Is Your Favorite Fashion Brand Sustainable? This App Lets You Know
When it comes to shopping for the holidays, it’s easy to get caught up in trying to snag the best-looking stuff before anyone else, and thinking about the ethical standards of the brands we buy might not always be at the top of the list.
With this in mind, an Australia-based nonprofit, Ethical Consumers Australia, created a free app that gives shoppers the tools they need to search the environmental, labor, and animal treatment standards of some of their favorite brands so they can make more informed purchases at retail stores.
Good on You provides users with ethical ratings on some 1,000 brands—the app lists more than 3,000 fashion brands in Australia’s 100 largest shopping centers—and gives suggestions on clothing, footwear, and accessory stores that match each shopper’s values, budget, and style.
