Keep warm in an ethical and sustainable fall jacket – without breaking the bank! A $130 budget can get you a jacket you’ll wear for years on end, you don’t have to spend a fortune on a quality piece.
Just a quick disclaimer before we begin: while $130 could still be considered quite a sizeable budget, remember that shopping for sustainable fashion is very different than buying your clothes from a fast fashion chain. A sustainable, quality piece will last you for years (potentially decades), compared to a cheap fast fashion jacket – so you’ll spend less in the long run. *You can also use this list to find the item second hand – one of my favorite things to do before making any purchase!
