THE SHOPPING DIRECTORY

CLOTHING   //   DENIM   //   FOOTWEAR  //  ACCESSORIES/HANDBAGS
The Shopping Directory includes those fashion designers/brands who not only have a strong ethical vision, but are design/style leaders as well. We made efforts to largely include products that are either available online or in national retailers and are affordably priced. In addition, this list of fashion designers/brands abide by AT LEAST ONE of the following standards:
– Use of local/U.S. production
– If overseas production is used, products are either made under Fair Trade or Living Wage conditions or the company has a stringent commitment to improving the lives and wages of garment workers
– Use of sustainable materials, which might include reclaimed/recycled materials
– Have a company-wide commitment to lowering their products’ environmental impact
