Earlier this week we highlighted our favorite ethical clothing brands, today we want to share some great retailers and online marketplaces that are filled to the brim with wonderful ethical shopping finds.
The Little Market
Lauren Conrad’s fashionable online retailer is a go to ethical shopping destination for accessories and gifts. Focused on helping empower women artisans to rise out of poverty and support their families, not only can you source perfect holiday finds here, but you will be sharing holiday cheer through your fair trade purchase.
Some of our favorite finds include this Striped Towel in Sea Foam and this Small Ikat Satchel in Sand.
We Dash Love
Shrimp on the barbie and gorgeous clothing in your closet. This Australian-based ethical online retailer aims to deliver threads and finds that you don’t have to question. The We Dash Love ethos is to “support the organizations that share a bright dream of the future and work with like minded people to encourage others to ask the simple questions: where did it come from? What were they paid? What impact did its production have on our earth?”
We - LOVE the following items from We Dash Love: These Adriana boots, this Bucket Bag in Olive, and these Arko Jeans.
Fashion forward and eco-friendly? That is where Amour Vert comes in. The name literally means, “green love,” in French, you can’t get much more sustainable than that. They believe that women should not have to sacrifice style in order to be sustainable. Additionally, they believe that together with consumers they can make the world more beautiful. Amen to that.
Black Friday Deal Alert: Amour Vert typically offers around 30% off from Black Friday through Cyber Monday so make sure to check out their sweet deals.
Our fave pieces to shop this Black Friday are their Florella Dress, their Hayley Long-Sleeve Shift Dress, and their Brandy Silk Wrap Dress.
A Boy Named Sue
We are enamored with the conscious goodies offered on this etailer. CoFounders Sam and Tania built their business off of a Sustainability Triangle, choosing only products that are Eco, Social, and Local conscious and we are thrilled with the curation. Their tagline is “Cool clothes with a conscience.” and boy does that ring true.
You’d better believe the following finds are in our shopping cart: this Oxblood Dress, this Lisa Linen Trench Coat, and this Tux Jumpsuit. We may have to book an impromptu trip to Hong Kong to thank these ethical fashion leaders in person.
Networking doesn’t just have to be for work, it can also be for ethical shopping. It is all about connecting and Ethica believes in connecting conscious consumers with companies who share a commitment to responsibility and transparency. You’ll find an array of brands from emerging designers, with high-style aesthetics and ethical and sustainable roots. Highly conscious, highly fashionable, totally in love.
We are currently wearing this dress with this purse and these earrings. Don’t mind us as we strut our stuff.
A, “carefully curated collection of fresh finds from independent designers around the world,” has never looked so good. We love Lesouque because they don’t neglect style when it comes to shopping ethical. They “look at the quality of pieces and how they are made because delivering exceptional quality and ethically made products is our brand essence.”
We are definitely gifting these bud vases for a holiday hostess gift, while rocking this Pink Triangle Scarf and this statement cocktail ring.
A true sister act. Founded by Kelli and Lindsay, Society B gives back 10% of their sales to partner charities. Giving back is the new black, after all.
We’re coveting this shirt, this sweater, and this beanie for our lazy Saturday mornings. Morning Starbucks run, here we come.
Rêve en Vert
Literally translated, dreaming in green, although drooling is more like it. Filled with stunning dresses, jewelry, lingerie, and bags, this ethical online retailer from across the pond offers sustainable finds from independent labels. We also love their blog, Rev Talk. Making the blogosphere more ethical one post at a time.
Because every holiday shopping spree needs some gorgeous jewelry: these earrings, this necklace, and this cuff are calling our name.
The perfect place to find a killer dress for your office holiday party, MadeFAIR is a thriving ethical fashion boutique. They partner with ethical clothing brands around the world and help bring increased responsibility and transparency to the global marketplace.
They have your work wardrobe covered. You can wear this Blue Woven Ikat Dress one day and this Monika Dress the next. Get ready to slay that coffee meeting.
If you still haven’t finished all your holiday shopping, check out UK-based Ethical Market, Fair-Trade and Organic Gather & See, beautiful Naja Lingerie Apolis, always hip Symbology, and colorful Mayamiko.
