Take a second to go outside. Close your eyes and really feel your surroundings. The breeze plays with your hair. Sunbeams warm the apples of your cheeks. Birds chirp melodically in the trees. Even in the simplest moments, Earth provides a safe haven—and we should do everything we can to protect it.
We live in a culture where new launches are coveted, where trends come and go with each season, where it’s more convenient to throw something away than find a new purpose for it. As the see-now, buy-now revolution rages on, we need to take responsibility for the products we bring into our lives.
This Earth Day (and every day), try to shop brands and products that prioritize sustainability, ethically sourced materials, and environmental contributions. Here are a few brands that give back to the planet so you can save the world in style.
Wool Runners in Mountain Bluebird
Allbirds builds its sneakers with sustainable materials such as eucalyptus and sugarcane. For Earth Day, the cozy sneaker company partnered with the National Audubon Society to release limited-edition colorways inspired by their feathered friends. All proceeds from the collection will support several climate-endangered birds.
