B Corp Gear to Help You Ease Into Ethical Fashion
When we reach for our favorite outfit in the morning, it’s likely that we don’t always consider the environmental and human impact of what we wear.
Thankfully, there are companies that weave purpose, sustainable practices, and care into their business models and products. And while the burden to shop ethically shouldn’t be placed on the consumer, it can be empowering to know there are items made with people and the planet in mind.
The Certified B Corporations in this guide offer ethical and sustainable options of essential items. Check out these three offerings from B Corps that prioritize ethical practices.
