10 Ethical Fashion Must-Haves for Spring


Spring is around the corner and the air is warming up! Our clocks are moving forward, and our closets will need a little makeover soon.

Isn’t so fun to break out the pastels and sandals after a long winter and put together a few fresh looks for warmer weather?

Wouldn’t it be even better if you could update your closet with items you were certain were sourced ethically, with fair labor practices, and that provided economic empowerment rather than slavery to their makers? Wouldn’t it be awesome if you could know who made your clothes (or shoes, or jewelry, or accessories)?

Well, you can. There are great companies out there making all the right clothing items for spring in all the right colors and doing it justly.

Here are ten great wardrobe updates for spring that are ethically-sourced:

About Author

Colleen Mitchell is a Catholic wife and mom to five sons here on earth, one little saint she held for a brief three months, and four she has yet to meet. After the death of their sixth son, Bryce, she had her husband founded St. Bryce Missions, seeking a way to use their experience of grief, loss and the tender mercy of God in the midst of it to bring glory to God and serve His Church. She currently serves a foreign missionary to the Cabecar peoples in the rural Chirripo mountains of Costa Rica and hopes soon to be bringing Christ's love to the Church in Tanzania, Africa as well. She is passionate about loving the poor, living the call of the Gospel radically, living with the Eucharist as the source and summit of all her endeavors and becoming a saint. Not wanting to be a lonely saint, she hopes her written words will encourage others to join her on the journey. Colleen blogs Blessed Are The Feet
