Buy
Better

In a world of disposable goods, fast fashion, and fast food, it's hard to know which products are sustainable and which have been “greenwashed.” At Bluedot, we do the legwork for you by selecting options that meet our editors' high standards for sustainable materials or ingredients, eco-friendly packaging, fair labor practices, and overall regard for the planet and its people. These products aren’t perfect (consumption, after all, has a cost to the planet). But they are better, leading us to our pledge: Buy less, but when you do buy — buy better.

Afends Mass Canvas Jacket

Hemp, recycled poly or wool, and organic cotton — Afends uses only eco-friendly fabrics to create its trendy yet durable clothing. One Bluedotter said her daughter wanted "anything branded with that hemp leaf!”  

Amour Vert Tops

Bluedot founder Vicki Riskin bought an Amour Vert sweater that she loves, but claims she also wants “everything.” Between amourvert.Com and ReAmour, the company’s resale marketplace for pre-loved Amour Vert pieces, she could make quite a dent in her wish list. High quality + classic styles = pieces that can stay in circulation for years!

Boody Boyfriend T-Shirt (White)

Can you top a perfect white tee? Our editors think this one is it. Boody’s bamboo “boyfriend” tees are made using fair labor practices, and sent in sustainable packaging. The essence of simple summer style.

Cariuma Catiba Pro Sneakers

Though the Catibas are built for skateboarding, we wear ours on long boardwalks to the beach, and even out to dinner. Helen Mirren wore hers with a dress to the Cannes Film Festival. The Brazilian company will plant two trees for every pair of shoes you order.

Cotopaxi Hielo Cooler Bag

We love these brightly colored packs, which are easy to spot all over West Coast cities, according to our dispatchers there. This cooler pack, “Made with (Re)Purpose,” uses small batches of remnant fabrics, keeping them out of landfills. Fill yours with a summer picnic. Carry on!

Dropps Sensitive Skin & Baby Detergent

No plastic bottles! No chemicals! This company is dedicated to supporting environmentally friendly and sustainable laundry (and dishwashing) practices. They are dye-free, phthalate-free, phosphate free, and animal-cruelty-free.

Ecozoi Lunch Boxes

Back to school time means back to packing lunches. We’re loving Ecozoi’s lunch boxes and snack containers. Made of food-grade stainless steel with silicone seals and lids, they are unbreakable, 100% leakproof, stylish and eco-friendly. And they come in a variety of sizes.

Eileen Fisher Wide-Leg Corduroys

Bluedot founder Vicki Riskin has been wearing Eileen Fisher for years, and said she’d wear anything the company sells. The company uses a “circular by design” philosophy — designing “with the future in mind” — sustainable fabrics, fair working conditions, and high-quality manufacturing to ensure a long life.
