I think one of the best ways to introduce shoppers to conscious consumerism is by meeting them where they are already shopping.

12 ETHICAL CLOTHING BRANDS FOR MEN

8 ETHICAL CLOTHING BRANDS EMBRACING CURVES

Ethical fashion can be tricky to find in general, but especially for sizes that aren't in the S-L range. Check out these brands that carry XL-XXXL! Some might say plus size, I personally am not a fan of this phrase because it seems to separate these sizes as "the other." XL and up are sizes too! The reality is people wear a variety of sizes and the clothing industry shouldn't shame people based on their size or make it more difficult for XL-XXXL to find clothes. I’ve also noticed that even if a brand offers sizes beyond L, they don’t always display their clothing on body types with people who have curves. I think it’d be great to see more variety in the models shown in pictures, so that women are able to visualize themselves in the garment. All in all, we have some brands moving in the right direction to be more inclusive! These ethical fashion brands are taking a step in the right direction and encouraging all body types to take part in the conscious fashion movement and I'm loving it!
