¨Av Norden was the result of founder Jenny Jackson’s long time pursuit to launch a venture that would contribute to a healthier, more responsible, and more collaborative fashion industry.¨ and that is exactly what Jenny is doing. We got to virtually meet Jenny recently and I am so blessed to get to know people as wonderful as her. Not only does she have a great eye for amazing products but all of the brands she works with are some of the best products on the sustainable market. I guarantee you will feel the same when you touch these fabrics and see the attention to detail these brands put in their clothing. This neck protector/mask/headband is really a great accessory to have, and it is quite comfortable to breathe through for those that have trouble with regular face masks. So wether you are looking for yourself or your little ones this platform Has some really special unique pieces.
Who doesn’t like to run through the woods like a fairy in a beautifully flowing skirt! We had so much fun taking these pictures and in these trying times isn’t that what its all about! This skirt is wonderful because you can wear it while lounging around the house or dress it up for the holidays with a pair of heels and the beauty of it is it is a timeless piece that can fit into anyones capsule wardrobe.
As simple as this sounds, how many times have you bought your kids pants with little draw strings, that for some reason do not actually work as drawstrings? Never made sense to me… Our son is lean and lanky and if he is not in diapers most pants will fall right off. Not these! The design of this particular outfit speaks for itself, so freaking cute right? But it is also functional, I can tighten the pants around his waist and the pants as well as the t-shirt have pockets. If you have a toddler you probably know how much they like to stow away their treasures. Any time I try and put other pants on him now he frowns and says ¨Mom!!! No pockets.¨ Not only does the adorable hat protect my toddler from the sun but we are constantly asked where we got it. I hope he does not grow out of it too soon!
Daddy is so special to our little one, while I thought I would be able to have the Mommy and son look going, He specifically said ¨No Mom!¨This is Daddy’s and my hat. Needless to say they both look way to cute in them for me to disagree.
Please stop by Av_Norden’s online store and support this project, Jenny has some fun new projects coming soon. Stay tuned!
AllBirds did something very innovative and uses merino wool as well as other natural fibers, like sugar cane and trees in the making of their shoes. They even came up with their own fabric ¨Trino¨ Trees and Merino. This makes for a durable and sleek looking fabric for their shoes. I love that AllBirds has no logos and really fits into the basics of what one requires from a shoe.
Not only does this store have an incredible selection of eco-friendly shoes for your every day sustainable lifestyle but they also have actual stores located all over the world. So if you are ever curious and feel inclined to try a pair you can probably source a store near you, but if that isn’t enough you can also order a pair online and if you are not satisfied can return them within 30 days no questions asked. That to me is some good customer service.
This brand also really prides itself on reducing its carbon footprint. ¨Our ambition is to be like a tree, leaving the environment cleaner than we found it.¨ It is so inspiring to see how they are working towars bringing those numbers to neutrality.
Everybody needs a good staple cardigan in their closet! I love the simplicity of this one and I really support brands that use merino wool, it has so many great qualities. It is a breathable fabric, anti bacterial, sustainable, temperature regulating and feels really pleasant against the skin. So for me a nice oversized cardigan gets a lot of use.
I really love the puffer jacket but it doesn’t make much sense for us here on Hawaii. However it will be a go to for upcoming winters in Germany, when we get to go back for Christmas, hopefully next year.
They really go above and beyond for their natural resources from the all new chitosan fibre for their t-shirts, a fabric is a natural odor fighter, to using recycled polyester for the fillings of the jacket.
Even the detail of the packaging has been thoroughly thought out, using 90% post-consumer recycled cardboard that serves as a shoebox, shopping bag, and mailer all in one. Now that is what I call efficient and who knows what else you can use the box for once it is at your house.
This is really a great place to get your every day basics, from shoes, underwear to colourful socks and feel really good about supporting a brand that is striving towards bettering our planet.
Sometimes a name can say so much…. Soul Flower is exactly that. A free spirited, comfortable, fun, family oriented brand with such attention to detail. Our order came with a hand written note, and a bag of awesome stickers and you could really feel the love. It was truly appreciated on this end. Soul Flower even has their own eco-friendly screen printing facility in house. They have so many wonderful uplifting prints. They have a huge selection of products from yoga wear to headbands to boho hippie chic jewellery, bags and accessories.
¨We seek inspiration in the simplicity of everyday life – in nature and in music, in free-spirited adventures and in like-minded souls. We create clothing in a way that supports our planet, spreads a positive message, and most importantly — helps you express yourself. You can make a difference with what you wear, so share the vibe and let your Soul Flower in our natural fiber clothing!¨- Soul Flower this is so eloquently put that I couldn’t really say it better.
¨Soul Flower is a natural clothing brand for kind souls and free spirits.¨ If you want to be uplifted and feel the positivity of a brand this is the one for you.
This is an absolute favourite for us! A really sturdy pair of pants, reinforced at the knees, all sustainable, durable and more importantly one that can grow with your toddler. These pants have a functional draw string (I have already mentioned the importance of that for me), pockets and you can fold them up, so your child can grow into them and have them for a few years.
We will be posting more pics periodically as he grows with them. If that is not enough they have a ¨Trade Up¨ program where you can send back your pants when your child grows out of them and they will give you a $15 store credit, repair your old pants and resell them at a cheaper price on their Pre- Loved section of their web, you have to be a subscriber to shop this page. I think that is a pretty amazing deal and truly sustainable. We are already looking into buying our second pair (I really like the light ones).
So no matter what your budget is this purchase is well worth your while. These pants are perfect for the child that skates, climbs trees, plays in the dirt and loves the outdoors! I highly recommend you stop by the Jackalo store for a truly sustainable, durable, awesome shopping experience for you and your little ones.
I always like to remind you, the reader, that supporting these brands really does help our environment and makes a difference, you can help by purchasing these brands or sharing this article with family and friends. Thank you for stopping by and being a part of the Eco Couple family!
