“Fast fashion might be cheaper economically but comes at a huge cost to the environment, people and animals”.

Forget about the American boy band, this next brand is the new kid on the block. Luna + Sun is the latest company to join the ethical and sustainable business bandwagon, and we’re delighted to be welcoming them to the Ethical Made Easy family!

Luna + Sun is a completely cruelty free, vegan friendly label, and does not use any silk, wool, cashmere, leather, or any other material that was once an animal’s coat in their productions. Plant-based fabrics adhering to the Standard 100 by OEKO-TEX are used for the Luna + Sun garments, garments that are made with an Ethical Clothing Australia accredited Brisbane manufacturer that ensures appropriate pay and safe working conditions for all employees. Linen, one of Luna + Sun’s fabrics of choice, is completely biodegradable, and was also chosen because of its durability and longevity. Linen is basically like us girls: if you take care of it and treat it right it’ll stay with you forever.

Now, let’s talk about packaging. Riveting, right? No but seriously, packaging is a massive contributor to our overflowing landfills. It is estimated that, by the year 2020, global parcels will exceed 100 billion—*insert screaming emoji here*—and unless companies start tackling this massive problem, it’s only going to get worse. It’s a dang good thing that Luna + Sun only use a 100% certified compostable, non-plastic mailer, and send your goodies in a linen tote bag that is totally reusable (and totally cute, too, by the way).

Don’t even get us started on the founder, Teshani. We don’t just trust Luna + Sun for the obvious commitment to ethical and sustainable practices embedded into its very core, but also because of Teshani. When Teshani says that she wants Luna + Sun to be driven by her customer base, she completely means it, and we know she’s willing to do everything in her power to give her customers the best shopping experience she possibly can. You go, girlfriend.

As if this incredible company couldn’t anymore, well, incredible, they also donate 1% of their profits to a selected charity focusing on helping animals, people, and the environment—this year it’s trusted Australian conservation organisation, World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF)—and they have become one of Australia’s first sustainable fashion labels to partner with One Tree Planted and give us customers the option to plant a tree or two with our Luna + Sun purchase.

Basically, Luna + Sun is a thriving new clothing company doing everything they can to ensure everybody in their supply chain, from the wonderful garment workers to you, the super awesome conscious consumer, is happy. Teshani and the fabulous Luna + Sun team are joining the fight to re-write what it means to do fashion, and with our ongoing support, we can help them do so.

“I don’t think it’s fair for another person to have to suffer so we can have something new to wear at our next big event. I started to ask these questions to the companies that I bought my clothes from and I was shocked at how many companies didn’t respond or told me that for privacy reasons they couldn’t give me any information”.
