Making better shopping decisions when it comes to my clothes and closet is one thing I’m working on since I advocate for conscious beauty shopping. Our options for fashionable, sustainable, and cruelty-free Clothes and accessories are getting better each year as more companies turn up to meet our changing demands.

Here are six eco-friendly accessory companies that have captured my attention.

Nordgreen watch

1. Nordgreen Eco Watches

With its tenets of Scandinavian minimalism and sustainability, Copenhagen-based Nordgreen has created a selection of stylish eco-friendly watches.

One of the core reasons why Nordgreen came into existence is because they couldn’t find a watch that embraced the ideals of sustainability, kept to the ethos of preserving the planet, and contributed to the wellbeing of lesser privileged societies. 

You can choose vegan leather and donate to an organization of your choosing from:

  • Restoring 200 square feet of Amazonian rainforest in Latin America
  • Contributing to a month’s free education for one child in India
  • Providing two months’ clean water for a resident in the Central African Republic

Besides impeccable design standards, Nordgreen is passionately committed to solving social and environmental challenges for global communities and our planet. Shop Nordgreen here.
