In spite of inflation and the rising costs of goods in nearly every industry, consumers around the world are making a conscious move towards shopping smarter and more sustainably in an effort to help the environment. According to Ecothes, approximately 60 percent of millennials have expressed interest in shopping for sustainable brands that prioritize ethical manufacturing processes, work to save natural resources, and reduce production waste. If you're shopping for wardrobe basics and are looking to invest in better quality and better-for-the-environment pieces, here are four items to pick up during your next trip to a clothing shop.

1. Denim

A good pair of jeans can withstand the test of time. Choose the wash, fit, and style that make you feel confident and ready to take on the day. The best denim can be worn all day and into the night, no matter what you're up to. Find a sustainable clothing shop with high-quality denim that's worth the investment.

2. Basic Tees

Basic tees are great for layering and versatile enough to wear at work, school, or anywhere in between. Layer over a sweater and a jacket in the winter, or wear it with your favorite pair of shorts in the summer. From the board room to soccer practice, basic tees are wearable and easy to dress up or down.

3. Classic Flannel

Whether you toss it into your beach bag for when the sun goes down or snuggle into it as you cozy up by the fire, a classic flannel shirt is a wardrobe essential for both men and women in all different climates. You can choose from bright, bold prints, or neutral colors that can be worn in a variety of ways during the year. Sustainable flannels are typically made from 100% recycled cotton and polyester fabrics. Flannels you can wear year-round are lightweight, moisture-wicking, and super-soft.


No matter the climate, a windbreaker can keep you comfortable in any season. Whether you're spending time outdoors in the early morning or the late evening, a windbreaker is a fashion-forward way to look put together, and it's easy to take on and off when the weather changes.
