Celebrate Earth Day In Style

A few L.A. brands have taken the recycled clothing concept to a new level of eco-consciousness

Want to show off your eco-fabulousness? These everyday pieces from L.A.-based brands have a back story you can be proud of. AG reuses plastic bottles, which are spun into a supersoft and durable yarn, for its “SustainBlue” jeans. The Alternative Earth line from Alternative Apparel is composed entirely of recycled fabrics.
With each purchase the company also plants a tree as part of its annual Earth Day campaign. MOVMT’s ballet flats, made from upcycled plastic bags, complete a look that’s casual and environmentally conscious.
