[#GoneGreen2016] Day 15: Sustainable Socks


TODAY'S GREEN MANTRA: "When I next need to replace my socks, I shall purchase from an eco + ethical brand, to reduce my footprint on this planet"
This week is dedicated to the simple stuff, the daily wears we all share which can be soul-a-fied with simple sustainable switches the next time you're in replacement mode.  

To get us started from the bottom up, here are five of my favourite eco + ethical sock brands for men, women and children, perfect picks for the sock drawer the next time pal pairs are poorly.
