91 Ethical Fashion Designs

From Charitable Leather Totes to Local Organic Jeans

— February 20, 2016 — Eco
The modern consumer (especially the Millennial) is focused more on the backstory of products now more than ever, which these ethical fashion designs help divulge.

The fashion industry has been plagued by a number of ills ranging from processing procedures that hurt the planet, to paying workers pennies a day. As such, brands have been forced to do better at respecting people and the planet as evident with these ethical fashion designs.

Everything from athletic wear, to footwear is covered in this collection that highlights the best eco-friendly, sustainable, social good and one-for-one initiatives out there. As consumers come to expect the brands they patronize to be upfront about the story behind the products they sell, we'll likely see ethical fashion continue to evolve and grow.
