The Green Room - More Ethical and Eco Fashion

I am starting to get a little concerned about when I start shopping again after my shopping ban (although months away) and how I will manage to find what I need by just buying quality clothes to last, second hand, vintage and eco fashion. There is already quite a bit of choice in terms of affordable eco fashion from People Tree, Ascension and even a Renewal at Urban Outfitters, a brand that uses recycled materials, but there is still no where near as much as there is for conventional fashion.

I was really pleased to hear about the new Green Room at ASOS which is the latest offering of afforable ethical and eco fashion. The Green Room includes Fairtrade pieces, ASOS's own brand Fairtrade cotton, organic cotton T shirts and some pieces made in disadvantaged communities in Africa.
Whilst it is a fairly small selection at the moment (which I really hope will increase), there are some great basics/ essentials, some very lovely jewellery, a designer collaboration and even some organic cotton T shirts designed by some of my favourite fashion bloggers.

Green Room at ASOS is really cool in my opinion. By the way, I love that pic of the charm bracelet by 'Made'.
