The brands making sustainability easy

Style Tribute

Asia’s fastest-growing specialist marketplace is a treasure trove bursting with luxury goods for men, women, and kids, at affordable prices. It encourages a collaborative ecosystem, where it’s as easy to sell as it is to buy, which extends the lifecycle of luxury goods. You’ll find the likes of Valentino, Hermes, Chanel, and more to explore. And stats show that on average the lifespan of each item is increased by 9 months and has a singular decrease of 30% in carbon, waste, and water wastage. We always advocate for shopping responsibly and only buying what you need. But if you do need to replace something in your wardrobe, Style Tribute’s pre-loved collections are the stuff of green fashionista dreams.

Indosole

The problem: there is a massive amount of tyre waste in the world and it is nearly impossible for tyres to decompose. The solution? Indosole; by repurposing tyre waste into durable soles for footwear, it’s created cute kicks that help save the planet. In case you wondered, since launching Indosole has prevented 80,000 tyres from entering landfill. Specialising in sliders and flips flops for men, women, and kids in a variety of colours that are chic, comfortable, and conscious, each vegan-friendly pair is responsibly made in Indonesia. Indosole has also recently collaborated with local community groups in Bali to help feed people in need by donating a percentage of its profits. Buy one pair of flip-flops and you’ll help feed three hungry people. Or buy one pair of sliders and help feed five.

You can check out and return resuables from any partner vendor, and now you can even order via foodpanda to boot. It’s a no-brainer.
