- Start by asking #whomademyclothes and tracking down the story behind the products you want to buy.
- Critically think, debate, read and watch documentaries about organic farming and fair-trade initiatives.
- You should also check the quality and sustainability of the items you want to wear (and want them to last).
- You can always buy some stylish clothes from vintage / second-hand shop on your street.
- Try to support local brand or hand-made designer. Local design is original and artisanal work is unique!
- Re-create / up-cycle your clothes from last season. Surprise yourself by creative mood.
- Do not forget to support organizations and initiatives (Ethical fashion initiative, Clean clothes campaign, Fashion revolution etc.) in their work to improve human rights and working conditions of garments manufacture workers in developing countries.
