6 Fashionable Brands that are Eco-Friendly

Posted on November 10 2020

6 Eco-friendly fashionable brands blog post cover by Vancouver kid's wear boutique Aux Pays Des Chouchous.

Where to shop eco-friendly brands?

Look great, feel great.

It’s a motto that we stand by and make an effort to share with our communities. While many of us are aware about what to recycle, and the reduction of single-use plastics, the unfortunate reality is that many of us aren’t aware of what goes into the products we buy and use... especially with the clothes that we wear! 

The goods news is that we don’t have to stand idly by. Here at Aux Pays Des Chouchous, we wanted to make a special effort to carry and support some family designer items and wear that are part of the sustainable fashion movement - eco-friendly brands that care about their impact on the environment. Let’s take a look at some designer clothing collections that make that effort to save our planet, and value quality over quantity at the same time.


1. Eco-friendly Bags & Accessories for parents or kids

Sticky Lemon

Known for their bold colours and colour blocking designs, but today we want to give a special shoutout to their bags, which have their exterior made from 100% recycled PET (polyethylene terephthalate) bottles commonly used originally for packaging materials e.g. soft drinks & cosmetics.

Uashmama

Ever heard of washable paper? Neither did we until we found Uashmama. 

An eco-friendly answer to sustainable and consciousness living, check out their ‘carry one’ and ‘carry two’ bags. Featuring an oversized, foldable bag with either one or two attached woven straps for easy portability. They’re perfect for groceries, shopping, laundry, storing kid toys, and a stay at the beach! Their paper is made using a virgin fibre from cultivation and not through deforestation. Sustainability extends to sustainable use, finding new ways to use and reuse the simple paper bag.

2. Kids’ Home and Diningware

Raising a child and sustainable living can go together too. Having an infant can often mean using many single use products and other plastics that go to waste. But we’ve found two brands that are not only sustainable products, but specially designed with the safety of your child in mind.

Avanchy

From organic bamboo plates and bowls to similarly made utensils, you can find a whole collection of specifically made items for babies with Avanchy. Featuring suction plates and bowls, that’s one less mess you’ll have to clean up! The bamboo is 100% biodegradable, environmentally friendly, nontoxic, and coated with an FDA-approved, food-grade varnish. Made with, antimicrobial and antibacterial materials, plastic-free, BPA-free, PVC-free, lead-free, and phthalate-free. Nontoxic, hypoallergenic, and 100% safe for baby feeding.

Reale

Looking for something more fancy? Prepare to raise your pinkies with Reale’s dinnerware set. Made of safe biomass plastics that use antibacterial and antivirus raw materials (patent) containing more than 52% of Japanese bamboo. We all know that we could use the extra protection these days! The products (except for TRITAN glass) can tolerate microwaves and dishwashers.

3. Kids’ Clothes & Fashion

Mini Rodini

In our previous blog, Mini Rodini was one of top picks for sweater weather for good reasons. If you want a little bit of funk and comfort, Mini Rodini is a perfect solution especially when you’re looking for an environmentally conscious alternative. 

Girl's yellow knitted sweater with white heart patterns from Mini Rodini. Wide ribbed collar, cuffs, and waistband. It has a loose fit silhouette. Black denim jacket with leopard embroidery at the back, and Mini Rodini embroidered at the back waistband.  Blue organic cotton sweatshirt with a bold all-over striped design. The iconic panther logo is embroidered on the front. 

Mini Rodini is a Swedish brand that makes 99% of their products with sustainable materials, lessening the impact on both the environment and humans. Many of their products are made from organic cotton, grown without dangerous chemicals such as fertilizers, GMOs and pesticides.

Compared to conventional cotton, organic cotton is healthier for both the people who work with the cotton and for the end user. 

Molo

Molo’s eccentric patterned designs, often of wild animals and tropical leaves, show us that they love nature… and it’s also shown in their fabrics as well. 

Sweatshirt with plaid pattern blue, pink, and black dotted lines. Word "amare" embroidered at the right corner in red.  Green rainforest parrot print sweatshirt with front cropped waistband. Ribbed cuff, waistband, and neckline.    A stretchy and thin texture sweatshirt with crossing skateboard print patterns and paneled with black contrast. 

Molo is a Scandinavian brand that’s GOTS Certified. Not a lot of brands are GOTS certified, which means that the brand’s production process limits the use of toxic bleaches, dyes and other harmful chemicals. GOT’s is an internationally recognized certificate and is the toughest organic textile standard as it goes far beyond verifying the organic farming process, and including every step of manufacturing. 

Molo is a brand with an international mindset that creates imaginative, eco-friendly, and innovative kids' wear with colours, fun prints and bold combinations!
