Leave Fast Fashion Behind in 2019 With These 15 Sustainable Clothing Brands

Fast fashion - mall stores like H&M, Forever 21, and Zara - may be cheap, but it's killing the planet and leaving millions of workers with unlivable wages and highly dangerous working conditions. Rather than continuing to support fast fashion, here are some ethical options to start your 2020 off right.


One of the first "outdoorsy" brands to embrace sustainability, Patagonia has been consistently ethical since 2011. Their clothing is well-made and perfect for anyone looking to get closer to nature while still preserving it.

United By Blue

United By Blue is another sustainable "outdoorsy" company, in a similar vein with Patagonia. However, they produce fewer items, encouraging lower consumption, which is the only real way to be truly sustainable.


You may have seen their ads on your favorite YouTube channels, but the hype is real. Their shoes are comfortable, ethical, and good for the environment. The perfect combination!

Krochet Kids

Krochet Kids provides sustainable basics at a reasonable price. If you ever need the essentials, be sure to check out Krochet Kids!


Sisterhood is a slow fashion brand with a fast fashion look. Their company is ethical, however some of their clothing is made from polyester and other synthetic fabrics. Be sure to wash with a microplastic bag!


PACT is another ethical brand that concentrates on stylish basics and activewear. Though not necessarily the most affordable, their products will last a lifetime.


Everlane has been all over social media lately, and for good reason. Their clothes are simple, timeless, and stylish, while still maintaining a great moral code.

Amour Vert

Amour Vert is pretty pricy, but their clothes are so beautiful it almost makes up for it. Perfect for any occasion!


Sezane is a brand I've been following since I first got into sustainable fashion. It blends French elegance with heartfelt ethics beautifully (literally).


Perhaps my favorite brand on this list, Kotn makes sustainability look effortless and cool. The simplicity of their designs makes the hefty price tag worthwhile!

Lucy & Yak

Lucy & Yak's dungarees are adorable, but they can be expensive. In order to get the best deal, check out their DePop!

We Are Hairy People

We Are Hairy People has some of the most unique and dynamic designs of all the brands on this list. Highly recommended!


If you like the Brandy Melville aesthetic, but disagree with their brand's message, Afends is the perfect alternative. Which and cute, but with a great code of ethics.

Oh Seven Days

Oh Seven Days is really expensive, but they use surplus fabric that other brands don't use, so who could ask for more? Just be sure to catch their sales!

Wild Fawn

The only jewelry brand on this list, Wild Fawn gives some off some Mejuri and Missoma vibes, just with better morals.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

There have been many lessons learned.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
