Last month, I shared Five Fabulous Ethical Clothing Choices — and got a lot of great feedback from all over the Internet. Looks like everyone wants more! So here are five more choices when you’re looking to buy fashion more ethically.
Several of these companies are from reader suggestions. Keep them coming and share your favorite ethical sellers in the comments!
The International Princess™ Project was founded to advocate for women rescued out of sex trafficking in India, giving them opportunities to restore their broken lives and empower them to live in freedom. They make fun Punjammies ($35), which are a great alternative to cheap PJs from Target. I love how each item is “made with hope from India.”
German clothing company Armedangels has a great slogan: “We love beautiful products. We think organic. And we believe fairness is never out of fashion.” I love this sweatshop-free cowl-neck sweatshirt ($123). The style, the color — it’s all fabulous!
Nisolo Shoes hopes to influence a growing culture of conscious consumerism and offer job creation and access to opportunity for Peruvian communities and others around the world. After my second foot surgery later this year, there’s a good chance I’m getting myself a pair of these Andrea loafers ($128). I love how they have them paired with skinny black pants.
I definitely have a “crunchy” side. But that doesn’t mean I don’t want to be cute! I shop quite a bit at REI (comfort + ease of care!), but recently learned that not all the brands there are made ethically. Patagonia is one, however, that gets top marks. Puffy vests are pretty much my favorite thing ever, so this slim-fit steel gray vest ($149) is now on my wish list (my birthday is in April, *hint*).
Everlane encourages consumers to 1) know the factories, 2) know the costs, and 3) always ask why. They call it radical transparency — I call it awesome. The relaxed fit of the Seed Stitch Box Cut Sweater ($60) is somehow casual but classy. Pair this with those Nisolo loafers above? Yes and yes!
