A WAY TO ACCESS SUSTAINABLE FASHION MORE EASILY
Should ethical and sustainable fashion ever be offered at a discount? It’s something I discussed in my Black Friday newsletter. I concluded that if it helps people to access a more conscious way to dress and avoid buying from fast fashion brands then YES, YES, YES!
Saying that, we at Good Maker Tales are not advocates of buying what you don´t need or overconsumption. However, I’d hazard a guess that most people who end up on this page are already aware of some of the problems with the fashion industry and are much more likely to be conscious consumers who take a slow approach to building their ethical wardrobe.
So, I’ve rounded up some special deals from sustainable brands offered to our readers and will add more as they are offered. I hope you enjoy discovering these great brands and that the discounts help you to shop more sustainably!
