London Fashion Week highlighted a few ethical brands that are paving the way through a broken apparel and textile system. The fact is that a majority of fashion companies don’t monitor their individual supply chains to ensure that there is minimum impact on the environment, toxic chemicals are not being used, and human rights are not being abused. Many times, the fashion company may sign a contract with one factory that then subcontracts the work to an unauthorized factory to fulfill the order unbeknownst to the fashion company. Thankfully, there are a few retailers out there that are no longer willing to participate in this unethical treatment of people or the planet. Join me in being a responsible consumer and show the support of our dollars (or votes) to the groundbreaking companies that are changing the face of fashion one consumer at a time.

The new H&M Conscious Collection makes Sustainability cool. The eco-friendly Spring Line that was represented by A-Lister Helen Hunt at the Oscars is available in stores around the world on April 4th. The Line is exclusively made from organic cotton, recycled polyester, recycled polyamide (plastics) and Tencel. What’s more, they are providing an outlet for consumers to drop off used clothing that will be re-purposed for second-hand wear, reused in other products or recycled into new textile. Hopefully, this is the wave of the future for major retail chains.
