What is Ethical Fashion Forum?

The mission of the Ethical Fashion Forum is to SUPPORT and PROMOTE sustainable practices, facilitate COLLABORATION, raise AWARENESS and provide the TOOLS AND RESOURCES needed to reduce poverty, reduce environmental damage and raise standards in the fashion industry [1].

Ethical Fashion Forum’s Source Directory provides a global list of manufacturers who focus on sustainable and ethical practices. The aim is to make it easy for fashion professionals and businesses to work more sustainable and facilitate research on the industries best practices. The publication is by far at the forefront of the eco and ethical movement!

What vendors are approved by EFF?

Herbal Fab is a recommended source. Aura is mentioned on their 2012 Trend Report for sustainable supply and production.

The Standard

The criteria is based on internal reviews of specific brands and their ability to meet certain ethical or sustainable practices. They do not have any specific standards but it seems that all vendors are personally reviewed by staff before making a decision. They do not take money in exchange for a directory posting. GOTS, Sedex and Fair Trade are just a few partners of the blog.
