High-street fashion is one of the biggest industries in the world and it isn't difficult to see why. Clothing may be essential, but the fashion market allows us an opportunity to use it for much more than covering up. From expressing individuality to making political statements, clothing plays a huge role in our day to day lives. As much as we love it though, the industry has a lot to answer for.
If you don't know where your latest clothing purchase was made, what its environmental impact was or if the workers were treated fairly in the process, it might be time to switch to labels offering complete visibility on all of these agendas. To get you started, we've rounded up the top high-end retailers making strides to change the fashion world into a more ethically-focused one.
With its slogan, "Being naked is the #1 most sustainable option. We're #2", Reformation is a label that has truly dedicated itself to being as ethical as possible. The cult US fashion label tracks its environmental footprint and even sends out quarterly sustainability reports so shoppers are fully aware of what their money is supporting. You can shop the brand from the Reformation online store and from Nordstrom.
A pioneer in sustainable fashion, People Tree has been working with Fair Trade cotton farmers for the past 25 years to produce its seasonal collections. As the first fashion company to be awarded the World Fair Trade Organisation product label, you can shop their gorgeous range of apparel, underwear and jewellery guilt-free from the People Tree site and ASOS.
Mango, also known as M.N.G, has been a longstanding supporter of ethical fashion. Using fabrics like TENCEL™ Lyocell, recycled polyester and organic cotton, for many of its clothes, the label is committed to strengthening its approach towards responsible fashion. Shop the range of clothing, shoes and accessories from THE ICONIC.
Scandi-chic label Vero Moda has recently released a new collection which focuses both on sustainability and modern elegance. Titled Aware, the line uses Tencel Lyocell, recycled cotton, organic cotton and recycled polyester to create its wardrobe staples. You can shop the brand from Australian stockists THE ICONIC and MYER.
Veja kicks may just be the world's most sustainable shoe. Made from raw materials sourced from organic farming and ecological agriculture, the brand is passionate about the environment. They also take on a huge social responsibility, tackling everything from protecting the Amazon to upcycling materials. Update your footwear and shop a pair from stockists like THE ICONIC and Net-a-Porter.
Arguably one of the first high street fashion labels to introduce ethical production methods, H&M finds new ways to use sustainable fabrics without compromising on style. The brand is now aiming to use 100% recycled or other sustainably-sourced materials by 2030. You can shop the label both from the H&M site and instore.
With the tagline "Better shoes for a better world", Swedish Hasbeens has put their best foot forward when it comes to ethical footwear. The label has been using sustainable material to make its shoes and accessories since it started in 2006 and is now a global phenomenon, selling in more than 20 countries. You can get your hands on a pair from the Swedish Hasbeens site.
Gather&See is an award-winning retailer offering sustainable fashion labels that don't compromise on style. The brand was born out of a desire to see ethical fashion that was cutting edge and fashion savvy. Representing a number of like-minded designers, you're bound to find pieces to fall in love with from this retailer. You can shop the range of sustainable fashion from the Gather&See site.
Online luxury boutique, Rêve En Vert, is referred to as "the Net-a-Porter of sustainable fashion".

finder.com.au is one of Australia's leading comparison websites. We compare from a wide set of major banks, insurers and product issuers.
finder.com.au has access to track details from the product issuers listed on our sites. Although we provide information on the products offered by a wide range of issuers, we don't cover every available product. You should consider whether the products featured on our site are appropriate for your needs and seek independent advice if you have any questions.
Products marked as 'Promoted' or "Advertisement" are prominently displayed either as a result of a commercial advertising arrangement or to highlight a particular product, provider or feature. Finder may receive remuneration from the Provider if you click on the related link, purchase or enquire about the product. Finder's decision to show a 'promoted' product is neither a recommendation that the product is appropriate for you nor an indication that the product is the best in its category. We encourage you to use the tools and information we provide to compare your options and find the best option for you.
The identification of a group of products, as 'Top' or 'Best' is a reflection of user preferences based on current website data. On a regular basis, analytics drive the creation of a list of popular products. Where these products are grouped, they appear in no particular order.
Where our site links to particular products or displays 'Go to site' buttons, we may receive a commission, referral fee or payment.
We try to take an open and transparent approach and provide a broad based comparison service. However, you should be aware that while we are an independently owned service, our comparison service does not include all providers or all products available in the market.
Some product issuers may provide products or offer services through multiple brands, associated companies or different labelling arrangements. This can make it difficult for consumers to compare alternatives or identify the companies behind the products. However, we aim to provide information to enable consumers to understand these issues.
Providing or obtaining an estimated insurance quote through us does not guarantee you can get the insurance. Acceptance by insurance companies is based on things like occupation, health and lifestyle. By providing you with the ability to apply for a credit card or loan we are not guaranteeing that your application will be approved. Your application for credit products is subject to the Provider's terms and conditions as well as their application and lending criteria.
