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.

But before we all rush out looking for cheaper options that claim to be eco-friendly, it's important to beware of fast fashion brands that claim to be ethical or sustainable.
