5 Sustainable Brands You Should Know About.
At Stay Sixty®, we champion brands that create quality, long-lasting products - brands who believe in slow-fashion and buying better less. We champion labels with real sustainable credentials, each of which is candid and transparent about its method and impact, following the three pillars of sustainability. We thought it was about time we commended some of our favourite sustainable clothing brands and how they're approaching their impact on our planet.
1) Riley Studio // Sustainable Gender-Neutral Staples.
On a mission to make conscious consumerism the norm, Riley Studio creates gender-neutral wardrobe staples and accessories. By sourcing recycled materials, and working with ethical partners, they are the definition of an eco-friendly clothing brand. Riley Studio also offers a free repair service for its items; simply send the sustainable fashion brand an email and they'll do the rest. What’s more, a reuse and recycle scheme means that if you’ve reached the end of the road with any of their items, they’ll organise returns so that no Riley Studio pieces end up in landfill.

2) Organics Basics // Eco-friendly Underwear & Activewear
Organics Basics produce eco-friendly underwear, activewear and essentials — all made ethically in Europe. They place sustainable thinking at the centre of everything - that means they only choose fabrics that care for our environment and only partner with factories that care about their impact, too. Designing everything to last meaning investing in quality fabrics and workmanship - but it also means designing with simplicity and function in mind. Something we can certainly agree on!

4) Far Afield // Sustainable Men's Fashion.
Sustainability has a number of different layers, not all of them focus solely on the environmental impact of a brand and its processes. Social sustainability is another key concern for Far Afield, the ethical Men's fashion brand taking a real stand when it comes to ethical sourcing. Far Afield takes an equally staunch standpoint to its eco-friendly materials only purchasing GOTS Organic Cotton or cotton accredited by the Better Cotton Initiative. The BCI works around 6 key sustainability principles: crop protection, water usage, soil health, bio-diversity, fibre quality and fair working conditions.
