What is ethical fashion - and why? There are a number of different factors that come into play ...

  • Locally sourced - supporting local communities and requires less transportation.
  • Fair trade - non-exploitative, a fair price and wages given to workers. Ensures that workers have safe working conditions, do not work long hours and are able to afford food and healthcare.
  • Environmental impact - clothing manufactured using methods to reduce resource use, water, minimise pollution.
  • Organic - grown without the use of pesticides or chemical fertilisers, supporting the soil and environment.
  • Re-cycled and re-used - reduces the need to use up new resources.
  • Breaks down - uses materials that will eventually degrade in an environmentally friendly way e.g. shoes that use stitching instead of glue.
  • Dyes - uses low toxic dyes.
  • Packaging - minimal and degradeable or recyclable packaging.
