There is still loads to be done to become more sustainable with our fashion, and of course it’s not going to happen overnight, which is why every baby step counts.
So when I spotted this playsuit in Zara the other day, I mentally high-fived the brand, who is known for its fast fashion.
First off, it’s a cute floral number with a 90s twist that is perfect for the heatwave we will hopefully have this summer. It comes in a trendy neon lime green and a more understated black and white, and is very flattering on.
Secondly, there is the fact that it’s made of EcoVeroTMViscose, which is certified by the EU Ecolabel and meets the environmental standards in the European Union, from the raw materials to manufacturing. In other words, it’s as ethical as it can get.
But what we really sold it for me (not even kidding, I bought it in both colours), is the fact that it comes with a matching scrunchie, which is made from the leftover fabric of the playsuit, to minimise waste.
Now that’s something worth shouting about.
