    Oooh! As a family we love ethical clothing for lots of reasons – but mainly because it means that my children aren’t wearing something that’s been made in horrible conditions by other children! We also like clothes that are made with consideration for the environment as well as for other people so that we can reduce our impact while still remaining clothed (!), comfortable and stylish!!

  2. I love things that are natural and green and this clothing would make me feel good just wearing it knowing that it comes from natural products i would feel good and look good in it

  3. It feels great to wear- not only because of the good quality but because you know it’s helped and not hindered others. It’s like wearing a story with a happy ending, not a story you’d be ashamed of if anyone brought it up.

  4. I think ethical coathing is better quality i love things that are green

  5. I love ethnical food, ethical drink and ethnical clothing … in fact everything ethical ‘cos I’m a very ethical person!

    I feel happy wearing ethical clothing – looks good on the outside, feels good inside!

  7. I’ve been a vegan for over thirty years and it’s great that these days I can dress ethically as well as eat this way.

  8. love ethical clothing as I believe no-one should profit to the expense of someone else, in this case everyone from cotton farmers through to the sewing machinists

  9. Ethical fashion has lost its boring image – you can easily be fashion-forward and not compromise your ethics.

  10. Ethical clothing is “Exciting, Trendy, Heavenly, Innovative, Creative, Artistic and Lively”

  11. Ethical clothing gives me a warm feeling inside, knowing that no-one has suffered to make me look great

    I love ethical clothing because clothes represent who you are as a person and I love the fact that they not only look good but they stand for everything that’s important in life; the environment, nature and the world we live in.

  13. It’s a bit like organic food, it’s good for me, good for society and good for the planet 🙂

    I love ethical clothing because I believe in living as sustainable a life as I can. I’m doing a degree in Animal Management, so I’m a huge animal lover. I recycle everything I can and my family get annoyed with me for moaning at them about it! We need to live today how we want future generations to live, not wastefully so there won’t be anything left.

  15. its the natural feeling you get from wearing cloths that you know have not been made in the sweat shops involving little kids getting paid a pittence in terrible conditions your cloths do not leave a carbon footprint and thats what counts

  16. Because Ethical Clothing makes me feel FREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!
    Not only wearing it (they’re most comfortable clothes in the world!) but also by knowing that it is a good thing for Earth and all People, that makes me feel more FREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!

    And.. it also makes the whole world FREE! :))

    What could possibly be better reason than this? 😉

    I’m very green and think there is nothing better then wearing clothing that you know hasn’t been made to harm the environment

  19. It’s great to care about what I wear.

    ethical clothing is essential to our family , to buy something from the high street which has come from a child who works in awful conditions is wrong, clothes should be from sustainable sources that are made in conditions that benefits the communities they originate from. Ethical clothing has a better feel about it and wash better.

  21. It is not just about ethical clothing it is about a way of life, adjustment of attitude and if it was something we all thought and cared about there would be less poverty and heartache for the next generation.

  22. All unethical clothing should come with a health warning (not for us but for the workers ‘Unethical clothing seriously damages someones health’) and come with a dvd of exactly how it was made, there would be no repeat sales…. then these child abusing factory owners and stores would have to change their procedures in the making of their clothes and how they treat their workers…. as it stands ETHICAl clothing gives the wearer a clear conscience, a stylish wardrobe and comfort in the fact no one was exploited in its making… I have seen with my own eyes the conditions some work in and if everyone in the world could be party to what I saw there would be no unethical clothing/products available, to many turn a blind eye to save a few pennies, to many make £££ turning a blind eye to how their clothing is made.

    wearing Ethical clothing…is like giving a great big cuddle to a child somewhere!

    I always dress ethically ’cause I know it looks great,
    and going green is something to celebrate!

  24. Wearing an item of clothing should make us feel good, and if we feel good we look good. However, we can’t feel good wearing something if we know someone has suffered or been exploited to produce it. So in order to look your very best you should only wear ethical clothing – just another reason to make the ethical choice!

    It is a great way to look good and at the same time make your contribution towards a carbon neutral planet.

  26. I love ethical clothing as it makes me feel less guilty about all of the people around the world who are not as fortunate as ourselves, as well as the fact that quite often ethical clothing DOES feel a lot better to the touch and the designs are usually of a lot higher standard and much more individual!

    I love ethical clothing; I love it when someone asks “where you got that beautiful hoody from” and you can say…WELL you see this here hoody is made out of plastic bottles don’t you know! Yep, that’s right you might have drank out of this, and I’m wearing it. Ethical clothes for all their reasons make me mostly smile inside.

  28. The thing about ethical clothing is that it makes one huge fashion statement about who you are – That you care about clothes alright but not only that they look and feel beautiful and natural but that they are bought and sold with love and compassion.

    Since becoming vegan at the beginning of this year my fiancee and I have not only changed our diets but also diverted to ethical alternatives to our clothing purchases.

    People don’t ask enough questions about where their clothing comes from, how it’s made and who suffered for them to make their latest fashion statement.

    I used to be one of them.
    Now I hope to change other people’s perceptions of ethical clothing that I come into contact by what I wear. On trend, in fashion and all ethical!

  30. Peace of mind and quality rolled into one Ethical clothing is second to none!!
