Whether you just learned about the dark realities of the fashion industry and are starting your conscious style journey, or you’ve been in the slow fashion space a while and want additional learning resources, these sustainable fashion bloggers are worth following.
In addition to having varying focus areas, each of the the sustainable fashion blogs in this guide have their own voice, tone, and approach.
What is a Sustainable Fashion Blog?
An eco fashion blog is one that focuses primarily on the environmental impact of fashion. This might include thrifting tips, sewing and mending hacks, textile information, and resources for buying less and supporting ecologically conscious brands. Eco fashion bloggers might also talk about other elements of a sustainable lifestyle from food to home to travel.
A slow fashion blog is likely more focused on slowing down consumption of fashion. Topics could include how to buy less and make mindful purchases, insights into what makes a garment high quality, and how to remix your existing wardrobe to create fresh outfits. Many slow fashion bloggers talk about capsule wardrobes and embrace minimalism in other elements of their life as well. They also probably share content on slow living too.
An ethical fashion blog considers fashion’s impact on people and will explore the social justice issues in the industry and advocate for an intersectional sustainable fashion future. Ethical fashion blogs might have a particular focus on topics like living wages, consumer activism, and fair trade fashion brands.
Of course, all of these topics and issues intersect. Some blogs about sustainable fashion might cover all of these subjects, while others might focus on one area but still bring in other topics from time to time.
Now, without further ado, let’s get into this roundup of some of the best sustainable fashion blogs!
