High Fashion Designers with Commitments
The designers featured on the site create beautiful products and responsible companies. They've invested time and resources in being as planet- and people-friendly as possible.
Some of the commitments they've made? Sourcing ecologically responsible materials, developing sustainable production processes, treating their workers well, and giving to charity.
Ethica is proud to offer eco-friendly packaging and free, carbon-neutral shipping with every order. The company is based in a LEED-certified green building in New York City. They also support Nest, a non-profit dedicated to the development of responsible artisan businesses.
A Sleek Look and a Smooth Experience
The website is easy to navigate and you can choose to shop by designer and product family, but what’s great about this website is that you can also choose to shop by ethical practice. This means that you can choose to shop according to what matters to you the most between “Sustainable”, “Trade not Aid”, “ Hand-crafted”, “and Made in the USA” or “Vegan” and the good news is that most of the items fall under more than one of these practices.
Another plus, next to each item you will find an explanation stating why the item is ethical.
Pretty Useful Tips
In addition to highlighting how every step in the life cycle of a garment is important and taken into consideration (from the sourcing of the organic raw material, to the living wedges provided during the manufacturing process, to the eco-transport), Ethica also gives you the tools to complete a sustainable cycle at home. On the website you can find a “Tips on how to green your laundry routine” section as the company believes that sustainable style isn't just about the way you shop. It can also be about the way you care for your clothes.
Ethica wish to provide, literally and figuratively, a small fashion fix, while we all endeavor as a community to bring about permanent, industry-wide solutions.
