There has been a massive shift towards sustainability in recent years, as many of us are consciously making changes to reduce our carbon footprint.
Sustainable fashion often has a stigma associated with it that it isn’t stylish; however, this is certainly not the case.
From podcasters to shop-owners, we’ve compiled a list of six sustainable fashion influencers you NEED to follow for inspiration on social media.
Kara O’Sullivan and Johanna Dooley (@greensaregoodforyou)
Kara O’Sullivan and Johanna Dooley established Dublin-based fashion rental service greens are good for you, which allows customers to consume fashion more sustainably by renting and returning their outfits instead of buying them.
Customers can choose whether they want to rent a piece for 3, 5, 7 or 10 days by visiting their new store at 6 Royal Hibernian Way, or online at www.greensaregoodforyou.com.
The stylish duo, who have amassed over 18,000 followers on Instagram, regularly showcase gorgeous sustainable outfits to suit every fashion sense.
