3 Ethical Fashion Projects Led By Women - September Edition
by Sica Schmitz | Posted on September 23 2016
It's an exciting time in ethical fashion as more and more people start to question what our purchases support and how we can make more conscious shopping choices.
At the forefront of creating change are passionate people going unconventional routes to bring new stories and options to this conversation. Below we're highlighting 3 ethical fashion projects happening right now, all led by women tackling this issue through different ways including writing, educating, and designing. Show your support and get involved!
ECO WARRIOR PRINCESS
Jennifer Nini started her blog Eco Warrior Princess in 2010 to explore topics that she feels matter: ethical fashion, sustainability, social justice, environmental issues, climate change, ethics in business, green living, conscious consumerism and clean food.
Like us, she believes in paying those who work for her (no unpaid internships!) and wants to continue offering her highly informational content as free and ad-free as possible. If you love her blog as much as we do, you can help her continue to do this by pledging $1 (or more!).
TORTOISE & LADY GREY
Summer Edwards is the woman behind Tortoise & Lady Grey, a sustainable fashion blog dedicated to well-researched content to inspire and inform you to make a tangible positive impact on the environment, day-by-day. Additionally she has already written two wonderful e-books, 6 Steps to a Sustainable Wardrobe - Guide & Workbook and Guide to Sustainable Textiles.
Committed to the sustainable path and an active believer that less is more, she is actively choosing not to fund her blog through regular products promotions and instead is asking for monthly pledges of $1 or more from thoughtful readers like you so she can continue offering her unique perspective on sustainable living.
ELSA AND ME
ELSA AND ME believes clothing should be made to fit women, not the other way around. It’s said that the standard-sizing for most women’s clothes only fits about 15% of women so this innovative brand offers customizable, Made to Order dresses to fit your body and budget. Choose your silhouette, neckline, sleeve length, and fabric, and then it will be ethically crafted in Nairobi, Kenya. By helping fund this Kickstarter, you will help them buy bulk fabric to speed up the production process, shorten the time between ordering and delivery, and keep their prices low.
