Making the switch to ethical fashion when you’re used to shopping at places like H&M can be a bit of a stretch. It’s unfamiliar territory for most. I think ethical fashion has gotten a bad rep for being boring and “neutral” and this post is here to prove otherwise! These are the ethical fashion brands to try if you love H&M!
I’ve talked about H&M on the blog before. They’re notorious for greenwashing and presenting themselves as a sustainable brand when they are anything but. Read that full post here.
Not only do these brands come without the negative environmental and humane impact but they’re also stylish and let you keep expressing yourself the way you want. Your clothes don’t have to be “boring” to be ethical!
