Sustainable fashion has been on my mind for a while now and I am excited to bring you some of my favorite sustainable, ethical and eco friendly clothing brands for summer!

My word for 2019 was intention—intention, not perfection…with my choices of how I spend my time, money, resources, what I say yes to and what brands I purchase. I have been very careful and intentional purchasing mostly only organic cotton baby clothing for Remington, but finding sustainable, ethical and eco-friendly clothing for women is a bit harder.
