Knowing what’s happening to our planet because of the things we own, including clothes and accessories, that eventually turn into waste is really alarming. We all love fashion, no doubt about it. But it’s also high time we consider what we put on and keep in our wardrobes. Looking to lessen your carbon footprint? Here are some of our favourite sustainable Filipino fashion brands and where to find them.
Chic net bags from Simula PH
For beach bums who need chic, lightweight, and handy totes, these net bags from Simula PH are for you. They come in fun colours pink, blue, and white. Use them to keep your beach essentials intact or as a grocery bag to avoid single-use plastic bags.

Leather creations from Cosimo
Leather products from Cosimo, such as everyday bags and luggage, go beyond just being bespoke and handcrafted with high-quality materials. They use upcycled materials like leather jackets to make their bags, which can be used by both men and women for school, office or travel use. The best thing about these bags?
