Some of the shops on the high street that you might assume to be unethical are actually pretty surprising in their morality! Though many of them might not advertise themselves as ethical, and there might be room for improvement, sometimes it’s good that they’re just a little bit less bad! Every little counts when it comes to buying ethical fashion on the high street. Let’s take a look at the top ethical high street retailers…
People Tree are one of the UK’s leading sustainable and Fair Trade fashion brands, and when they have a sample sale you don’t want to miss out!

Half of the proceeds from this Sample Sale go to the People Tree Foundation!

Here at Hello Eco Living, we’ve been searching for the best eco brands out there, and we were pleasantly surprised with the delightful Slugs and Snails children’s tights.
The brand is Oeko Tex 100 certified and they currently have 6 organic lines in their collection, with a hope to go all organic by next year. We received a pair of Storm tights for Isabella to try out and she loves them. The non-slip soles are perfect for her in the early days of walking and the pattern looks amazing with a denim dress.
