Nau-sustainable urban + outdoor apparel
Any time that I can find great apparel that's made of sustainable materials I'm all about it. My recent environmentally fashionable obsession is a brand called Nau. It's a small company based in Portland, Oregon and they make sustainable urban and outdoor apparel for "the modern mobile life."
Nau makes shirts, shorts, pants, dresses and accessories for men and women but I'm particularly in love with their jackets. They use recycled materials and organic cotton in super innovative ways to create ultra-lightweight fabrics that can be rolled up into a little ball and packed away without wrinkling.
Most of their jackets are water-resistant and some are 100% full-on waterproof. These stylish jackets are so durable they can literally go anywhere: hiking, biking, rock climbing, camping, sailing, fishing, stand-up paddle boarding or just sitting on your deck with a beer.
Nau is also a great company to support because of their Partners for Change program. They donate 2% of every sale to one of five great organizations and you get to choose which one! Fashion with a conscience.
