Fair Fashion Friday : The sustainable winter jacket edit

Its Fair Fashion Friday!

Every Friday we post some sustainable style inspo. Whether you are looking for fashion that is fair trade, ethical or vegan friendly, we’ve got you covered.

We’ve recently had snow here in the UK which has prompted us to update our wardrobe with something practical! Often the down that fills puffer jackets comes from birds that are plucked whilst alive, and lots of the big brand names also use real fur trims. Here at The Eco Edit we like to look at brands that promote cruelty free and sustainable production, so here is a round up of some vegan friendly puffers and ethical, insulated, winter coats. Sound good? Read on…

    I am pretty sure that even recycled down is Not vegan.
    Being vegan is not wearing eating or anything which comes from animals birds reptiles insects fish or sea creatures

      Hi Sharyn, thanks for your comment and you are entirely correct, it is not vegan. I have included it, as I know some of my readers are not vegan, and as someone who greatly cares about animal welfare, I would prefer it if someone purchased recycled down, than new, which they can only do if they are informed of it. When I came across it, I felt it would be right to present that ‘more ethical’ option. Thanks so much for taking the time to read and comment. Best wishes, Roxy.
