We’ve talked about mending, we’ve discussed our IMPERFECT category, and we’ve continued to mention harmful textile waste, now it’s time to get creative! If you have an item with some holes, unsightly stains, and that just doesn’t fit right anymore, you can still save it. “Waste isn’t waste until we waste it,” Will.i.am has said. We wholeheartedly agree! We’re bringing you 7 bloggers who are experts at turning “trash” into treasure.
For this edition of “Swappers We Love” we’re featuring eco stylist and sustainable fashion blogger Sonia Kessler. We have to warn you that we’re a little biased because Sonia is a close collaborator of ours, but we think you’ll see that she lives up to the hype! Sonia is a French girl living in Los Angeles. Her style reflects her eclectic story and is showcased greatly on her Instagram @nativestyling. After gathering attention for her personal style, Sonia dove headfirst into helping others find their true selves through clothes through her business Native Styling. From sustainable shopping tours to personal shopping with ethical production in mind, Sonia does it all in a completely accessible way. Enjoy learning more about her story below!

As a former EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) employee, and currently an EHS (Environmental Health and Safety) specialist at Universal Studios, it’s safe to say that Karen has her facts straight about mother earth. In addition, she is the brains behind the popular sustainable fashion blog, Sustainable Daisy, so she understands the importance of style as well.
