7 affordable sustainable fashion brands
Sustainable fashion is well known for its expensive price tags... By using eco-friendly fabrics and paying their workforce a living wage, these brands invest more money into an ethical supply chain and must therefore sell at a higher price point. Quite often the higher cost is the reason why many of us are put off buying clothes from sustainable fashion brands. Yet, in order for the sustainable fashion movement to continue growing, it should be inclusive of all budgets.
Six things you didn’t know about Fairtrade
Since the late 1980s, Fairtrade has been working to ensure a fair deal for farmers and workers around the world. Under the system, producers of everything from coffee and flowers to makeup and clothing are guaranteed workers’ rights, safer working conditions and fairer pay. This in turn leads to wider positive change, such as developing women in leadership and investing in climate-friendly farming techniques.
