Looking for an ethical clothing infographic? I’ve got a really handy one right here.
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. If you ever do come across the original source do let me know so I can credit it properly!
Ethical Clothing Infographic
Were there any surprises here for you?
For me what was really interesting to see in this ethical clothing infographic 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.
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 try and hunt down a similar infographic for you as soon as I can.
