In the fashion-for-good world, the terms “ethical” and “sustainable” are often used interchangeably, both seeming to express slow fashion and an understanding of the industry’s effect on people and the planet. Taking a closer look, these terms have distinct definitions, yet they work in a complementary manner. So what's the difference between them and, more importantly, how do they intersect?
Sublime Magazine joins the Soil Association in #OrganicSeptember, a campaign dedicated to growing the organic market. With more of us seeking solutions to restore nature, our health, and a safe climate, becoming part of the organic movement can make a world of a difference. These six brands work towards precisely this: raising awareness and increasing wellness.
Inspiring humankind to contribute to a sustainable future has never been an easy feat. Between timeless watches, chic bridal collections, vegan footwear, organic textiles and natural skincare, these independent brands are doing more than promoting style; they put the environment at the heart of their business.
Shopping patterns have changed drastically since the world went into lockdown, but with restrictions easing, supporting independent businesses both online and in-store can make a huge difference to the green economy. Sublime recommends four stores that strive to put positive impact before profit.
