What is ethical fashion?
Ethical fashion is fashion that prioritizes human rights and environmental sustainability during design, sourcing and manufacturing of clothing and accessories. It’s a term used to describe the impacts of the fashion industry that many people don’t think about, like the working conditions of the clothing makers, as well as the sustainability of the factories producing them and their effect on our environment. Ethical fashion plays an active role in reducing poverty, creating sustainable livelihoods, and minimizing the fashion industry’s environmental impact. The Ethical Fashion Forum has created a set of criteria that distinguishes ethical from non-ethical fashion and draws on the importance of defending workers’ rights, animal rights, minimizing water use, supporting sustainable livelihoods, using eco-friendly fabrics, and utilizing efficient energy practices for production. Ethical fashion considers the well-being of workers, the environment, and animals.
What is cruelty-free clothing?
Cruelty-free means no animals or living species were harmed in the process of clothing manufacturing, production, or sales. All Bella Vita believes the well-being of all living species should not be sacrificed for fashion.
What is sustainable fashion?
Sustainable fashion refers to utilizing sustainable practices in the design, production, manufacturing, transport, storage, marketing, and sale of clothing, accessories, shoes, and other fashion items. Sustainable fashion aims to minimize the damaging effects of fashion on our environment. Whether it’s using renewable energy resources in manufacturing facilities, or using natural resources efficiently during the product’s production, sustainable fashion is fashion that keeps the environment’s best intentions in mind.
