Shop Sustainable For The Holidays
The climate crisis cannot be ignored. Every Friday, Milk will be focusing on solutions and stories from the environment’s biggest supporters; through essays, photo stories, updates on the latest technologies, and tips to combat the climate crisis, we’ve got you covered.
This week, we’re covering a sustainable pop-up here in New York this Sunday created by founder of THE SERIES clothing brand, Ella Wiznia and friends, where shoppers can browse emerging, sustainably-driven brands. THE SERIES is an Earth-conscious, one of a kind brand made for all bodies and beings, and they are just one of the shops you can find at this pop-up. Brands such as For Good Luck, BERRIEZ, SLUSH, Beepy Bella, ThankYou4That, and LAUGH BY LAFAILLE will also be in attendance for everyone to try on and shop. This holiday season, get a gift for the ones you love (or yourself) from a brand that supports our Earth. Meet the founders and designers behind these fun and funky brands that use only existing materials and support all genders, body types, and styles.
Looking for a cute handbag to brighten up your winter? SLUSH creates handbags made of faux leather and recycled materials. Still playful and luxurious, these handbags are sure to make a great gift for the bag lover in your life.
Everyone loves a good pair of vintage jeans. THE SERIES has vintage denim with their own twist. Hand-stitched patchwork on denim, using thread and materials from recycled plastic bottles. These jeans give you the high-end look in a sustainable way.
And if you’re looking to add a little more color and spunk to your wardrobe, For Good Luck has got you covered. Using re-purposed, vintage evening and bridal wear to make fun tops with a little 80s nostalgia. A perfect gift for the love in your life.
Instead of doing all your holiday shopping from your computer, come to the Sustainable Pop Shop this Sunday, or as Wiznia calls it “a fun social event!” On December 15th in the Lower East Side. Meet the creators and designers behind these brands and get the scoop about the sustainable characteristics behind their beautiful and unique clothes and accessories. Shopping sustainable is difficult to do with big monopolized companies, “the biggest thing right now is transparency,” says the brains behind this pop-up, Ella Wiznia. All the stores being represented at the pop-up this weekend are all transparent about the materials they use when making their products. When browsing one-of-a-kind denim, repurposed wedding dresses, or handmade beaded jewelry, be sure to stop and talk to the creators to find out exactly how it was made and come out of this pop-up with a gift for someone on your list, and insight into the brands that are taking over the fashion world.
