Check out a few of our favorite sustainable, gender-neutral clothing brands to perfect your androgynous look while keeping the planet in mind.
We’ve compiled a list of gender-neutral clothing or accessory brands that try and tackle the environmental issues of fast fashion, each in their own way. This doesn’t mean that all of these brands have zero impact on the environment, or that they all actively work towards a change in economy. However: non-binary folks might have issues finding suitable fashion in the gender-binary culture we still live in — these brands offer better alternatives than throwaway-fashion brands that pick up every little microtrend.
It’s important that, even when buying ethically sourced and/or regional products, we limit our consumption in order minimize the environmental impact our clothing has. Read on to learn about some gender-neutral clothing brands that do their part by being vegan, organic, fairtrade, biodegradable, or recyclable.
1. Non-Binary Clothing: Telfar
Telfar is a New York company known for its dramatic NYC Fashion Week contributions. In 2020, the Telfar bag was even named the accessory of the year and has quickly become a coveted high fashion item.
Unfortunately, that means in order to get your hands on one of these iconic bags you’ll likely have to be patient, as they can take a while to ship. But they’re well worth the wait! The bag is also vegan and cruelty-free.
2. Lonely Kids Club
