Organic Cotton Coats

As It’s that time of year when we are all starting to bring out our winter coats, I thought I’d pull together a list of my favourite top 10 sustainable options that are available on the high street right now, and hopefully you will them as love as much as I do.

It’s so tempting to just immediately buy something you love without giving it a second thought. But before you launch into buying your new winter coat maybe consider purchasing something which has less impact on the environment, cruelty free or fair trade. I have put together a list of my top 10 favourites and under each image put some info about their sustainability factor!
