Sustainable Style Series: Mate the Label

Sustainable Style Series: Mate the Label

If there’s anything that we hope you know about us, it’s our dedication to sustainable fashion. We strive to continue finding the best in ethical brands for you, but we also want to take time to celebrate the incredible brands that we are lucky enough to partner with. So now that we are in the new year, we decided to start a new series to highlight how our favorite brands are focusing on creating the cleanest, most sustainable styles for you, starting with MATE The Label

You’ve heard some of the horrendous statistics before — the fashion industry is the second-largest contributor to pollution in the world, just after oil. It contributes a whopping 10% of global greenhouse gas emissions. And even more upsetting, 24% of insecticides and 11% of pesticides are produced through cotton farming. And beyond the global impact, there are also direct health concerns, like the more than 8,000 synthetic chemicals used in producing clothing. That’s where MATE The Label comes in. 

This Los Angeles-based clean fashion label makes it easy for you to find chic essentials that you can trust. Everything is made out of certified organic, non-toxic fabrics, and this isn’t just an empty claim. They only use GOTS (Global Organic Textile Standard) certified organic cotton, which is the highest standard in the world. In the interest of full transparency and education, they even have a page dedicated to all of the fabrics that they use, so you can know exactly what you’re putting on your body. 

Let’s bring it back to a large, global scale and toss in a phrase that we all know so well … carbon footprint. And the fact that MATE keeps theirs as small as possible. Based in LA, they keep every part of their production chain right in LA, and better than that, all of the warehouses are within 10 miles of each other. That’s right. Cutting, sewing, dyeing, shipping, you name it, and it all happens right there, and it happens up to fair trade standards to top it all off.

Mate The Label

This is the part of your clothing’s journey where you come in. After you purchase all of your favorites, they package them up with care in 100% recycled materials (and are working on creating a 100% compostable plastic bag as well). They are also in the process of creating a program where you can return your well-loved MATE goodies so that they can be turned into new products.

This female-founded fashion label is also predominately female operated, which is just one more reason why we are so glad to have them as part of our team and to bring their stunning styles to you. Keep an eye out for the newest MATE products and stay tuned to learn about more of our favorite sustainable fashion brands and comment below to share with us why you love shopping sustainably!

How to Have an Earth-Friendly Easter

How to Have an Earth-Friendly Easter

Holidays are no exception to being environmentally conscious – learn how to reduce your carbon footprint this Easter! Here are some tips to help you celebrate the green way.

1. Easter baskets are only used once a year – think about it!

Plastic Easter baskets are usually petroleum based, which means that money and resources are wasted from production to purchase. Swap that plastic basket out for a ceramic pot, eco sand bucket, or reusable tote.

Re-use woven baskets if you don’t already (the same goes for plastic eggs!). Woven Easter baskets can be stored in a cool, dry place like the garage, attic, or closet.

2. Skip the preservatives and high fructose corn syrup by opting for organic treats. You can either purchase from eco-friendly companies or make your own!

Lots of organic candies can be found on Amazon. Some good brands include Newman’s Organics, Green & Blacks, Theo, and Black Forest Organic.

If you’re feeling creative, try making your own candy.  That way, you can control the amount of sugar and cut out dyes and other unnecessary additives for good. This could turn into a fun activity for your littles as well.

3. Replace plastic Easter grass with shreds of 100% recycled paper. That annoying plastic grass often ends up clogging landfills. Make the change and go for Easter grass made from paper that’s been recycled.

Another option would be to grow your own patch of grass in a tin specifically to be used in your Easter basket. This will give off oxygen and turn any basic basket into festive décor with a twist.

4. Coloring eggs is an Easter tradition that can be adjusted to fit an eco-friendly lifestyle. Buying fresh organic eggs from a local farmer and using natural to dye the eggs are ideal for partaking in holiday festivities with consideration of our Mama Earth.

Instead of using food coloring and dyes, use the guide below to know which ingredients will help you achieve the egg colors you want!

Pink/red: cranberry juice, beets, raspberries, or rhubarb

Yellow: saffron, cumin, or turmeric

Purple: red wine or red onion skins

Blue: red cabbage leaves or blueberries

Brown: grape juice, rosehip tea, or coffee

Orange: yellow onion skins or chili powder

Green: spinach
