It’s Ms Wanda’s Blog Action Day and a whole host of bloggers, including myself, are taking part to raise the issue of fairness when it comes to fashion. When I say fair I mean for the need for those making the clothes we wear to be treated well and paid a fair living wage, and without the use of child and sweatshop labour. I feel the fashion industry as a whole needs to change to address these issues and be more transparent in their supply chains.
Until that day comes, when all shops and manufacturers and their supply chains are completely transparent, then it can be difficult knowing exactly what is ethical and what isn’t ethical. As I’ve written quite a bit on ethical fashion on Moral Fibres, for Blog Action Day I thought it would be a good time to round up my ethical shopping posts in one to act as a handy resource on how to shop ethically:
My entirely secondhand outfit
A guide to shopping as ethically as you can on the high street.
My very own top ten tips for buying secondhand clothes on eBay.
