Sustainable fashion shops
The choices you make at the checkout can have a considerable effect on your future – and we don’t just mean at the grocery store. With that in mind,  keeping an eco-friendly mindset while shopping for clothing is equally beneficial for the body, the soul and the environment. And with a host of sustainable fashion shops around town, it’s not hard to see why Copenhagen is regarded as one of the most eco-friendly cities in the world. This week, check out InOut’s top picks for sustainable shopping.
