Spring has come early! At least, that’s how it feels in my part of the North East. Because of this, my mind has been heavily on Spring wear, fun, and bright manicures, and transitioning my wardrobe from Winter to Spring essentials. I’ve been browsing some beautiful dresses and since it’s been one of my goals to do my best and shop sustainably when possible, I’m sharing some fantastic sustainable dresses that are all under $50!
If you’re like me and are excited for Spring to come around you’ve most likely been browsing your favorite stores looking for some beautiful Spring dresses!
Now, sustainable fashion is considered more expensive and the reason for that is its raw material costs, and many sustainable fashion brands will support a nonprofit charity. Keep in mind that using recycled materials is an expensive cost to the brand. However, after browsing some amazing brands, here are some sustainable dresses for Spring that will surely make you feel good and won’t break the bank.
What Does It Mean For Clothing To Be Sustainable?
There’s a rise in sustainability and sustainable fashion. Perhaps due to people becoming more aware and wanting to be more consumer conscious. Unlike fast fashion Sustainable fashion brands such as Able, For Days, Quince, and many others are producing clothing that reduces the impact on the environment. By using environmental fabrics such as bamboo textile, organic cotton, Tencel, and bamboo linen (just to name a few) they’re able to achieve this.
But Sustainable fashion goes beyond just the fabrics. It’s also a way for employees to be treated fairly, work in a safe environment, and receive fair wages. So it’s both ethically made and environmentally friendly.
