So which brands are the driving force behind change?
The most coveted shoe of the year was the Veja trainer which has experienced a 69% year-on-year rise in popularity.
A staple we double-tap with every Instagram scroll, the cult shoe even reached royal heights in October 2018 when the Duchess of Sussex famously donned a pair on the royal tour of Australia.
Though that wasn't the only influence to have stemmed from Buckingham Palace with Queen Elizabeth II's revolutionary decision to stop wearing real fur gracing the headlines in late 2019.
Following the announcement, search for "faux fur" shot up by 52%.
Other brands helping to contribute towards a more sustainable future include Reformation, Filippa K and Bassike (with shoppers desperate to get their hands on the label's cult t-shirt).
In terms of homegrown shoppers, Australians prefer to search for "ethical fashion" and the term has risen by 67% in the last three months alone.
Denim and sportswear are among the top performing categories in the sustainable sector with Australia showing the world how it's done on the swimwear front.
In fact, most of the environmentally-conscious bikinis and swimsuits which are shipped across the world are designed and made here.
Last year, Lyst's Year in Fashion report indicated a 75% increase in sustainable search terms.
With Australia paving the way for a more eco-friendly future, it seems an increasing number of shoppers are continuing to shop responsibly (even whilst quarantined at home).
