MERCI BEAUCOUP

    I’m very glad that most of these are made of naturally vegan materials! I feel like often products touted as “vegan” are just made of synthetics derived from petroleum, which is not that great, from an ethical and environmental standpoint.

    So, the polyester-rayon-spandex Everland sweater is a little out of place. What got it on this list, I wonder?

  2. PHILIP FLORANCE says:

    I agree with annamh about the Everland sweater. To be really eco-friendly, are natural dyes being used in these garments, or at least ethically produced synthetic dyes.

  3. Jasmin Malik Chua says:

    Hi @annamh, Everlane’s sweater is made in Los Angeles—we consider domestic manufacturing an ethical and environmental plus.
