Sustainable, fair, environmentally conscious and yet super stylish. Sustainable fashion is currently all the rage. We'll show you the coolest eco-fashion labels.
Better environmental awareness is a big issue around the world right now. And sustainability is also playing an increasingly important role in the fashion world. No wonder that numerous fashion labels are currently springing up that offer beautiful AND fair fashion.
Anyone who thinks of boring eco looks now is absolutely wrong. Because sustainable fashion not only protects our planet and is produced under fair working conditions, but can also look really cool. Here come the most beautiful eco-fashion labels that prove that fashion can be beautiful and fair at the same time.
What does sustainable fashion mean?
Sustainable fashion labels almost exclusively use organic and recyclable materials such as organic cotton, lyocell and natural fibers for their range. They also pay attention to socially acceptable working conditions, fair wages and also refrain from using animal products such as fur or leather.
A sustainable production process is also important to fair brands. This is to reduce harmful chemicals and prevent pollution of the air, water and soil. By using sustainable manufacturing processes, resources can also be saved and preserved.
Some of the green fashion labels also focus on traditional craftsmanship and only work with fabrics that would normally end up in the trash.
Sustainable fashion: how do I recognize fair labels?
Many consumers would like to shop more consciously. The problem: It is often not so easy to see who really offers sustainable fashion and who only does green washing to improve their image.
Our tip: Have a look at the clean clothes website.de at. There you will not only find tips on how to recognize fair fashion, but you can also find out about the various brands.
You can get a quick overview of sustainable fashion and online shops that only offer fair products here:

True to the motto "Because there is no Planet B ", the Spanish label Ecoalf fully concentrates on the reuse of raw materials and the liberation of the oceans from plastic waste.
Ecoalf works with an international network to get the high quality recycled raw materials. For example, 250 boats a day bring a total of 1.3 tons of marine litter ashore for the fashion label. And even fishermen give their old nets to Ecoalf instead of throwing them into the sea.
In the Ecoalf range you will find clothing, accessories and shoes for women and men: the "Ocean Waste " sneaker, which does not require any toxic glue and is made from recycled plastic bottles and algae, down jackets made from innovative materials such as Primaloft, flip-flops old car tires or swimwear made from recycled PET bottles that are fished out of the sea in Thailand.

If you are looking for sustainable swimwear, you will find it at Woodlike Ocean. What is special about the label: Woodlike Ocean's bikinis and swimsuits are made from old fishing nets and other waste that is found in the sea.
How it works? The material Econyl yarn, which cannot be distinguished from new nylon, is obtained from the fishing nets.
But Woodlike Ocean inspires us not only with its environmental friendliness, but especially with its modern and feminine designs. You shouldn't miss them for your next beach vacation.

In addition, organic fish leather is often used here. This is made from old fish skin that would normally be disposed of as a waste product.
The styles are classic and modern at the same time. There are, for example, booties with a star print, lace-up shoes in a metallic look, but also clean models in black. In addition, you can currently find hip belt bags and mega beautiful waist belts in the range of Nine to Five.
