Where to Buy Ethical & Sustainable Fashion in New York City

Whenever I'm in New York, I have to go to SoHo to check out what's new in sustainable fashion. Earlier this fall, I was finally able to visit the city again and had a blast poking around the flagship stores for Nanushka, TheRealReal, Sézane, and others.

A lot of the sustainable fashion stores are within walking distance of each other in and around SoHo. I've compiled this list, along with a handy Google map, for anyone shopping for ethically-made clothing, shoes, and accessories in Manhattan and Brooklyn.

I've visited most of the stores myself either on this or previous trips to New York. Sometimes representatives from ethical brands have reached out to me to let me know about their stores. Please comment below if I'm missing any other ethical fashion stores in NYC.
