Ethical Fashion and Where To Buy
In this world of bloggers, it is tough to avoid fast fashion. If you’re looking to make a good income, it doesn’t make sense to not constantly feature new (and usually cheap) items for followers to buy. Also, not all of these companies have affiliate links which are an important source of income for a fashion blogger!
But I don’t believe in the fast fashion industry, or the constant need to buy more junk. Of course not every item you can buy ethically, and you are going to like an item you like whether it’s ethically sourced or not. But there are some items we can buy, and it’s more important to start small to really make a change.
An easy way to learn more about the fast fashion industry, watch The True Cost on Netflix. It’s a great expose featuring the history and what drives the fashion industry today.
Here is a list of some of my favorite places to start with ethically sourced fashion:
Everlane – Everlane has cute clothes, good prices, and classic pieces that can be worn for years. Their clothes are well made, comfortable, and they tell you all about their factories in the developing world as well.
Pact Organic – Pact Organic has great basics for even better prices. They are a great place to begin building an ethically sourced wardrobe.
Toms – If you haven’t heard of Toms, you’ve been living under a rock, but all of their shoes are sourced ethically and for every pair purchased they donate a pair to a child in need. I have a pair of traditional slip on toms, and also have a pair of wedges I wore on my wedding day! They have shoes for every occasion.
