Sustainable Fashion

Despite the rise of socially responsible businesses and conscious consumers, the fashion industry seems to be falling behind. It is common to read reports of clothing brands whose ethics and manufacturing practices are called into question—some even accused of slavery in their supply chains. We focus on spotlighting the ethical fashion industry. Slow and sustainable fashion is a must. The apparel industry is the biggest polluter after oil, yet overconsumption runs rampant in the sector with the dominance of fast fashion. We do our best to cover the ethical fashion industry and spotlight sustainable fashion founders around the world.
