With more and more consciousness about the immense amount of waste often produced by the fashion industry (The True Cost anyone?), brands that utilize sustainable practices are becoming increasingly popular.
Next Sunday, June 5th, the Urban Air Market will head to DTLA (at 5th and Spring Street) to offer tons of eco-friendly goods — including fashion, accessories, body care, art, and home furnishings — by over 100 makers and designers. For the 11am to 5pm shopping event, you can specifically expect to find Mafia's brightly colored backpacks (made of re-used sails!), Plastic Foliage's cute handmade crop tops, Ode to Jeune's adorable kid's clothing, Pomp and Circumstance's cool bow ties, and Ryze Project's curated collection of conscious European-designed products, which includes these Pendular Pocket bags (insert heart-eyed emoji here).
The market is free to attend, but if you take approximately 35 seconds to RSVP here, you can score yourself a complimentary tote to stash your inevitable bounty of sustainable buys.
