One of the first steps towards building a more ethical wardrobe is to avoid shopping from the high-street and on major shopping websites. But weening ourselves off old habits isn’t easy, especially with the lure of free shipping and easy returns.
ASOS is one of the largest online shopping sites, with over 60,000+ products available, it would be difficult not to find something you like. If you’re trying to shop ethically, you don’t have to completely strike ASOS from your list of places to visit. Although the site is home to hundreds of fast fashion brands, they do have an eco-friendly edit of sustainable clothing, accessories, and beauty supplies, which includes their own fair-trade label, ASOS Africa; making it easier to shop consciously, ethically, and with a happy heart.
If you’re struggling to find your footing when it comes to shopping ethically online, here are a few brands you can shop straight from the ASOS website.
1 | Matt & Nat
Eco-friendly vegan bags, wallets, and accessories. I recently upgraded my wardrobe to include the Matt & Nat Double Zip Purse and can attest to its beautiful design and quality. The range available is limited on ASOS compared to the official website, yet there’s still a good mix of handbags, backpacks, wallets and cardholders available to peruse.
2 | Sister & Co
Sister & Co make my favourite brand of coconut oil, a staple product for every natural skin care routine. If you want to try some ethically made, 100% natural skin and body care products, this is the brand to go for - just remember to visit their website for the full range.
3 | TOMS
Casual footwear with a conscience; for every pair you buy, TOMS provides a new pair of shoes to a child in need. The range is limited to relaxed flats, lace up trainers, and classic canvas shoes but if you’ll looking for a casual daily footwear, TOMS is your best option.
4 | People Tree
People Tree is an ethical and environmentally sustainable fashion brand with Fairtrade certified clothing - being the first clothing company ever to receive the World Fair Trade Organisation Fair Trade product mark. This brand provides a selection ranging from casual day dresses to office appropriate shirts and jackets.
5 | Nude By Nature
An Australian make-up brand with native ingredients and no synthetics or preservatives; 100% cruelty-free and PETA certified, Nude by Nature doesn’t test on animals and uses natural ingredients to create high-quality make-up you can feel good about using.
