    Shop sustainable brands 

    Sustainable Fashion Brands

    When it comes to eco-friendly clothing, consider shopping for brands that use sustainable materials such as organic cotton, recycled polyester and natural fibres like linen and bamboo. These materials are better for the environment and often have a lower carbon footprint than sustainable materials (plus, they feel like a cloud on your skin!). Additionally, look for brands that use as few natural resources as possible throughout their products’ life cycle, as well as companies that support ethical labour practices. 

    Clean Beauty

    If you’re wanting to incorporate sustainability practices into your beauty routine, there are a few things to look out for. You’ll want to find brands that use sustainable beauty ingredients (that is, those formulated without harmful ingredients) and sustainable packaging that has as little waste as possible (think: reusable glass jars and compostable cardboard). And just like we mentioned, look for companies that take steps to lower their impact throughout their entire supply chain and that create products with the well-being of animals, people and the planet in mind. 

    A great place to start is by checking out Sephora’s “Clean at Sephora” program which features products that are free from over 50 harmful ingredients, including sulfates, parabens and phthalates. Our top picks include Biossance, Tata Harper and Rose Inc. 

    Recycle and Repurpose

    Another way to incorporate more sustainability practices into your everyday life is to recycle and repurpose items you already own. 

    Our Commitment to Sustainability

    Galeries de la Capitale is committed to sustainability and proud of the following green initiatives:

    Les Galeries de la Capitale has been awarded BOMA BEST Platinum certification – sustainable building, a highly recognized environmental certification for commercial buildings. It is the 1st regional shopping center in Quebec to obtain this distinction.

    A number of concrete actions have been implemented in recent years, including the installation of over 2,000 solar panels, as well as an efficient management program for all the property’s residual materials. Intelligent, automated operations management has also reduced energy consumption by 19%, improved air quality and optimized drinking water management.

    By supporting these brands and others like them, we can make a positive impact on the planet while still enjoying the latest fashion and beauty trends. This Earth Month and beyond, let’s make a conscious effort to shop sustainably and support brands that are working towards a greener future. For our top sustainable style picks, click here.
