We are so glad you found us @sabrina_nizeti thanks for shopping your values! #regram⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ "I’ve finally found vegan shoes! Thanks to @etiko_fairtrade shoes. And @jamesaspey for posting about them. @etiko_fairtrade shoes are 100% vegan, fair trade, made from organic cotton and get an A+ on the ethical fashion list. These shoes are kind to animals, the environment and people. Everyone is fairly paid, no slave labor and all sources listed where they get materials from. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ PLUS they are a small Australian business AND carbon neutral 🌏 I used to love fast fashion and always needed to buy the newest kicks I’d have shoes delivered every week. I never worried about who had to make them or who had to die for them. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ To put all that into perspective let’s talk about Converse. They have minimal worker empowerment initiatives (D +) and received the bottom score (F) in relation to implementing a living wage or improving wages across their supply chain. So think about that next time you need a new pair of sneakers. 👟 👟 👟 #vegan #cruletyfree #veganshoes #ethicalfashion #fashion #veganfashion #carbonneutral #environmentalist #zerowaste #reducereuserecycle #yayforearth "⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ . ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #bethechange #fashionrevolution #consciousfashion #sustainablefashion #consciousconsumer #protecttheplanet #fairtradefashion #fairtradeorganic #veganorganic #ethicalconsumer #wearnoevil #whomademyclothes #ethicalsneakers #vegansneakers #crueltyfreefashion #veganshoes #organiccotton #fsccertified
