What Is Ethically Made Clothing?

Ethical fashion aims to produce clothing that has minimum negative impact on people, animals and the environment. Ethically made clothing takes account of these impacts in each stage of the production process including in the design, production and materials used.

Ethical fashion means that the workers that produce clothing are paid fair wages and are provided with good working conditions. Producing the materials that are used to make clothing can have significant impacts on the environment and ethical fashion seeks to minimize environmental impact by choosing fabrics that use the least amount of water, chemicals and energy in their production. While ethical fashion may not solve all of the world’s environmental problems, such as the overuse of chemicals, depleting water resources, energy consumption or overflowing landfills, it does allow the consumer to reduce their impact on the environment and choose to invest in more sustainable practices.
