Every week we feature a sustainable brand on our blog. This week's featured brand is Zero + Maria Cornejo.
It's refreshing that Maria Cornejo, the brains and beauty behind Zero + Maria Cornejo is not afraid to admit that being completely eco-friendly is practically impossible. If consumers continue to buy as many pieces of apparel as they do today, it doesn't matter how much recycled fabrics or vegetable dyes a designer uses, the impact to the environment is still significant.
That's why Maria believes that the most important thing that consumers can do to be eco-friendly is to purchase sustainably produced investment pieces, things that you can wear year after year. Since she started her line in the late nineties, Maria has based her brand on this ethos and is a founding member of the CFDA Sustainability Committee. With a career spanning almost 20 years, Zero + Maria Cornejo is proof that eco-fashion can not only be chic but profitable.
You can purchase the brand at stockists worldwide.
