In honor of Earth day and broke college students everywhere // because you shouldn't have to break bank to support ethical brands~

After publishing my 6 (Ethical) Stores You'll Love As Much As Zara response post, a few of you requested a similar post with ethical picks that were a bit more aligned with your college-student budget. Which is such a valid and important request. I think being more conscious of variances in socio-economic class when posting articles is something I will be working on, so thank you always for the post suggestions! :)
