You might have heard it already, but the fashion industry doesn’t have the best track record when it comes to social standards.
The good news is that there are an increasing number of brands trying to do better.
We work with those who care about people and are doing their best to have high social standards.
Here are a few ways brands can be socially conscious:
Pay a Fair Wage
Participate in Fair Trade
Ensure Safe Working Conditions
Encourage Traditional Skills
Profits for Philanthropy
The majority of workers in the fashion industry are women. These women are likely living in countries where gender equality is still a massive issue.
An example of a socially ethical brand is She Is From The Jungle, whose products are all sourced from local, female artisans in Brazil.
