Rethink Father’s Day
with Responsible Giving
Shopping for the dads in your life? Here are a few brands to get you started with Father’s Day gift ideas made from eco-conscious materials.
For the outdoorsy type
United by Blue is an outdoor brand with a focus on great quality, high performance apparel and gear. They use recycled polyester and organic textiles as much as possible. For every product sold, United By Blue removes one pound of trash from our world's oceans and waterways — that’s added up to over 1 million pounds of trash removed since 2010.
For the shoe & accessory fanatic
Nisolo is shoe brand that focus heavily on ethical production and pushing the industry in a sustainable direction. They pay higher than the fair trade minimum wage and are committed to improving the lives of their workers. For every purchase made, a contribution is made to help protect forests in the Amazon Basin. They have partnered with Ecosphere to implement an insetting program to help with deforestation and creating sustainable livelihoods for indigenous populations.
For the laid-back dad
Alternative Apparel focuses on sustainability and ethical production throughout their supply chain. They use oxo-biodegradable mailer bags, a vendor recycling program, and adhere to Fair Labor Association standards. Their materials are sustainable as well, using organic cotton, post-consumer recycled polyester, and low impact dyes.
For the beach & surf lover
Fair Harbor couples a care and concern for the water with a love of surfing. Their signature boardshorts and swim trunks are made using post-consumer recycled plastic bottles, transformed into functional fabric at factories they visit personally and regularly. Fair Harbor creates a full range of stylish and thoughtfully designed clothing and swimwear from unique and sustainable materials.
