6 Kids Raincoats Made From Sustainable Fabrics

6 Kids Raincoats Made From Sustainable Fabrics| Made With Sustainable Fabrics, Recycled Fabrics

Getting wet is fun, but what about the days when we want our kids to be able to watch the storm without getting soaked? A kids raincoat is a must-have for these occasions. We’ve chosen our top picks made from durable, sustainable fabrics that also offer versatility for little ones. You’ll find fun prints to nourish imaginations, classic neutrals, and bold colors suitable for every individual’s style.

A Cute Classic: The Kids’ Yellow Raincoat

On children, the yellow raincoat is a distinctive piece for it’s timeless, classic, and adorable look. To showcase the style, we’ve chosen Mini Rodini’s Kids Windbreaker, which features ethically sourced, recycled fabrics. It offers cool, British styling for your little one’s wardrobe.

Recycled Fabrics

Many kids windbreakers ensure a waterproof finish with recycled fabric. This also makes them more sustainable as it creates a circular-loop process that diverts plastic from the environment. Consequently, ocean-bound plastic can get a second life as a useful piece of clothing. Boden Kids’ Waterproof Parka features recycled filling to create a cozy padding that’s complete with a fun print to support your little one’s imagination. Primary Kids Clothes offers a similar, slightly padded jacket made entirely of recycled ripstop polyester. All children can enjoy Primary’s gender-neutral offerings. Their lightweight jacket in particular, shines as a bright, stylish, and comfy design that’s 100% kid-oriented.

Faire Child’s innovative kids rain jacket is a byproduct of their “Endlessly Reusable” ethos and production model. Yarn spun from recycled plastic bottles forms the base for their high-performance fabric and raincoats. When the garment is no longer wearable, Faire Child offers a program for customers to send back the piece so it can be recycled again.

Looking for something without plastic though? Check for our Plastic-Free tag on clothing items. Consider The Simple Folk’s raincoat, which uses a natural wax to water-proof the organic cotton material.

Sustainably Sourced Vegan Bags and Purses

Sustainably Sourced Vegan Bags and Purses

Undeniably, the silhouettes of leather handbags have always been a fundamental influence in fashion. But although leather is a symbol of luxury, the processes behind these materials are often harsh for our planet and animals. With existing alternative practices, we have the proper tools to create beautiful choices with a greater intention. Here is our curated list of vegan bags and vegan purses, all sustainably sourced and curated for you.

Vegan Handbags

Hozen is a wonderful vegan accessory brand that offers dynamic colors of vegan crossbody bags. Their charismatic array of faux leather bags are excellent for your capsule wardrobe checklist.

Bags Made From Recycled Materials

It’s important to avoid vegan leather that is created with polyvinyl chloride, as these microplastic materials can be highly toxic. So we’ve included products that are materialized with biodegradable resources that divert from such consequences.

 

One high quality vegan alternative for leather is polyurethane, a biodegradable solution that significantly reduces our carbon footprints. The HFS Collective is another brand that includes recycled polyester and recycled plastic bottles in their production techniques. This eco-friendly initiative actively reduces plastic waste. 

Choosing vegan purses over leather is an amazing way to practice environmental mindfulness. With evolving practices and the encouragement of sustainability, it’s never been easier to find upcycled and cruelty free accessories.

Our Favorite Ethical Jewelry Brands

Our Favorite Ethical Jewelry Brands

Jewelry often feels like the most personal accessory one can wear. Sometimes we even own heirloom pieces, passed down from a beloved family member. So when deciding on something new to purchase, we should be picky in our selections. Here at GoodStuff we think it’s important to know whether or not the piece we’re coveting is eco-friendly, ethical, or sustainable. In our search, we discovered amazing and innovative ethical jewelry labels that are disrupting industry standards and creating gorgeous pieces. To that end, we present our collection of eco-friendly bracelets, sustainable rings, and ethical earrings. Each choice is sure to be worthy of your jewelry box.

Ethically Sourced Crystals and Ethical Gemstones

In an industry of blood diamonds and unethically sourced gemstones, we love to see brands disrupting this standard and creating pieces that use fair trade practices. At GoodStuff, we don’t think a piece of jewelry can be considered beautiful if it wasn’t made responsibly, with kindness to the earth and to the crafters. The brands featured here ensure responsibility in supporting artisans and provide transparent information on sourcing.

Upcycled Jewelry

Another great way brands are creating sustainable jewelry is by upcycling stones from older pieces and recycling gold from post-consumer sources. These materials, including gold or diamonds, are known to last for lifetimes, so reusing them never takes away from the quality, durability, or beauty of a piece. Further, upcycling creates no new demand for materials, and by extension, no new demand on the Earth’s resources. It significantly reduces energy usage as well.

While we like to provide a large range of designs for you to enjoy, remember each and every brand featured here is vetted for ethical and eco-friendly standards. No matter what strikes your fancy, rest assured it will be good for you, and good for the planet. From dainty gold jewelry to traditional rings, to more edgy jewelry, take some time to find something you really like. With our curation, there’s something beautiful and interesting for every style out there.
