Shopping for eco-conscious and ethical clothes are not cheap or easy to find! It takes a budget and research to find what you want, which is why I try to make it easier with these inspiration collages. I also want to make it easier because I don’t want you to feel discouraged from trying to buy eco-conscious or ethical clothes.
Ethical clothes were those made in either the US or UK due to their stricter labor laws. There are many brands in department stores like Nordstroms that are American made. Buying clothes from different parts of the world such as Cambodia, Bangladesh, and China can be tricky because the majority are made under sweatshop conditions.
If a clothing company is transparent and ensures the condition of factories outside of the US or UK, it can still be considered ethical. Everlane, a budget friendly brand, works with factories in China, but is transparent about working conditions.
Being an informed consumer doesn’t mean you have to break the bank to be stylish. Trust me; I’m constantly researching new brands that fall within the ethical or eco-conscious categories. H&M and ASOS have eco-conscious lines with clothing made of reclaimed fabric or sustainable materials. ASOS also has affordable clothes manufactured in the UK.
Below are current brands/clothes that I’m lovin’!
