We’re Maša and Michael Ofei (M & M), a married couple, currently based in Canberra, Australia, and the creators behind The Minimalist Vegan.

Through this blog, we’re on a mission to inspire millions of people to live with less stuff and more compassion. A big ask…we know. But it’s an idea we believe is worth fighting for. With mindless consumerism at an all-time high, there’s no time to waste!

OVER 45 OF THE BEST ETHICAL & SUSTAINABLE CLOTHING BRANDS IN 2020

Have you been looking for ethical and sustainable clothing brands but have struggled because you know you’d have to spend hours upon hours doing the research yourself? We feel your pain. This is how this post came about.

OVER 45 OF THE BEST ETHICAL & SUSTAINABLE CLOTHING BRANDS IN 2020

Have you been looking for ethical and sustainable clothing brands but have struggled because you know you’d have to spend hours upon hours doing the research yourself? We feel your pain. This is how this post came about.

A few years ago we shared an insightful Q & A with Joshua Katcher from The Discerning Brute. He shared his views and research on human rights and animal cruelty as it relates to the fashion industry. Since that post, TMV readers were keen to take action and find ethical fashion stores that they could support.

Having awareness of what’s really going on behind the scenes is always a good first step. However, we know when we first discovered the truth, we felt overwhelmed with what to do next.

Note: this list was last updated on Thursday the 5th of March 2020.

Here are some of the questions we’ve asked
Where do we shop? How can we trust the brands? Do the clothes perform and match our style? What does a sustainable textile look like?

When you start asking these questions, you quickly realise just how hard it is to find stores and brands that you can trust. You might find a great fair-trade fashion store that sells gorgeous garments, but all of their items are leather.

Conversely, you may come across an amazing vegan store but their products aren’t fair-trade or just plain daggy.

So are you ready for a highly-curated list of ethical and sustainable clothing brands you can trust?

Well, we can say with 100% confidence that you’re in the right place!

Why are we so confident?

This is the 8th iteration of this post over the last three years. Each time we update it, we find better brands. This version is a complete revamp.
In a past life, we ran an online store where it was our job to source products that ticked all our ethical boxes, including sustainability, cruelty-free/vegan, fair-trade, and organic where possible.
Historically, we desperately wanted to find brands that met our criteria, regardless of style. Even though fashion is subjective, we’ve done our best to focus more on performance and quality. For example, we’d want you to be happy with the vegan leather boots you just bought. Not only accepting something that is comparatively less quality than the alternatives because you’re trying to be a mindful consumer. We know this feeling of disappointment all too well.
