Ethical Brands to Follow

Ethical Brands to Follow

We purchase. We shop. We spend. It has become a part of our daily lives that we are buying without being mindful of how we spend and where we spend our dollars

However, spending your dollars is a powerful tool to demand the kind of society you want. Here at Fair Anita, we believe that by supporting ethical brands, we can direct funds to where it matters while involving shoppers and customers in the process!

As part of our #changemakingfashion challenge, we urge you to be inspired to support ethical brands to break the norms of the fashion industry. Here are our favorites:
