CURIO's Guide to Sustainable Accessories

If you’re like us and you have Greta Thunberg on your mind, then you’re going to love this list of sustainable accessories. Sustainability is a major topic on the minds of the fashion industry, particularly because this industry is one of the biggest contributors to the unfortunate state of our earth. With this, we’ve seen a large amount of smaller, sustainable, more eco-conscious brands pop up. From activewear to swimwear to your everyday white tee, clothing garments have become so easy to shop while being earth conscious, and now the accessory world is catching up quickly!

With fall here, we have the perfect new boot for you, the greatest pair of tights to stretch some of your summer pieces into autumn, and the coolest jewelry to rock with your favorite sweaters - all from sustainable, ethical brands. Let’s enter into this new season with both our earth and our style in mind!
