Ethical Consumer Magazine- The Fashion Issue
The 30th Birthday Issue of Ethical Consumer is dedicated to The Fashion Industry. It draws attention to the failure of fashion companies to ensure that they are paying employees fair wages and producing goods that is not damaging the environment. It contains a report of the 'most ethical' and 'least ethical' companies voted by their readers over the last 30 years. They discuss the increasing number of viable alternative choices and campaign actions that people can take to help raise this issue and make change within the fashion industry.
