Before we start to determine if the clothes we are buying are sustainable and ethical we first need to outline what even is sustainable fashion. According to Wikipedia sustainable fashion is, “Sustainable fashion is a movement and process of fostering change to fashion products and the fashion system towards greater ecological integrity and social justice.
Sustainable fashion concerns more than just addressing fashion textiles or products. It comprises addressing the whole system of fashion.” – Wikipedia.
