So, you want to buy ethical fashion. You’re ready – search page open, wallet in hand, priorities and convictions in line.

And, you can’t find where to start – where are the designers? Where do you shop? Where does one even find ethical, reliable, wearable brands?

If you’re feeling overwhelmed, you’re not alone.

Below are four resources to begin finding the ethical and independent fashion brands that best suit your tastes.

1. The SOURCE directories

The SOURCE Directories are the only annual, printed global guides to sustainable fashion, and can be accessed through the Ethical Fashion Forum.

2. Modavanti

Up until now, there has been no recognized destination for socially conscious shoppers to find stylish, sustainable fashion that fits their values without sacrificing on style. Enter Modavanti – an online store and community built around ethical values without sacrificing on style.

3. Wear This, Not That

Fashioning Change has created a brand alternative that allows you to input the brands and styles you love, and instantly get recommendations for ethical alternatives.

4. The Sustainable Fashion Initiative

SFI promotes a socially and environmentally responsible understanding of fashion, provides a discovery platform for sustainable lifestyle options, and investigates practices that will enhance sustainability in the fashion industry as a whole.

Happy ethical shopping!
