In my last blog post The Cost of The Green Carpet Challenge I complained about the fact that the Green Carpet Challenge campaign lacked proper direction in terms of showing the everyday person ethical and affordable clothing. Although the campaign is specifically for public figures to promote ethical designers, I personally feel that there needs to be more awareness of ethical brands that the general public can support as they are the consumers that buy in to fast fashion. As a student I am more than aware that it is easy to buy the cheapest deal possible to fit your budget so for this particular post I thought I should do my own research into British eco-fashion brands that are both easy on the eye and bank account.

Affordable British Eco-fashion brands

London:

1. Komodo started in 1988 and offers a clothing range for both men and women using Organic Cotton, Hemp, Bamboo, Tencel etc. Generally Komodo’s range is has simple and classic looks.

2. People Tree was featured in ‘The True Cost’ documentary as the Eco-Fashion brand were partnered with Fair Trade. They have quite a wide variety of clothing particularly for those that love their patterned clothes.

3. Nancy Dee are a vintage-inspired British brand that make a variety of clothes for women and currently have an end of season sale until 30th September.

4. Brain Tree Clothing also have a sale! They have quite a few different ranges for both men and women and conveniently are one of the very few places that actually sell underwear for a reasonable price.

5. Speaking of underwear, Pants to Poverty also sell underwear for both men and women at a reasonable price.

6. Boho Hemp describe themselves as an everyday ethical fashion brand for women, men and even for children Boho Hemp sells other brands like Wills London and Gandys.

 

Derbyshire:

7. Monkee Genes is based in Derbyshire and sell all kinds of trousers and jeans in different colours. Monkee Genes makes clear that they are against fast fashion and aim to provide more awareness surrounding the nature of fast fashion.

 

Manchester:

8. Based in Manchester, Beaumont Organics have a variety of clothing and accessories for women. They seem to have a great monochrome and plaid collection.

 

Online:

9. Asos have their own section called ‘Eco Brands’ that sell organic and vegan clothing and accessories with over 500 styles to choose from.

10. H&M Conscious is probably the most famous from this list due to the reputation that H&M have as a highstreet brand. One thing that is great about H&M Conscious is that they provide maternity wear.

Hi! This is kind of off topic but I need some guidance from an established blog.
Is it difficult to set up your own blog? I’m not very techincal
but I can figure things out pretty quick. I’m thinking about setting
up my own but I’m not sure where to begin. Do you have any tips or
suggestions? Cheers

Hi Madison – It’s not particularly difficult to set up a blog; it really depends on what you want to blog about and what your personal style is. There are plenty of resources & tutorials online to help you get the jist of blogging. I use WordPress hosting for my site, but I do know some people find it difficult. Some people I know find Weebly quite easy to use. I hope that points you in the right direction 🙂

Hi there, I think your site might be having internet browser
compatibility issues. When I take a look at your site in Safari, it
looks fine however, if opening in IE, it’s got some overlapping
issues. I merely wanted to provide you with a quick heads up!
Aside from that, great site!

Hi thank you so much for letting me know 🙂 , when I open it in all the different platforms I have it seems fine but I will try to get that fixed asap.

Hey there! Quick question that’s completely off topic.

Do you know how to make your site mobile friendly? My weblog looks weird when viewing from
my iphone4. I’m trying to find a template or plugin that might be able
to correct this problem. If you have any suggestions, please share.
Cheers!

Hi! I know this is kinda off topic however I’d figured I’d ask.

Would you be interested in trading links or maybe guest writing a
blog article or vice-versa? My site discusses a lot of the same topics as
yours and I feel we could greatly benefit from each other.

If you happen to be interested feel free to shoot me an e-mail.
I look forward to hearing from you! Terrific blog by
the way!
