Ethical Fashion 3: The Best of the Rest
Ethical and eco-friendly fashion isn’t all about designer labels, there’s also plenty of affordable options out there that will benefit the planet and your wallet. The high street is starting to introduce more ranges - People Tree and Hug both have concessions at Topshop, Marks and Spencer has a Fairtrade range, and Future Organic at Oasis is a 100% organic demin range. A few stores also have one ‘green’ product; Gap has a fair trade t shirt and American Apparel have a Sustainable Edition organic cotton range.
Howies pledges money from all sales to grass-root environmental and social projects, and their Tomboy boy cut jeans (£75 shown in middle) are constructed from organic denim. Also shown are Oasis Future Organic Denim Jeans (£65 on the left) and Marks and Spencer Fair Trade on the waist Bootcut Jeans, the cheapest at £35.
