Thanks to Stacey Dooley’s documentary, and ‘The True Cost’ on Netflix, there has recently been a huge increase in awareness around the fast fashion industry and the damage that it is causing to the planet. I have been aware of this for a while and it’s a huge relief that it’s finally getting the exposure that it deserves. You’ve *probably* heard me rant on about how much I love charity shops and this is just one of the reasons why!
Theres’ also a few sustainable/ethical clothing brands that provide gorgeous products and fortunately, the prices are becoming more and more affordable. I feel like theres’ a bit of a stereotype that the clothes are unfashionable and dull; but this is absolutely not the case. So, here are a few of my favourite eco-friendly clothing picks for you all. Admittedly, I’m more acquainted with charity shops than I am ethical brands and so this has been a fantastic opportunity for me to do some research too. I hope you like my finds; and please do feel free to share any stores that you use!
A lot of sustainable/ethical clothing stores are more expensive than traditional high-street shops; though this believe it or not should be the norm. To be able to buy a white t-shirt for £3 from Primark speaks volumes about where the products have been made, the stress that their staff have been under, the quality of the raw materials and so on. It really is worth paying more to know where the products are made, and how!
