Today we’re talking about ethical brands that are actually affordable for most of us. We all know that it’s a good idea to buy something ethical or eco-friendly, but let’s face it. A lot of us can’t afford to spend a fortune on sustainable clothing brands.
That’s why I listed 5 sustainable brands that are affordable. They are maybe a bit more expensive than low price giants like H&M, but they are not more expensive than mid-range brands. All brands are fair + eco except for Able, a brand by women for women that focusses on producing ethically.
1. Thinking Mu
This is a sustainable brand based in Barcelona. They make casual wear for men & women with an artsy touch.
They have a basic line and a collection with printed t-shirts, dresses & more.
2. Armed Angels
Armed Angels is an eco & fair brand that makes contemporary style clothing for men and women. In their collection you’ll find basic design, but also a lot of prints & colors!
This is a lifestyle brand that focusses on ending generational poverty through providing economic opportunities for women. They even display the wages of the workers on their website. It’s a beautiful initiative for women by women.
This brand’s style is casual with a lot of basics. You can also shop for jewelry & interior decorations.
4. Know the origin (KTO)
KTO is a minimal lifestyle brand from the UK run by two women. They make sustainable timeless basics and underwear. Recently they added a section with sustainable lifestyle items like zero waste essentials & reusable supplies.
4. People Tree
I think this is one of the bigger ethical & eco-friendly brands out there. They started in 1991 making clothes in a sustainable way proving that fashion can go hand in hand with human labour rights & local economy. Their style?" Contemporary, versatile designs and playful, exclusive prints inspired by the V&A archives create stylish, innovative and affordable fashion while respecting people and the planet."
