The Problem with ‘Sustainable’ High Street Fashion | Primark, H&M, Zara

Over the past few of years, we’ve seen a rise in the number of ‘sustainable’ clothing lines offered by high street retailers, and 2017 in particular saw these get a real boost. Brands like Primark, H&M, and Zara have all made big claims about their products and their environmental credentials, but while many might argue this is a step in the right direction, there are huge problems with this.

Well, before researching for this article fairtrade was simply a logo on a banana, chocolate bar or bag of coffee beans, which gave me comfort in knowing I was helping others. Ethical and sustainable certification of products is widely misunderstood which is why I made it my mission to delve a little bit deeper. There is one thread tying most viewpoints on Fairtrade together and that’s the principle that Fairtrade provides welfare to producers, in particular, farmers, in developing countries….

Living a Fully Ethical Lifestyle

Here at Revival Collective, we try to promote ethical and conscious living as much as we can, in a realistic way – but is it really possible to live a completely ethical and sustainable lifestyle? There are so many causes and issues when it comes to ethics and sustainability, it’s hard to tackle them all at once. Some of the key issues we focus on are ethical fashion, veganism, and zero waste.

Recycling – it’s not always as simple as it sounds! Recycling seems like a fantastic, easy way to be more conscious, as it means you can get use out of something and then pop it in a box and it’ll get taken away to be reused another way. But this isn’t always the case, and there’s a lot of misinformation when it comes to recycling, plus information that just isn’t communicated well, and recycling can also vary depending on where you live and what your local council has set up! So we’ve put together an introductory guide to clear up…
