January Sales on Ethical Fashion, Eco Living and Sustainable Style

Ethical fashion often gets criticized for being too expensive compared to the staple high street stores. Sale season therefore offers a great opportunity to try out a new brand or treat yourself to something you wouldn’t normally buy with many eco brands offering brilliant deals online and in stores.

Ethical/Sustainable Sale Bargains

Have you been shopping the post-Christmas sales yet? I hope you weren’t one of those mad people who got up at 4am on Boxing Day to hit the shops . . .

A common complaint for shopping ethically is that it is more expensive, and often it is pricier than the alternatives but that is because the alternatives might be made unsustainably. Part of ethical shopping is simply to buy less but buy better, therefore you can spend the same amount on one great thing that will last rather than two or three badly made things which won’t last. In the sales though, everything suddenly becomes much more accessible. Here are my top sale picks:

People Tree have a fantastic sale on women’s and men’s wear and their clothes are beautifully made from sumptuous fabrics. The Yellow Orla Kiely Trench Coat is now half price (£75) and will see you through spring. And the gorgeous Dragonfly Skater Dress is 75% off, now £13.75 from £55.

Designer label Edun have up to 60% off men’s and women’s wear. This men’s Cable Mix Hand Knit Sweater is now around £265, from £440.

Chinti and Parker have 30% off their winter cashmere and cotton knitwear and luxury basics. Their cashmere Boyfriend Sweater is now £227.50. Monkee Genes, the fair trade, organic denim brand have up to 40% off. Ascension have a whopping 75% off. Ethical Superstore have a sale with saving of up to 50%. These pretty fair trade Christmas baubles are half price, now £6.50.

Nomads have 50% a wide range of traditional styles, and there are some sale bits in ASOS Green Room, such as on the jewellery by Made. Pants to Poverty have 33% off these pink panties. If you know of more great bargains, tweet me!
