Have you ever been really excited after finding a cool sustainable clothing brand, only to close the tab dejectedly after looking at the prices? Well, you’re not alone. Sustainability is hard sometimes. And expensive.

But is there a way to buy cheap sustainable clothing? Yes, there is! And we have put together a list of 18 brands that offer just that. This way, you can care about the environment, as well as your bank balance.

But before we dive in make sure to bookmark our App featuring 1000s of affordable and ethically made fashion.

Why Is Sustainable Fashion So Expensive?

We have been led to believe that fashion, by itself, is cheap. This is not true; the costs are just hidden. Other than costing the environment, fast fashion cuts costs and perpetuates poverty by paying the workers less than minimum wage. The fabrics they use are also cheap since they can be synthetically manufactured. But the downside is the depletion of fossil fuels. So, you may not pay in money, but the cost of fast fashion is very high.

Sustainable fashion, on the other hand, pays each of their workers more than the living wage and makes sure they are treated fairly. Many brands handcraft their products, and this takes many, many hours. When the workers are paid properly, this tends to become more expensive. Sustainable fashion also uses organic, recycled, and ethically sourced materials, which cost more than conventional fibers.

So when you buy sustainable clothes, you are contributing towards fair wages for workers and a lower carbon footprint. But this also doesn’t mean that all sustainable brands are expensive. Some of them are working very hard to provide affordable options, and we compiled 18 of them for you below! We also included a helpful pricing range, but please note that is just an example and is not indicative of the brand’s entire product range.
