Ethletic

Ethletic created the first Fairtrade organic cotton sneakers on the market. Their shoes are vegan and made with responsible rubber, plus they champion their staff with fair pay. They're the sustainable alternative to Converse.

Why bother?

The garment industry has long functioned with low accountability, dependant on consumers who don't ask questions. I've started to filter who I buy clothes from according to how transparent their website is. Companies like Ethletic have nothing to hide so you can find out all about their production line and business practices on their website. Other (ahem, huge) companies aren't so honest about their dealings online. I want to support those who are trading and creating products honestly, not just with verbal support but through buying their products too.
