Sustainable Brand Directory


I created this page to make make it easier for you to discover affordable, ethical and sustainable menswear and womenswear brands (although the prices do vary from brand to brand). I am currently working on a children's wear page and I will continue to update this page with new brands.
Fashion is one of the largest polluting and exploitive industries on the planet and what seems like a small personal choice has a huge impact. All of these brands pay their workers a fair living wage, and are working to reduce the environmental impact of their clothing production on the planet.
