The September issue of VITA is dedicated to sustainability—a word that, to me, encompasses a spectrum of good-for-the-planet endeavours, including environmental, animal welfare and humanitarian pursuits. In my editor’s photo, my daughter and I are rocking a new mom-and-me release from fashion-brand Marc Cain that has a kid-worthy charitable spin. For each girl or grownup feline-styled T-shirt sold, partial proceeds will benefit Plan International Germany in honour of World Children’s Day. Find these pieces (sold separately) online and in select stores from September 17th. Also inside: our top sustainable style picks (with eco-minded influencers Jen Pistor and Randa Salloum weighing in), the (r)evolution of secondhand shopping, how to build a conscious closet, what clean beauty really means and local travel that treads lightly. Oh, and sustainable-fashion guru Stella McCartney graces our cover. Enjoy!
