still remain just as fashionable before, though instead of using the more harmful and damaging resources and materials we can easily alternate to an eco friendly version. Fashion pieces can be made in smaller batches with the use of raw materials, manufactured with more basic methods of machinery or even better, made by hand.

Many producers of eco friendly fashion outsource from or source materials from small artisan communities where they source readily available materials. These producers use traditional methods of production such as basic machines or personal sewing machines. This form of production is not only better for the environment but will also give you a greater sense of appreciation for each eco friendly fashion piece that you purchase.

Well-known fashion labels such as Bassike, Yoganic and Sosume have based each of their seasonal ready to wear, comfortable and on-trend collections around the eco friendly, naturally resourced pieces. These labels all feature basic tees, denim jeans and uniquely designed garments that are still very on-trend and environmentally friendly.

Many of the raw materials sourced from the artisan communities and used in the eco friendly fashion are also helping to support small villages, families and the livelihood of people who are half a world away. By choosing to support the growth of eco fashion not only in Australia but all over the world will be nothing but beneficial for all of us.
