One of the pioneers in the sustainable fashion space. Reformation’s commitment to minimizing waste, water and their energy footprint is nothing short of admirable. The brand was founded in 2009 as a vintage clothing company and quickly expanded into a lifestyle brand loved by influencers, celebs and more. Every effortlessly chic silhouette is made from low-impact materials, rescued deadstock fabrics and repurposed vintage clothing. Make sure to check out their dress section before going to your next wedding – you won’t be disappointed.

Aurate’s brand tagline is Set the Standard – and that’s exactly what they’re doing. Not only do Aurate’s Instagram-worthy designs sparkle, they’re made with 100% recycled gold and designed and manufactured in New York City. If they’re sustainability efforts weren’t reason enough to love this brand they’re just as committed to making beautiful, high quality jewelry accessible to everyone with the most fair prices in the industry. By keeping design and manufacturing in the U.S. there are zero import taxes, middelman up-charges or unnecessary markups. Their philosophy is “fine jewelry deserves fair prices” and we couldn’t agree more.

Fewer, better is Cuyana’s philosophy which makes it Iris&Romeo’s closet counterpart. With an incredibly curated, capsule approach to clothing, bags and more Cuyana creates timeless styles for the modern woman using only the highest-quality materials. Each piece is handcrafted in Europe by skilled artisans and craftsmen who have maintained ancient traditions throughout the centuries. The brand also gives back by partnering with thredUP – each shipment includes a pre-paid thredUP label to encourage consumers to pare down their closets and embrace their Lean Closet mentality.

These prints don’t lie and neither do we when we praise Niyama Sol. Made with recycled plastic, this bold and chic activewear line is made for those studio-to-street days that start with hot yoga and end with a three-hour brunch. Each limited-edition print is inspired by ancient yoga wisdom and modern aesthetics to express individuality and style. Oh, and did we mention they’re J-Lo approved?

Take your sustainability game to the streets with Ettitude, a 100% organic bamboo company that features a signature sateen that’s literally a dream. The company’s mission to create bedding that is “as soft as silk, as sustainable as hemp, as breathable as linen, but at the price of cotton” and that’s exactly what they do with their wide array of high quality linens. Each piece is sustainably sourced and packaged and works to reduce water waste, chemical use and more.
