What was the last piece of ethical fashion you bought?

I ask this because it's such a challenge to make the commitment to ethical fashion and not be lured by cheap tricks while innocently going about your business!The last piece of ethical fashion I bought was a locally made (in New Zealand) poncho made of merino wool and possum fur (possums are a huge problem and are culled in NZ - their fur is almost as soft as Cashmere). I love it, everyone comments on it, and it feels good to know that it IS good...What about you? Do you make a point of…See More

What is your burning issue about Ethical Fashion?

I have so many burning issues that change on a daily basis!I've been thinking lately about the ethics of op shopping (buying second hand clothes). It's definitely high on the green list of most, but I wonder whether this becomes an excuse for lovers of fast fashion to buy up big, but feel 'good' about putting their loot in the charity bin two (fashion) minutes later?Yes, of course, re-using what already exists is definately a good thing, but is it an exchange to be encouraged into the future?…See More
