Eco-friendly fashion is no longer limited to your weird aunt’s plant-dyed linen pants (although we’re not exactly opposed). As the public becomes more educated on the virtues of ditching fast fashion, retailers are finally starting to deliver more socially and environmentally responsible options — which means sustainable style is starting to evolve in a genuinely stylish way.
Nordstrom is making their mark as one of the first major retailers to embody the ethics of sustainable fashion. Nordstrom’s newly launched Sustainable Style category features more than 2,000 items from 90 brands including Patagonia, Reformation, Veja and more.
This exciting launch accompanies Nordstrom’s commitment to the G7 Fashion Pact, a new coalition of 32 global luxury retailers aimed to fight the global climate crisis. This agreement serves as an important moment for the fashion industry as it stands together to address these complex global challenges and ensure a more sustainable future.
All items featured in Nordstrom’s Sustainable Style category are sustainably sourced, manufactured in factories that meet higher social or environmental standards, and many give back in some way.
