Did you know? Australia is one of the top countries running on renewable energy. The land down under is greener than you think, and recently many fashion brands in Australia have also embraced the eco friendly lifestyle. Here are the top 7 eco friendly clothing brands in Australia.
A BSCI and WRAP certified company, Nico aims to create garments using only organic and recycled cotton. The company has its production headquarters in Bangladesh and has been able to reduce the CO2 emissions by a huge margin due to its sustainable practices. Nico has been predominantly offering premium underwear to the Australian community but has also recently moved into other clothing departments such as pants, sleeves, and jumpers.
Premium garments using organic material and sustainable practices, this is what Organic Crew is all about. Based in Melbourne, the company has worked tirelessly to create a supply chain that follows all responsible practices and produces some of the most luxurious garments in Australia. However, being a premium brand, the prices for these garments also tend to be on the higher side, but if you’re willing to spend a few extra dollars then the quality is surely worth it.

A company that takes pride in bringing Australian made garments to the public, Vege Threads stresses on creating products from reusable and recyclable material only.
