Ethical Clothing Guide: Canadian Edition, Volume 1
Are you looking to support Canadian Fashion Brands who actually pay their workers and keep the environment in mind? Me too, that's why I created this guide. The bonus? It's hyperlinked, all in one place, and includes all styles of clothing for womxn, men and children.
Each of the 40 brands are organized into Brand Spotlights, which include: the brand name, a collection of photos to help you see the styles they offer, the size, price and product range, a blurb about who the brand is, and links to shop/follow on Instagram.
This volume includes ethical and sustainable options for: maternity/nursing, intimates, sleepwear, swimwear, loungewear, activewear basics, everyday clothing, workwear, suiting, outerwear, special occasions, custom pieces, masks, headwraps/scrunchies, socks, and a few options for hats, bags, shoes, sunglasses and jewelry. All forty of the brands included sell womxnswear, ten of them sell menswear, and seven of them sell childrenswear. Over 20 of the brands included offer size inclusive options (sizing that extends above an XL).
This guide will be updated each month with 10-20 new brands—at which time another volume of the guide will be released. A discount code will be available to those who purchased previous volumes of the guide as new ones are released. For volume two, releasing September 24, there will be a focus on shoes and accessories (the categories currently lacking in volume one). For volume three, releasing October 24, there will be a focus on adding brands who cater to the winter season.
