Since her Met Gala appearance last May in a Louis Vuitton gown made entirely from recycled plastic bottles, Emma Watson has been throwing a spotlight on brands that are achieving admirable things in the name of sustainability in fashion.

For the March ELLE cover story with the Beauty and the Beast actress the ELLE UK team worked closely with Eco-Age, an ideas consultancy promoting ethical and sustainable ways to dress, and home of the Green Carpet Challenge (GCC).

The goal was to showcase brands that are reducing the impact they have on people and the planet, including vintage clothing, which has a huge role to play in reducing the fashion industry's global footprint. Each of the brands featured in the shoot were assessed against Eco-Age's GCC principles for Sustainable Excellence, which address a range of social and environmental impacts typically caused by the fashion industry.

Whether it's reducing, repairing, reusing or recycling, producing in organic ethically source fabrics or being manufactured in zero-waste factories, here is our list of the best brands producing clothes with a cause:
