"Sustainability shouldn’t be a blame game...we should champion every little step companies are taking in the right direction."

"It’s no secret that fashion takes a toll on the environment. We are highlighting champions and brands that are leading the way toward a sustainable future by helping make more conscious choices."
Marie Claire Creative Director

NRDC creates solutions for lasting environmental change, protecting natural resources in the United States and across the globe. Its Clean By Design initiative works with major apparel retailers and brands to use their buying power as leverage to clean up the factories in their supply chains. Experts study textile mills abroad and identify simple ways to reduce pollution and cut water, chemical, and energy use while saving money.
Americans toss about 85% of their clothes every year. Consider donating clothes to charities, selling online or on consignment, textile recycling, or hosting swaps.
