Emma Watson is an incredible role model who continually advocates for positive change. We love that about her.
Arguing that women and men need to stand together for gender equality, Emma helped kick off the UN's HeForShe campaign in 2014, which we immediately joined. More recently, she has been a strong voice for sustainable fashion. With sweatshops continuing to exploit textile workers around the world despite decades of efforts to expose their unethical ways, her fight to raise awareness is admirable. Fashion should do more than empower the consumer - it should empower the artisans who make our clothes.
It's amazing to see prominent individuals taking a stand for fair trade and ethical products in the fashion industry and beyond. As a social enterprise, we are so grateful to be a part of this movement and connect with a community that is passionate about creating change. Ethical living and slow fashions bloggers are a huge voice in this. They dedicate their time and energy so that we can make the most conscious choices.
So, time to share! Here are 6 of our favorite blogs advocating for ethical fashion and sustainable living.
