These clothing brands that help animals are not just made of natural materials like organic cotton and hemp, but use profits to help pet shelters, farm sanctuaries, wildlife rescue and endangered species. If you find it difficult to afford clothes and donate to animal charities – why not just combine the two? Buy what you need, and help charities at the same time. If you do buy items made with recycled polyester, wash in a microplastic catcher, to stop plastic fibres breaking off, and reaching the sea.
