As if there wasn’t enough about Amsterdam to steal your eco-friendly heart – bikes and bike lanes, stroopwafels, pretty houses, and electric boat rides down the canals – this beautiful city also has a thriving sustainable fashion scene!
More and more people want an honest story behind the products they buy. It would be nice to know that whatever piece of clothing is made from organic fabrics and is produced in an honest way. So shop till you drop! And then the fun part: You can bring your friend, boyfriend or husband because we have also listed some shops for men. Enjoy!
