LNBF for Eco Fashion

LNBF for Eco Fashion via mindfulmomma.com

The truth behind the clothes we wear can be so depressing. What with sweatshops, resource-greedy fabrics, troubling production methods and such. But fun, affordable, eco-friendly clothing can be so darn hard to find. Seriously – it’s a lot tougher to green your wardrobe than it is your dinner plate.

Stylish Eco Fashion

Don’t you think it’s time for an eco fashion takeover?!! 

LNBF (Leave Nothing But Footprints) is a small Toronto, Canada based business designing seriously cute clothes made with eco-friendly fabrics and methods. With a mission to empower women to create a sustainable world for future generations, they create eco-friendly fashions that do not sacrifice on style, comfort or quality.

    Bamboo viscose uses less water and fewer chemicals than cotton and synthetics.

  • Their bamboo fibre is certified organic under the OCIA (Organic Crop Improvement Association).
  • Organic cotton is blended in some styles.
  • Manufactured in China under OEKO-TEX 100 certified mills and using third party audits to ensure safe working conditions and fair wages.
  • Mills use a closed-loop process which prevents anything toxic being dumped into the environment.
  • Bamboo is anti-bacterial, moisture wicking and hypo-allergenic.

Sorry but I couldn’t bring myself to post a pic of me wearing my Dawn Pyjama Set – but isn’t it cute?

Putting it to the test

I’ve been trying out a few items from LNBF to see how they wash and wear – the Emily Tunic, the Suri Leggings and the Dawn Pyjama Set. All three are primarily bamboo viscose with just a touch of spandex for stretch. The fabric is scrumptiously soft and it’s a perfect weight – not heavy at all but not so light as to feel flimsy.

The tags on all three items say hand wash but after speaking with the company and doing my own test I learned that machine washing is just fine. Line drying is important for best results and durability – although I’ve heard that the occasional trip through the dryer won’t ruin anything.

Comments

  1. I agree. The clothes market lags behind the food options. This is an area I am working on. They have some very cute stuff.

  2. You always find the coolest brands! I am open to more recommendations on eco-cool-clothing for kids! What they consider popular is often so un-eco-friendly, it’s frustrating – wish a fun, affordable line could get them interested in eco-fashion.

  3. I like the words “seriously cute.” I felt the same way when I discovered Synergy Organics line. So I can’t wait to try this fashion company’s line, too! 🙂

  4. I want to see more eco-friendly clothing and more fair wage/sweat shop free clothing like this.
