Atlanta Apparel is just around the corner, returning to AmericasMart Atlanta from April 11-15. As the event gears up for its biggest installment yet—25% more resources and eight floors of fashion!—sustainability is increasingly shaping the conversation at the market. As buyers look to increase their conscious, eco-friendly buys, Atlanta Apparel is highlighting those making waves on that front. Here’s what we have our eye on!


Nashville, Tennessee-based Able empowers women, providing them with safe, dignified jobs. With a two-pronged approach that includes partnering with women in Ethiopia, Brazil, Mexico, China, India, Portugal, and in Nashville, as well as supporting large scale businesses in those countries to help them create better opportunities for women, their mission to create a purposeful brand with a high quality offering is on the up and up.

Blue Planet Eyewear

For the past 13 years, Blue Planet Eyewear has championed a progressive business model which helps the community and the environment. Each pair of Blue Planet Eyewear is made with recycled and/or natural materials, and for every style sold, a pair of corrective glasses are donated to a person in need via one of the brand’s charity partners.

Cari Capri

Eco-conscious activewear, loungewear, and accessories—look no further than Cari Capri. Made using recycled materials, each coordinating set and sneaker has an impressive list of sustainability efforts to match. What time’s the workout at?

Each piece is then handcrafted with love by talented female artisans in Mumbai, India, who work in state-of-the-art manufacturing facility and receive fair wages, retirement and medical benefits, and six months maternity leave.

Beachy lifestyle brand Faherty, created by twin brothers Alex and Mike Faherty, is adamant about limiting waste and environmental destruction. By committing to using recycled and renewable fabrics in at least 85% of its product, as well as smart supply chain decisions that lower carbon emissions, less toxic chemicals, better dyes and finishes, and circularity initiatives, the company continues to remain an industry leader.
