12 Times Emma Watson championed ethical and sustainable dressing

It’s impossible to search “celebrity” and “ethical dressing” without coming across Emma Watson’s name. Be it on or off-duty, the actress (who just turned 30 last week) has been making ethical and sustainable fashion choices for years, and she’s constantly using her platform to encourage and inspire us to make smarter choices about the way we shop.

She even launched a separate Instagram account to document her sustainable fashion journey, with captions explaining the brands and details behind every. Single. Outfit. In conjunction with World Earth Day today, we shine the spotlight on the English beauty who proves that it’s possible to dress fashionably without steering away from your beliefs.

Below, we round up 12 of her most talked-about ensembles from recent years:
