Wear Your Conscience: 5 Michigan Shops to “Green” Up Your Wardrobe

If you’re striving to embrace a more natural lifestyle by eating organic and choosing green commuting options, you might want to take stock of your closet while you’re at it.

Clothing made from sustainable materials with fair harvesting and manufacturing practices is good for the planet and the people who work in the textile industry. For those with sensitive skin, garments made from natural fabrics could also be less irritating.

If you’re looking to fill your closets with more eco-friendly gear, here are five great shops around Michigan to help you make going green extremely fashionable:

Clothing Matters in Grand Rapids carries a wide variety of stylish apparel made from sustainably sourced materials with a commitment to socially responsible manufacturing.

Panara Imports in Marquette offers more than just clothing. “Friendly atmosphere, unique gifts, and beautiful clothes,” read a recent review.

Yana Dee in Traverse City features women’s and children’s clothing made from organic, natural, and salvaged materials.

Perpetua Boutique Organique in Ann Arbor specializes in sustainable, environmentally-friendly, organic clothing for women and men.

Our Greentopia in Berkley is an eco-lifestyle boutique and gift shop. Charming gift items complement a wide selection of organic bamboo, organic cotton and recycled polyester clothing.

We would run out of internet if we listed all the amazing vintage, resale, and consignment shops in the state, but they’re another great option if you’re looking to step out in style while reducing your environmental footprint.
