As promised, I have put together a list of sustainable and ethical fashion brands. There are a lot listed here and it’s not even all of them. I’m not sure if I’m going to create a part 2 of this post or update this as I discover more. Most of these brands are clothing with a few other categories thrown in. And at some point I will be creating posts for different categories like activewear, shoes, lingerie, etc.
Before I get started, I do want to bring up Reformation. Reformation was one of my favourite sustainable brands. Unfortunately, during the BLM movement, some things came out about the founder and how she treated black employees. At this time, I will no longer be supporting the brand. If I share something from them, that item was purchased before I found out and I will not be sharing an affiliate link to the product. I will also try to find and share a similar item from a sustainable brand.
