The moral controversies in the fashion industry are primarily concerned with working condtions and environmental sustainability. It's no secret that many major fashion brands opt for shady and sometimes downright dangerous labor practices for the sake of proft. And the water-wasting effects of cotton as well as the emmisions released by producton plants manfacturing textiles such as polyester are leaving lasting impacts on the planet.
The goal behind ethical clothes shopping is to support brands that promote workers and utilize sustainabe farming practices while avoiding those who are focused only on fast fashion and who value profit over people and the planet.
