Ethical Clothing Infographic

I thought I’d share this handy and succinct ethical clothing infographic I found on Pinterest the other day.  As with all things Pinterest it can be difficult to find the original image source.  In the end I tracked it down to the Liz Alig website, but I’m not 100% certain if that’s the source of it, so if you ever do come across the original source do let me know so I can credit it properly!

For me what was really interesting to see was the mark-up made by retailers selling non fair trade items – 50% in the case of your typical non-fair trade garment, versus just pennies for the workers and cotton farmer.

Were there any surprises here for you?

I’m personally interested in seeing how non fair trade clothing compares to ethically made clothing.  I haven’t been able to find anything similar to this infographic yet, but I will ll try and hunt down a similar infographic for you as soon as I can.

If  you’re a new reader and this has piqued your interest for ethical clothing then I have a whole section of this website devoted solely to ethical clothing.  I also have posts devoted to ethical clothing brands for women and for men.  And if you’re on a tight budget you might also find this post on affordable ethical clothing especially useful.

You can also follow along on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram to be kept up to date with my most recent finds and articles.

And please do share any ethical fashion resources you find in the comments below!

  1. Wow. This just puts things into perspective. I have been concerned about the rate at which fast fashion is growing and the things I have learned about it saddens me. It’s so nice to find a blogger who cares enough to go into detail on this subject. I have recently made the commitment to blog about ethical fashion, sourcing brands and designers that are local and encourage slow fashion – or even encouraging my readers to thrift shop – but I have a long way to go.

    So glad I found your blog.
