It’s a new school year, maybe even a new school this time around - why not use this opportunity to re-make yourself? New clothes, new sheets, gym ware too since athleisure is all the rage.
Sure, new clothes make you look and feel like a superstar, but the fashion industry has a long track record of unsustainable sourcing and outright deplorable working conditions. Ditch fast fashion and make Fairtrade the hot look on campus this fall. Feel good about your purchases and shop products that aren’t just stylish but also gentle on the earth!
We love that ethical fashion is now trending but SKFK, your new favorite fashion brand, are among the original trendsetters. SKFK is a brand designed for women who care about sustainability and quality. SKFK embodies the slow fashion movement, sourcing recycled and re-purposed materials for their beautiful modern collections. SKFK also recognizes their role as a fashion brand in combating climate change - every item on their store details its carbon footprint compared to the industry average showing in real numbers how their brand impacts the planet vs. conventional.
