As consumers become more aware of the damaging effect that the fashion industry has on the world, Eco-friendly and ethical fashion labels continue to grow. Ethical fashion represents an approach to the design, sourcing and manufacture of clothing which maximizes benefits to people and communities while minimizing impact on the environment.
“If you describe something as ethical, you mean that it is morally right or morally acceptable” (Michael Fox). The true meaning of ethical goes beyond doing no harm, it represents an approach which strives to take an active role in poverty reduction and minimizing environmental destruction.
Eco-friendly and ethical fashion companies focus on fair trade, sustainable fabrics, transparent supply chains, avoiding hazardous dyes, recycling, zero waste or partnering with developing nations. There are ten best Eco-friendly, ethical fashion labels to watch in 2016. Each brand is doing exciting things and continuously innovating their designs and practices to create great products.
The Eco-friendly labels are: Bhalo, Kowtow, People Tree, Stella McCartney, H&M Conscious, Patagonia, EDUN, Freedom of Animals, Amour Vert and Svilu.
