11 Ethical UK Fashion Brands And Bloggers You Should Follow On Instagram

31 October 2018 - by Rachel Piper

Instagram has become the go-to source for connecting fashion enthusiasts with inspiring content.

 

It is now easier than ever for us to find fashion retailers who share the same ethical values. There are some truly inspiring eco-friendly fashion accounts and bloggers who are highlighting the many benefits of sustainable fashion, sharing valuable information on how to become a more conscious consumer.

Here at Grace & Green, we believe in advocating responsibly manufactured apparel and those who share the same values – that’s why every Tuesday we spotlight one of our favourite ethical fashion inspirations, spreading our love for ethical fashion.

Beaumont Organic (pictured) is an international ethical ladieswear brand that combines signature styling with contemporary classics. While each garment has the style and sophistication that the modern day woman craves, you can rely on the Beaumont Organic team to choose only the most eco-friendly materials like organic cotton, bamboo and fairtrade fabrics to create their renowned style. Beaumont Organic offers contemporary fashion, brought to you in a responsible way.

On her blog, Ruth champions all things local, independent and innovative – including Grace & Green’s plastic-free period products.

In her review, she writes: “I always say that sustainability shouldn’t compromise on style, and I love that Grace & Green agrees that they should never be mutually exclusive. The products themselves are also super subtle looking and really lightweight to wear, and deliver exactly the results you’d expect with zero leakage or fibres. Good design, integrity and quality mean these are my new go-to period products.”
