Ethical fashion would ideally involve a number of factors which may or not be doable. In any event, we can have our ideals and move closer to them step by step.
The key factors of ethical fashion in our view would be:
- Buying natural fabrics.
- Buying organic fabrics.
- Buying from fair trade organizations where the staff are treated with respect and valued on all levels. No sweat lodges.
- Not moving in tandem with the fashion industry whereby you feel you need to change your wardrobe due to social pressure.
- Buying second hand garments or having clothes swap parties.
