62 Fashion-Focused Social Businesses
From Kenyan Running Apparel to Explosive Ethical Jewelry

{SummaryTitle}

Fashion-focused social businesses are typically fairly vocal about the importance of fair trade and ethical practices. Fashion production stems from an industry that has been extremely tainted—and rightfully so—with stories of sweatshops and slavery. Many of these fashion-focused social businesses attempt to heal ruptured relationships between the so-called developing world and the so-called developed world. Others incorporate the ever-popular one-for-one model, which has been popularized in recent years by TOMS.

From Kenyan running apparel to opportunity-generating accessories, these fashion-focused social businesses are collectively changing the way the North American public looks at their relationship—and implication with—unethical conditions in the Majority World. Interestingly, with companies like Walmart (for better or for worse) thinking about incorporating fair trade into retail, turning a blind eye to dishonorable working conditions shouldn’t be an option anymore.
