10 Reasons to wear Ethical Clothing

Green Products

Nowadays it is easy to dress fashionably and wear organic and ethical clothing.  Stockists of EcoHip green products, EcoHip.co.uk is offering its customers 10 top tips to ethical clothing, why to wear them, where to get them and how to look good and feel good whilst helping the environment. 

  1. Gone are the days of looking like an eco-warrior or student. You can now shop high street to designer conscience.*
  2. An estimated two tons of clothing is dumped in landfills every year. Rivers are being destroyed thanks to the toxic dyes used to get the correct shade of blue for the denim we all love so much.
  3. ASOS has a Green Room! I think and hope more clothing websites will add one of these (even if it’s just a PR strategy)
  4. As Livia Firth says, ‘Waste is endemic in fashion and it’s easy to lose sight of the enormous impact or footprint it creates.’ She feels so strongly in recycling old garments that for the past 2 years she has set herself a ‘green carpet challenge’ during the awards season. If she can do it, so can we!
  5. If you know you’re not going to wear Ethical Clothing you can still make a difference by buying fewer clothes. Instead of buying all the catwalk ‘must-haves,’ that end up at the charity shop or the back of the wardrobe after a few months, try buying classics that you’ll have for years.  As we get older this is a better look anyway!
  6. The t-shirts designed by Katharine Hamnett, Richard Nicoll and Giles Deacon for the EJF (Environmental Justice Foundation) look really stylish and are made of carbon-neutral, organic cotton. Plus all profits from the t-shirt sales are invested in campaigning.
  7. Have a clear-conscience! Simple
  8. You can wear Sustainable fabrics such as wool, hemp, bamboo and soya which look and feel great.
  9. Wearing sustainable fabrics are natural so therefore better for your skin and health in general. If you want to wash them in natural detergent use Aquaballs or soapnuts, another way to help save the planet and yourself too. Click here to find out more about eco friendly washing.
  10. Help save the world as much as you can (every little bit helps)

We believe that there is a complete synergy between what is best for you and what is best for the environment.Do you ever stop and think about what goes into the products that we use on a daily basis?Did you know that everyday products such as toiletries and cosmetics are filled with harmful petro-chemicals, parabens, GMOs (Genetically Modified Organisms), DEAs, MEAs, TEAs, artificial colours, fragrances and fillers. The list goes on…Why aren’t there stricter regulations concerning these products?Are the waste products of industry being dumped and sold in our personal care and cleaning products?Who is stopping this and telling it how it is?We feel that we have a responsibility to both our customers and to the world around us to ask ourselves these questions every day. That is why we only sell the most responsible and sustainable products.Responsibility to ourselves – All our products are free of toxic chemicals wherever possible and endorsed by Ecocert and the Soil Association.Responsibility to others – We promote Fairtrade produce to stop exploitation and benefit those communities.Responsibility to local communities – We use local suppliers and products wherever possible in order to support the local economy and reduce our carbon footprintResponsibility to the environment – All our products use minimal packaging and recyclable materials.
