Whilst recently researching an article on ethical and eco fashion, it suddenly struck me that eco fashion has become distinctly more affordable with the growth of companies like People Tree and Ascension, even Urban Outfitters stocks a line called Renewal Rare which brings back to life old vintage pieces.

Ascension stocks a number of different labels including Bibico, Karen Cole its own label which includes organic cotton and bamboo clothes produced ethically at price comparable to the mid to high end of the high street (the above two items are in the sale).
The great thing with about ethical and eco fashion is that not only do you get a guilt free conscious but also a really comfortable and well made piece of clothing that is likely to last for years. As gorgeous and affordable as these clothes are, I will be sticking to my shopping ban for now, as buying clothes that you don't really need, however eco friendly the clothes are, is not really sustainable or ethical.
