The Best Ethical Activewear at the Om Yogashow

Last weekend I visited the Om Yoga Show at London’s Alexandra Palace, which hosted a range of exhibitors, free workshops and paid-for classes, all with the common theme of promoting a healthy and active lifestyle. Although I had expected to see a variety of yoga clothing brands in amongst the rest of the stands, I was pleasantly surprised to see that the vast majority were promoting some kind of ethical values, either through transparent supply chains, by supporting charities, or by using materials such as recycled polyester and organic cotton. So if you’re looking for fashionable activewear that’s both kind to the planet and people, read on for my pick of the best below!

Slow Fashion and Sustainability News: September edition

I can't believe September's over already - the most important month in the fashion calendar has absolutely flown by, with designers and retailers around the world launching their new season collections and fashion weeks taking place in New York, London, Milan and Paris. It's coming to that time of year when the evenings are getting steadily darker and colder, but at least in the ethical fashion world there's been a lot to celebrate - H&M launched their new recycling campaignHuffington Post dedicated the entire month to ethical fashion, and the Ethical Writers' Coalition chose September to focus on the benefits of shopping second hand - check out my post on the best second hand clothing websites here.
