Chic Sustainable Wedding Apparel

Azazie Offers Eco-Friendly DTC Bridal and Bridesmaid Dress

— April 9, 2020 — Eco
Azazie is an eco-friendly wedding and bridesmaid dress company that offers direct-to-consumer products. Each dress is cut and sewn to order, which results in a significant reduction in waste. The brand only carries 3% of overstock at any given moment compared to the industry standard of 25%.

Azazie further reduces its greenhouse emissions with its Virtual Showroom rather than traditional brick-and-mortar. The showrooms allow bridal parties the opportunity to come together to decide on styles and colors before ordering any samples. In addition, to combat textile waste, Azazie donates all excess inventory to The Princess Project, a non-profit organization that helps students find their dream prom dresses free of charge.

Azazie will appeal to conscious consumers looking to reduce their ecological footprint while celebrating their life milestone.
