A point of pride in the Stella McCartney collection: Loop sneakers. Made of recycled materials, which are produced using 50% less energy, the sneakers feature interlocking clips and threads (versus glue), allowing them to be easily taken apart for recycling at the end of their use. The result is a product that “closes the loop” on the production cycle, conserving the planet’s natural resources and utilizing existing materials.

CLOTHES THAT FIGHT CLIMATE CHANGE

Eileen Fisher

Eileen Fisher was already an eco-fashion leader when it launched Responsible Wool in 2018. Now the company has set the bar even higher by introducing Regenerative Wool, a fiber farmed in a way that actually restores grasslands in Patagonia and fights climate change. By working with sheep farmers who use progressive animal-welfare and land-management practices, Eileen Fisher is helping change the way wool is produced to benefit the planet.

Sheep were once considered a contributor to land degradation, but now they provide an invaluable solution. By guiding herds to graze in a more natural pattern, they aerate the soil and add nutrients back into the land. It’s just one way this brand is ensuring a positive impact on the environment for future generations.
