Fortunately you can stay casual, comfortable and fashionable by checking out what these stores have to offer. Not only can you save money and switch things up with your daily casual attire, these companies are also leaving a positive impact on the environment.
Known for their casual and trendy styles, American Eagle provides plenty of options from basic t-shirts and jeans of all styles to unique dresses and accessories. Striving to inspire their customers, the company has focused on creating an environmentally conscious business setting. Employees have cut back on plastic water bottle use, recycled over 130,000 old denim items (which helped insulate 265 Habitat for Humanity homes) and partnered with I:Collect to create a zero-waste textile recycling initiative.

If you’re looking to step up your basic denim game or want to inject a little European flair into your wardrobe, Guess sells bold clothing for fashion-forward men and women. The company has made an even bolder move by addressing sustainability issues, such as water conservation, carbon emissions and recycling, among other initiatives.

Of course I couldn’t forget comfortable footwear. Vans sells comfortable sneakers, boots, sandals and more, in addition to clothing and backpacks. You can browse one of their many collections or go for a truly unique look and design your own pair of kicks.
The company’s roots are in sports that rely on a healthy environment, so their mission to protect the planet and reduce their ecological footprint is divided into three initiatives: Green Sole Operations, Green Sole Product and Street Sole. They strive to make operations energy efficient, create environmentally friendly products and give back to their communities and charities.
