Thanks to the past success of its Around The World offshoots featuring international brands like Wood Wood and MiniMarket, Urban Outfitters is definitely NO stranger to expanding its vision (sans passport). But now the mass retailer is going even more global with a sustainable spin to its already well-stocked selection of worldly goods. UO has teamed up with Della, a Los Angeles-based brand that sells wildly cool clothing and accessories handcrafted in Ghana. According to Refinery 29, the label's roomy jackets, track shorts, and accessories like iPad cases are produced by local women, all of whom receive background training and education from the company. Besides being actually, you know, cute, these colorful printed pieces are 100% vegan and totally sustainable. Oh, and we mention everything's priced under $69?!

Urban's already our go-to for everything from Easter dresses to sports fan swag to admittedly head-scratching WTF items, so we never really need an excuse to hit up the mega-retailer. But still, now that it's joined the ranks of fellow fast-fashion giants like H&M in going sustainable, that inevitable blow to our wallets definitely doesn't feel quite so bad. And because the proceeds from the upcoming capsule go straight back to the Ghanaian communities themselves, shopping has never been so guilt-free...OR so convenient.

Mark your cals, because the online-exclusive collection hits Urban Outfitters' website May 1!
