Want Love Need: Sustainable Launches and Labels You Should Know About

There are so many wonderful things going on in the world of sustainability, that I gather them up once a  month to present to you.

Love: Prinkshop x Accompany

Accompany has launched an exclusive sweatshirt design with prinkshop* to spread awareness of sex trafficking in the United States. The super-soft, American Apparel sweatshirts are silkscreened in a not-for-profit in the East Village which hires at-risk teens and trains them is in alignment with prinkshop’s core values. Accompany and prinkshop will give a combined donation of $15 per sweatshirt to 3Generations, a 501c3 not for profit organization dedicated to helping survivors tell their stories to the world.

Need: R.E.V. by rêve en vert

You can finally ditch the J. Crew tees! One of my favorite online stores, rêve en vert, has introduced a beautiful basics collection. R.E.V by is made out of certified organic pima cotton, grown outside of Lima in Peru. The line is manufactured locally at a certified fair-trade factory, priding itself on its ethical working conditions and high labour standards. All of the tags are made from recycled materials and the labels in each tee-shirt have been printed digitally on cotton. The dyes used are all low environmental impact dyes as well.

Need: Suntegrity

The 5 in 1 moisturizing sunscreen is incredible. It smells wonderful, and the non-toxic formula gives a lovely light, moisturizing coverage that serves as an excellent foundation for makeup. I’ll be using it every morning moving forward! You can buy it online at Drugstore.com or pick it up in person at ABC Carpet & Home in NYC.

Need: A Wool Story

I met this cool girl behind this upcycled brand at the BF+DA launch party. She scours NYC vintage shops looking for formerly-expensive knits sweaters that have some sort of defect, and turns them into hats and mittens.
