While somewhat late to the sustainability party, the fashion industry has finally started reevaluating its carbon footprint in recent years — a huge step in the right direction for an industry whose production makes up for approximately 10 percent of humanity’s carbon emissions. But committing to more sustainable manufacturing processes is just one piece of the puzzle. Consumers and the choices they make can also have a huge impact on the fashion sphere by eschewing “fast fashion” choices in favor of more sustainably savvy finds.
Of course, it’s not always easy to find the perfect combo of eco-conscious attire and trendy style. Lucky for us all, there are many in the industry who have made a commitment to a greener, more fashion-forward future. That’s where the Sak comes in.
Brands like The Sak have proven themselves quite willing to implement more eco-friendly methods. A B Corp Certified company that’s high on both style and quality craftsmanship, this super stylish brand has also made a commitment to switch to only 100-percent sustainable materials by 2024, further cementing their aim to create a positive impact on both the global economy and the planet.
It only takes one look at the brand’s spring bag collection to see that there are no unattractive burlap sacks here (though burlap is both biodegradable and a sustainable natural product, it’s also not the most attractive fabric out there). Instead, these super cute spring offerings from The Sak are both stylish and sustainably sourced: a winning combo in the fashion world and a refreshing find to earth-conscious shoppers everywhere.
Below are some of the brand’s sassiest satchels that are sure to make a splash in closets everywhere this spring and summer:
