22 sustainable fashion brands that need a place in your wardrobe

These are the eco-friendly high street names to shop

There's never been a more important time to think about sustainable and ethical fashion. With climate change being labelled as a 'code red' for the planet, and mass overproduction filling our planet with unnecessary waste, fast fashion brands are coming under fire for their unethical practices.

Although the most sustainable wardrobe is the one you already own, sometimes your wardrobe deserves a refresh. Everyone from the royals to major celebrities are recycling, reusing, and shopping from small businesses to change the future of fashion forever.
