Will + Bear - Melbourne

Making the switch to a more eco-friendly wardrobe shouldn’t mean that you have to give up your style. From the bottom up, your entire sustainable outfit should never compromise your style or your ethics. And while some ethical accessories like hats are hard to come by, Will + Bear is here to change that.

Melbourne-based ethical headwear brand Will + Bear has plenty of love for the outdoors. Their hats are crafted with respect for nature, and are “inspired by the environments we play in.” It’s why they’ve chosen to make all of their hats by hand using 100% Australian wool. Using this naturally produced, biodegradable and renewable material was an obvious choice when looking at the most sustainable materials. And handcrafting each hat makes Will + Bear’s pieces both unique and classic.

In addition to these practices, Will + Bear has taken steps to give back to nature by planting 10 trees for every hat sold. Since starting, they’ve planted nearly 30,000 thanks to individuals who support their brand. Partnering with trees.org, Will + Bear’s commitment to the environment goes above and beyond by paying respect to nature.

Buy a hat, and plant a forest on us. Preserve the places we play in.
