Over the last few years, I’ve been trying to buy basics that are eco-friendly, sustainable, or ethically made.
Sometimes it’s so hard to meet ALL the criteria. Sometimes I can never know if the brand is really disclosing everything, or if it’s just another marketing ploy to sell to people like me?!
There is a 2018 Ethical Fashion Guide that you can download that rates brands and companies. According to the website, the guide is a “measure of the efforts undertaken by each company to mitigate the risks of forced labour, child labour and worker exploitation in their supply chains”.
I’m keen to feature it in another blog post, so I’ll talk more about it another time.
While trying to be conscious of ethics and environment, I’m quite particular with my style/fabric quality… and so I just love the effortless, casual, minimal and high quality items from Grana.
They are currently having a special Eco Sale, offering 20% off all eco-friendly styles with the code “ECO20”.
The sale features items made from French Organic Linen, Tencel (sustainably made from quick growing Eucalyptus trees, without pesticides or fertilisers) and Lenzing Modal (sustainably made from natural Beech tree forests).
I was gifted this Jersey Racerback Tank (French Organic Cotton) a few weeks back and I shared it on Instagram. But with this Eco Sale on, I wanted to share the photo on my blog too (not getting paid for this!).
I just love how it feels and it’s slouchy style. I wear it as a casual top for wearing out and about (mum duties!). I wear it to yoga / working out, over a sports bra top.
It’s a style that will last me for years. And by the feel of the material, it will definitely last me years too.
And you know what? It actually does make me feel a little proud that I’m wearing something good for the earth!
If you’re a new customer, and you want to buy a full-priced item, please feel free to use my code “karenxgrana” to enjoy 10% off your order and free shipping!
