The Top 5 Ethical Fashion Resources

Learning about ethical fashion can be a strange mix of feelings. Sometimes you feel overwhelmed with what to read, watch, look at. And then at other times, it seems that there just isn’t enough of what you’re looking for. However, there are certain ethical fashion resources that won’t ever disappoint. I share them all in my resource library, but if you’re just looking for a few of the best ones to get you started, here they are:

1. The True Cost

The Top 5 Ethical Fashion Resources | The Curious Button, an ethically conscious fashion + lifestyle blog | The True Cost

It wouldn’t be a reliable list if this documentary wasn’t on it. It covers the clothes we wear, the people who make them, and the impact the industry is having on our world. An essential watch for anyone wanting to learn more.

2. The Shirt On Your Back

Also a documentary, but interactive and shorter (about 30 minutes). It follows the story of one garment worker and also gives concise information about the Bangladesh garment industry.

3. Last Week Tonight with John Oliver: Fashion

A slightly more humorous, yet equally important take on fast fashion, as told by John Oliver. If you’re looking for a more shareable video, this one is it.

4. Magnifeco by Kate Black

The Top 5 Ethical Fashion Resources | The Curious Button, an ethically conscious fashion + lifestyle blog | Magnifeco by Kate Black

A really informative and unbiased book that looks at the ethical and sustainable issues within every division in fashion, including shoes, outerwear, fur, leather, and even cosmetics. I wrote a mini-review of it that you can read here.

For more book recommendations, take a look at the resource library.

5. Project JUST

The Top 5 Ethical Fashion Resources | The Curious Button, an ethically conscious fashion + lifestyle blog | Project JUST

This is the single most practical and useful consumer website related to ethical and sustainable fashion. You can find completely unbiased and deeply researched information onΒ all of your top favourite brands and all their (un)ethical and (un)sustainable business practices, as well as how transparent they are about what goes on in their factories.
