It’s time to be conscious while you’re keeping cosy with sustainable cashmere knits and recycled down coats.
Yes we know it’s Black Friday week and it’s hard to avoid the 7,000 emails offering (very tempting) discounts here, there and everywhere. But, with this being said, it’s all to easy to end up buying stuff you didn’t want, let alone need. Being more conscious with our purchases is something we should all be aiming towards to make sure we’re doing our bit for the planet. Ask yourself: would I buy it if it was full price? Do I already own something similar? And lastly, do I actually need it in my life? Now you’ve had the mum talk about your shopping choices, it’s time to look at the new eco-friendly limited edition edit from Zara.
We’re all for fashion brands thinking about their carbon footprint and trying to help source and create more sustainable items, which is why the eco-edit caught the eye of the fashion team. This and the fact they’re the two items the weather is making us all need: knitwear and coats.
A lot of the items on the Zara website now have the ‘join life’ tag and these are, ‘a selection made from more sustainable raw materials using processes that help take care of the environment’. Adding a carefully curated edit of knits made from 100% recycled cashmere, and down puffer coats made from stuffing that has been recovered from other used textile products makes us feel happier about adding to our winter wardrobe.
The neutral hue will go with any outfit you own – from jeans and a white shirt to a slip dress and knee-high boots.

The fashion team suggest everyone should own a navy sweater. As part of a classic capsule wardrobe, you’ll wear it so many times. The fact that this one is made from recycled materials gets an even bigger thumbs up.
