"Tentree is one of my favorite sustainable brands that I wear almost daily; they plant 10 ten trees for every purchase (hence the name)," says lifestyle influencer Steven Fingar. "Not only are the products great to wear and priced accessible, but the ethos of the company is also around sustainability—from sourcing materials to manufacturing and traceability." To add, the minimalist-style brand has been carbon neutral since 2020 and has planted almost 85 million trees to date. As for what Tentree's best at, Fingar recommends their t-shirts which can be dressed up or down; their editors-tested pants, jackets, and joggers are also a standout. Some of their signature looks are available on Amazon.
Founded by surf legend Kelly Slater, Outerknown is all about sustainability and transparency. They use recycled materials, organic cotton, and other sustainable fabrics to create stylish and comfortable clothing. Their bathing suits are amazing and easily available on Amazon.

It is Fair Trade certified, part of the Fair Labor Association, has kept almost 2000 garments out of the landfill, already set its sustainability goals for 2030, is one of the first brands to make swimwear out of ECONYL, and even makes buttons out of recycled ocean plastic.
