Sustainable Style by SP

The clothes you wear speak volumes beyond the way you look. You have tremendous power to shape the world around you by being mindful of the brands you choose to buy.  


Companies that offer same-day delivery and brands who produce fast fashion make it easy to shop without thinking. Such conveniences prioritize short term satisfaction over sustainability, and make us forget to ask these important questions:


How well does this brand treat its workforce? 

Are its workers compensated fairly?

How does this brand use its profits?

Is the item manufactured sustainably? 

Is it biodegradable?

How long will this garment last? 


Not everyone has the time or resources to fully understand the provenance of every item they buy. As a seasoned fashion stylist, I would like to share my knowledge of brands, companies and trends so that you have all of the answers. 


Sustainable Style by SP can be your one stop destination for information on brands you can feel good about buying.  We do the research for you and will recommend only brands that are currently or, making verifiable efforts to improve the way they do business.  Our criteria include:


Cruelty Free/Vegan- no harm has come to an animal in the testing or manufacturing of the product


Handmade/Artisanal- promoting handcrafted, time honored techniques 


Organic- no chemicals or pesticides are used to grow or treat the material


Low Water Consumption- reducing or eliminating the amount of clean water used to grow or manufacture the material


Recycled/Upcycled- new techniques allow synthetic materials like nylon and polyester to be recycled and materials to be made out of water bottles


Made in the USA- products that are locally made promote local jobs and cut down on the carbon impact of long distance shipping


Charitable Giving- brands that give back to the community or support charities


Fair Trade- brands that have fair pay and good labor practices for their employees, factory workers and supply chain


Slow Fashion- produced in limited qualities, often from deadstock materials that would otherwise end up in landfill
