David Jones launches Mindfully Made so you can shop sustainably

It is widely understood that fashion is the second most polluting industry in the world (the first is oil, just in case you were wondering) but what isn't as straight forward is where or how to start your conscious shopping journey. One of the reasons for this is that the term 'sustainable fashion' is inherently loaded and to borrow from the beloved green ogre Shrek, it's like an onion in that there are many layers. To help you navigate the minefield, retailer David Jones has joined the likes of Net-A-Porter and The Iconic to launch a platform dedicated to share the stories behind conscious brands and makers to make it easier than ever to shop better. more

Wear your heart on your sleeve and support these Indigenous-owned-and-operated clothing labels

By now it's abundantly clear that simply liking or sharing a post declaring #BlackLivesMatter on social media is not enough. It's time to distill thoughts and intentions into actions. One small, but tangible, way you can do that is by actively supporting brands and companies that are Indigenous-owned-and-operated, or in support of local Aboriginal communities in Australia. Last week, we showcased some seriously amazing skincare and beauty brands (you can check it out here if you missed it), but this week it's about wearing your heart on your sleeve with clothing and apparel. Next week, we'll bring you some amazing pieces created by Indigenous and Aboriginal artists as well as handmade jewellery. These lists are by no means exhaustive and are intended as a starting point for you to continue your own personal journey of listening, learning and ultimately becoming a better anti-racist… more

Do good and donate unwanted stuff to Good Stuff Market’s virtual op-shop

All of this extra time at home has yielded some unexpected outcomes. For some, it's a newfound interest in baking whilst for others, isolation has meant time to tackle all of those annoying tasks you've been meaning to do – like clearing out the junk cupboard. You know the one, every house has one. That cupboard where you put all of the things that don't have a place. The only problem is, what to do with it all since the vast majority of op-shops are closed for donations for the foreseeable future. Say hello to Good Stuff Market – it's the virtual op-shop 2020 needs right now.  more

Veja and Rick Owens collaborate to create kicks with conscience

When it comes to sneakers, not all are created equal. Some (read: most) are made from various types of plastic and unsustainable rubber, which doesn’t bode well for you in terms of comfort but it’s also not great news for Mother Earth. Thankfully there’s a fashion-led alternative from French footwear company Veja and lauded fashion designer Rick Owens, who have come together for a second time to set a new standard for kicks with conscience. more

Bandsome is bringing menswear back to (sustainable) basics

It’s an exciting time for menswear – the once hard-and-fast rules of dapper dressing have been thrown out the window in favour of experimental style.

A good tee and a reliable pair of pants are the bread and butter of most men’s wardrobes no matter what they throw on top. Bandsome is a brand that understands this, so it’s dedicating itself to producing the best basics out there in sustainable style. more
