ETHICAL FASHION

I love retail therapy and I love fashion. Towards the end of 2015 however, I found out where some of my clothes are made and I’ve never shopped the same since. (Read my article here.)

This year, watch The True Cost movie (it’s online and also on Netflix).

Turns out, some operators in the fashion industry are not only the second biggest polluters of our planet (after oil, seriously), they employ women, children and men in conditions you would never work under.

It’s not as difficult as I thought it would be to shop more ethically and sustainably. After you’ve watched the doco do these two things:

  1. Download the free Good on You app to help you find ethical labels near you in Australia plus you can give your fave labels feedback to do better
  2. Discover ten of the ethical fashion labels I love here and here

Happy shopping.
