EcoCult is a fresh, clean-cut sustainable and ethical fashion blog that is basically a one-woman show. Run by Alden Wicker, EcoCult is full of high-quality posts on a wide variety of topics pertaining to city life, sustainable and ethical fashion, non-toxic beauty, shopping locally, organic food, eco-friendly home design, education, fashion, sustainable lifestyle and much more! Of course, you will also find the occasional guest post, which serves as a bit of spice added to the mix of general goodness.
According to Alden Wicker, people should be focused on their own personal style, and choose pieces that flatter them, instead of blindly following the current trends. Once they have decided what is important to them, they should stick to their guns; cruelty-free, vegan, sustainable, ethical, local or artisanal fashion are all very relevant and viable options for today’s conscious consumers. She also offers a shopping guide to help her readers stay true to their ideals without cutting down on style!
Megan O’Malley and Gab Murphy are two gorgeous ladies who have taken it upon themselves to walk through Southeast Asia for a year, in order to learn about the people who make clothing, get to know the artisans and learn their stories. They are also interested in connecting with people and cooperatives who are resisting the model of fast fashion, and their goal is to bring this side of sustainable and ethical fashion to light. And the best part? They are going to be filming the entire way!
Their blog is full of beautiful videos and well-written, uplifting posts about the people they meet (Humans are Great), along with articles about any issues they feel they need to draw attention to. So hop on over to Walk Sew Good’s blog for a healthy dose of optimism and spunk!
p.s. They did a piece on Wild Tussah with Danica – check it out below!
Eluxe Magazine is the world’s first paper and digital publication that’s fully dedicated to sustainable luxury. Unlike other sustainable fashion publications, this one loves all things that are super luxurious, whether they’re solar powered yachts, haute couture made from recycled fabrics or very special organic beauty brands with the most exquisite ingredients.
Owned and run by Chere Di Boscio, an editor of glossy magazines in Paris, Dubai and London for many years, Eluxe has very strict criteria for what they consider ‘sustainable’ and while they’re highly elegant, they also have a bit of a ‘punk rock’ side – they’re not at all afraid to call out brands that greenwash, or condemn ‘vegan leather’ for being harsh on the planet, for example.
The magazine promotes healthy, holistic lifestyles and is focused on veganism; new vegan recipes are published every week online. They also love animals and donate 10% of their annual profits to animal welfare.
Wild Tussah was recently featured in 7 Ethical Fashion Brands Moving Into Your Home for our Home Decor line, which includes pillowcases that feature both vintage and new artisan-made textiles from Vietnam, hand-made wallhangings and ceramic mugs, bowls and saucers.
Anuschka is a Berlin-based writer, who also blogs about how to curate the perfect ethical and sustainable wardrobe. She promotes adhering to your unique personal style, investing in a few high quality pieces (instead of fast fashion), and she strives to help her readers create their own styling sense, by explaining how style and fashion work. Her advice is always spot-on, which is partly due to her vast knowledge about aesthetics and fashion.
Overall, Anuschka Rees’ blog is one of our utmost favorites, and you should definitely check it out!
