10 Ethical Festival Fashion Brands to shop without compromising “cool”
Festival season has started. Ultra and Coachella have already happened in Florida and California, and there are many more festivals with amazing line-ups scheduled for this summer. I myself, love a weekend away to enjoy some of my favorite bands, dj’s, and good vibes, but it’s important to be a conscious festival goer. Festivals, and particularly festival fashion, can be detrimental to the environment. So I’ve put together a list of some brands that provide great festival outfit pieces for the ethical shopper that you’ll also want to wear year around:
