What Makes a dress ethical or sustainable?

There are a variety of factors that influence if a dress is sustainable and/or ethically made.

The first thing to analyse is the materials. Is it made from a natural fibre? Is it recycled? Is this material biodegradable? The best fabrics for sustainable dresses include organic cotton, linen, hemp and tencel. It's also important to evaluate the broader eco-friendly initiatives of the brand. Look out for things like compostable satchels and how their overall waste management strategies.

The gold standard for ethical certifications is Fair Trade, but there are many other independent bodies, like WRAP, that also audit manufacturers. A similar version of this locally is Ethical Clothing Australia.

Keep an eye out for such certifications for trusted and verified proof of ethical practices. Not every brand discloses where and how their products are made, so you may have to email them asking for more information. Most brands love chatting to their customers, so don't be shy to ask any questions!

What are the Best sustainable fabrics for dresses?

Due to the advancements in slow fashion, you have plenty of materials to choose from for your next sustainable dress. Some popular choices include linen, organic cotton, tencel and even recycled fabrics. No fabric is definitively better than the other as they all have environmental benefits.

Another eco-friendly option is to shop dresses at your local op shop. Although the dress may be made from sustainable materials, you are giving the dress a second life and preventing it from potentially going to landfill. Shopping secondhand is also a very affordable strategy too!
