Auralis, United By Blue & Forks Over Knives: The Book

•NYC based label Auralis offers up some fresh, sustainable men's looks including a recycled hemp/organic cotton vest in gray. The collection also features a vegan belt created out of the fallen roots of a Cupey tree.

United By Blue is a brand focused on cleaning up our waterways. For every item sold, they promise that 1lb of trash is cleaned up directly by their staff.  Their products are made from organic cotton, and even their packaging is low-impact, using renewable banana fiber packaging instead of plastic whenever possible. Their hangtags are made from elephant dung with flower seeds that grow blue flowers when planted. In addition to the bags I've showcased here, they have a nice selection of smart graphic tees addressing everything from overfishing to oil to shark finning.
