Ethical Clothing for Australia
Here at Fairtees, we want you to know the ethics that guide our clothes range, from the growing of the fibres to delivery to your door (and hopefully even beyond there into clothing afterlife!)
We believe that fair trade is of great concern to any commodity business, and deserves particular attention in industries that are otherwise rife with worker exploitation. That is why we only supply fair trade clothing.
As well as respecting one another by properly valuing the work required to make our favourite clothes, we believe it is also important to consider and reduce the environmental impact of our fashion. Using organic farming methods can benefit not only the environment, but also farmers. It keeps the farming land healthier without using synthetic pesticides or fertilisers, thus reducing the health risks for farmers too! So in the quest for eco friendly clothing (friendly to the environmental and social eco system), Fairtees has opted to supply all organic clothing.
To read a little more about organic cotton or why we love organic clothing as an eco-friendly option, see Organic Cotton Clothing for Australia. For more information about our organic clothing from an organisational and certification standpoint, visit the Soil Association and Global Organic Textile Standard or Textile Exchange websites.
We are proud to sell our eco-friendly and ethical clothing to Australia - not just because it's fair trade, or organic. But because it looks great too!
There's no compromise here- you don't have to step into a world of unwearable or for-one-occasion fashion. This is organic fair trade fashion for every day wear. There's no statement to be made - except that you look plain old awesome in your (what you know is) eco and ethical clothing.
So that's a little about your Fairtees getup until it became yours. We like to think that we can also promote and grow the movement for sustainable fashion with the little steps we take along that journey. But when the tees land on your doorstep, it's up to you to keep that going. For ideas, visit our blog and add your ideas for sustainable fashion to the mix too.
