Ethical fashion, eco fashion, sustainable fashion, purchase with a purpose, fashion for good, social good fashion…
Have you heard these terms before?
Today, I want to take the time to chat about making purchases which have a positive impact on the global community and environment. Here at International Princess Project we sell PUNJAMMIES™which are 100% cotton comfortable sleepwear / pajamas / lougewear / casual women’s fashion (we wear them everywhere :p ). Your purchase of PUNJAMMIES™ helps to provide above fair trade wages to women survivors of human trafficking, who are employed in one of our partner sewing centers in India. These wages allow the women in our sewing centers to remain free from sex slavery while providing for their children and families. This means that the women can provide resources for their children to go to school, and to sustain an independent lifestyle.
What other types of ethical and eco apparel exist?
You can see through the picture above that blogger Aditi Mayer‘s whole outfit (minus the shoes) are social good products which benefit the global community! Hyperlinked here are lists of ethical fashion apparel companies for men and women, women’s ethical fashion apparel retailers, women’s jewelry which helps fight human trafficking, beach and sports swimwear made with respect for the environment, and vegan eco-friendly ethical boots.
Why is there a price difference?
In a heavily consumer based society where we are use to fast fashion finds and the cost associated with them, you may realize the difference in price. Although some discount coupon codes for ethical eco brands do exist, remember that the difference in cost is due to the higher wages paid to the workers and the eco-friendly manufacture processes, among other things.
I hope that this helps you become a more conscious consumer. Don’t forget you can use this list to help with your early social good, ethical fashion, eco fashion, Christmas shopping guide!
