A true sign of sustainability becoming a more than a momentary trend is when big online platforms like Net-a-Porter start to offer a dedicated yet small ”organic” selection. The trend almost turns into a movement when smaller multi-brand online stores pop up, which offer curated selections from sustainable brands.
However, the criteria on what is a sustainable brand vary a lot between the various platforms. While some of the stores let you filter by keywords like ‘organic’, or ‘recycled’, thus exposing their criteria for sustainability, some have a more inclusive yet fuzzy approach. In any case, all these new online stores are great to explore sustainable brands and offer new viewpoints on what sustainability can be about.
