6 Local Fashion Brands Advocating For Sustainability
The sustainable movement has taken the world by storm in an effort to help save the planet. Brands have introduced products to the market in support of sustainability—including that of fashion. These brands began producing items that are both environmental-friendly and aesthetically-pleasing.
Here are some of the homegrown fashion brands that help promote sustainability while remaining trendy:

Lazy Fare also takes steps to lessen their carbon footprint. You can get their products from BeautyMNL or drop by their physical store located in Glorietta 1.
