Sustainability – It’s THE buzz word of the month. Come 20-22 April; leaders worldwide will gather to "Restore Our Earth™" together. If you have been on the brunt of sudden downpours and blazing hot sun all within a day, you would have guessed that the climate has changed for the worse and heard about its dire effects on the Earth and its population, i.e. us.

For sure, the Yahoo Shopping team loves shopping and sharing with you the best deals on the Internet. Instead of leaving it to the world leaders, why not effect change in our own ways? Take the first step by becoming more aware of sustainable living in our daily lives. You, too, can play a part by choosing to consume consciously. No action is too small. 

Here, we have put together a list of your favourite brands that have focused on the environmental impact for years. Look to sustainable leader Everlane when you need daily wear, activewear, sneakers and more. Everlane never lets up on its eco promise in sourcing the most sustainable materials from farm to factory and is constantly working on fabric innovation to reduce the impact on the planet.

When it comes to sneakers, our favourite brands Nike and Adidas, are also leading the pack in choosing recyclable and sustainable materials. These sustainable shoes are not only fashion-forward but are also durable. And there's Purpose by Pomelo with its' sustainable fashion collection. Talk about playing a part to clean up our carbon footprint.

When you think of coffee, which brand comes to mind first? Nespresso, of course!

Did you know you stand to win a sleek Swedish Velosophy bike (made from recycled aluminium coffee capsules, no less) just by recycling your Nespresso pods from now till 30 June?
