Over 10 Of The Best Ethical Brands

over 10 of the best ethical brands | Upload

Clothing is one of the best ways to express yourself. Unfortunately, the clothing industry has taken a turn for the worse. Fast-fashion fills up the stores nowadays: we can buy a tremendous amount of clothing for mad prices. But there is always someone who must pay the real price. 

Fast-fashion? Fair Fashion!

In this case, it is Mother Earth. The fast-fashion industry remains the second largest industrial polluter, right next to the oil industry. The clothing industry needs change: these sustainable brands are here for that.


                                                      10 Ethical Clothing Brands You Need To Know About


The problems that arise from fast-fashion – next to massive environmental pollution - are endless: low wages, child labor, and unsafe working environments are just a few examples. We can all remember the horrendous collapse of the Rana Plaza clothing factory in Bangladesh in 2011. Things must change in the fashion industry. Want to be a part of the change? Shop sustainable fashion! 

What is fast-fashion?
Fast-fashion is the globally used term for clothing based on recent designer items – as seen on celebrities – that will get in stores as quickly (and cheap) as possible. Fast-fashion retailers sell items for astonishingly low prices, and these fast-fashion brands produce more than fifty seasons a year. Fast-fashion producers often cut costs that increase their carbon footprint.

This leading sustainable fashion brand is transparent about its production process and designs trendy pieces for women with different shapes and sizes. Two birds, one stone!

Story mfg: Dyed By Nature

So cool: the sustainable clothing of Story mgf is made from organic fiber and dyed with nature.
