Slow fashion is the answer to the ethical and sustainable nightmare that is the modern fashion industry.

At Ecobuy we understand that our clothes make a statement in more ways than one. Fashion is not just pieces of fabric that we use to cover our bodies – they protect us from the elements and tell the world who the wearer is.

But the clothes we wear also have an impact on our environment. The modern fashion industry has significant negative impacts on the social and environmental sustainability. But slow fashion is the answer.

Here, we examine the ethical and sustainable ramifications of the modern fashion industry, as well as how we – and you – can combat fast fashion.

We share tips and tricks on how to dress more sustainably. We also share with you our favourite slow fashion brands and products.

Ethical fashion doesn’t have to be difficult or overwhelming, and when it does, we’re here to help you to navigate the world of sustainable fashion.
