What is Ethically Crafted Clothing?
Ethical fashion is a buzz world right now along with fast fashion, slow fashion and many others but what does it actually mean?
To understand what ethical fashion is we really need look at the various areas that contribute to clothing being ethical.
- Supply Chain
- Distribution and Packaging
Ultimately it’s about reducing the harm to people and the planet and so careful consideration about where and who is involved in the manufacturing process is important.
We’ve all seen the ridiculous working conditions of so called sweat shops which are still being used to deliver cheap clothing to us. Any company considering themselves ethical needs to avoid any production process that involved such in humane conditions ensuring workers feel safe in the workplace along with receiving fair compensation for their work.
Companies should also adopt sustainable habits such as ensuring that the power used in the production of ethical clothing comes from renewables and invest in technologies that ensure only the right amount of water is used to combat waste.
We know retail data is showing a reduction in fast fashion as people globally are starting to ask the important questions such as “Who has made this clothing?” along with “are the people in the manufacturing process making a wage they can live on?” when they make fashion decisions.
