What is ethical fashion?👗 It is an umbrella term to describe fair and caring fashion design, production, retail, and purchasing. It covers a range of issues, it is rather subjective, and any one of these topics can be used to describe an ethical fashion brand. These are: 🔹Fair trade 🔹Employing women or certain ethnic groups 🔹Made without animal components 🔹No animal testing 🔹Donating part of the profits to a charity 🔹Made locally🔹Handmade 🔹Fair wages paid 🔹Contributing to preserve traditions of an ethnic minority 🔹Revealing manufacturing locations and workforce policies 🔹The product itself rises awareness or promotes an ideal or cause When picking a fashion brand, be very aware of their transparency and mottos. They should have clear guidelines and ethics that they follow which leaves no room for misinterpretation. 🌟 #oneoutfitoctober #veganfashion #wastefree #slowfashion #slowlife #ecolife #ecoblogger #ecofashion #trashion #trashisfortossers #zerowaste #makethezwswitch #awareness #fashionblog #ethicalfashion #sustainablefashion #veganlife #consciousculture #consciousliving #fastfashion #minsgame #declutter #mindfulness #minimallife #awareness #livesimple #wastefree #sustainableliving #buyless #30wears #reducereuserecyle #fashrev

It was originally a maxi skirt, but I’ve recently become a big fan of midi-length skirts so I cut off half of the fabric and hemmed the end.✨ #sustainablefashion #ecofashion #diy #fashion #fblogger #fashionblogger #ecofriendly #ecobeauty #succulent #succulents #thriftshop #gogreen #environment #eco #ethicalfashion #sustainabledaisy #daisy #sustainable #sustainability #girlboss #nature #savetheplanet #instafashion #instastyle #ootd #wiwt #laurelcanyon
