Clothes with a Message - Ethical & Sustainable

Have you been looking for ethical and sustainable clothes that also spread an important message? Look no further.

Bold prints are cool. They’re even cooler when they spread a message – one that’s a little more valuable and interesting than “C’est La Vie” or “But first, Coffee”. (Sorry, no offence to anyone!) Often, fast fashion brands like to spread positive vibes by making T-shirts with words like “Be Kind” or “Girl Power” or stuff like that. 

But frankly, there is no point in wearing a top with a feminist or inspiring slogan printed on it, if the garment worker who made it is not treated and paid fairly, and if the production of the T-Shirt is harmful for the environment and animals. 

So, here is a selection of ETHICAL & SUSTAINABLE clothing pieces that will help you spread your message!
