Forget Fast Fashion

In recent years to keep up with the demand of consumers a lot of brands have become “fast fashion” such as H&M and Forever 21. Fast fashion is the production and selling of items in a short time at a low cost.  Brands that are fast fashion are always made outside of the US meaning that they are making clothes in third world countries that don’t have workers rights like we do. When they produce in countries like that they are able to lower the cost of producing and selling their garments because the workers making the clothes are barely making enough to live. This is a very unethical practice, but the thing is it is hard to find clothing companies that don’t do this. There are a lot of smaller brands and vintage options that can be cheaper and they are more ethical. Big Bud Press in a newer ethical brand that makes and sells their clothes in LA. Their clothes are on the pricey side but they are very inclusive with sizing and they use different shapes and sizes for their models so it is a good option if you have a little bit more money and are looking to support a small business. A good vintage option is Shop Daizy Lemonade, it is a account on instagram that sells old vintage pieces in really great condition. When you shop from vintage stores you are reusing clothes that are already made and lessening your carbon footprint. If you look online their are a lot more ethical options than you think so stop supporting fast fashion, you will not only find great options but you will be helping the environment and not contributing to unethical labor practices.
