You love fashion and you probably already know that fast fashion sucks.
Maybe you also know that the fashion industry is one of the five biggest polluters in the world, 80% of garment workers are women, most of them aren’t paid the minimum living wage in developing countries.
You would like to do something about this (because you’re a pretty cool person), but you don’t quite know where to start.
You don’t know which fashion brands are sustainable and you’re also afraid that you have to compromise on your style to become a more ethical shopper. You don’t have time to do all the research by yourself because (let’s be realistic here) you’re probably busy enough juggling your career, your relationships, eating healthy and working out and all the random things life throws at you.
I totally get it!
That’s why I created The Pretty Planeteer to help busy people like yourself transition to a lifestyle that’s better for the planet, the people, the animals, and YOU without having to compromise on style and your favorite trends.
Who’s a Pretty Planeteer?
The name ‘Planeteer’ comes from the ’90s cartoon ‘Captain Planet and the Planeteers’. In this show, the five planeteers are protecting the planet from eco-villains, aka unsustainable businesses.
In reality, anyone can be a planeteer! Every action you take and every item you buy has an effect on our planet whether you’re conscious about it or not. If you want to be a planeteer, you have to make sure to choose your actions carefully and to only support sustainable and ethical businesses.
‘The Pretty Planeteer’ is someone who tries to protect our planet but also interested in style and fashion.
So how can you join us?

I hope you’re going to enjoy this little game as much as I enjoy shouting you out.
I’m Csilla (@csillaherbszt on Instagram), a Hungarian expat currently living in beautiful Switzerland. I’m writing about sustainable fashion since 2017 and I won’t stop until the fashion industry becomes 100% sustainable, ethical, and vegan.
I always loved fashion and experimenting with different outfits. That resulted in a couple of questionable (or should I say hilarious) fashion choices in my childhood and teens, however, by now, I became pretty confident with my personal style.
I think I was quite eco-conscious my whole life, and as my knowledge grew about this topic, I always did my best to cause the least amount of harm to the environment and to all its inhabitants. When I first heard about ethical fashion, the idea of me creating a sustainable fashion blog instantly made sense.
The blog has gone through many iterations since then. It keeps growing and evolving, but one thing stays the same: my love for fashion and sustainability.
Thank you so much for checking in!
