Over the years some of our readers and followers have shared with us their concerns about the affordability of ethical fashion and products. The feedback we continue to receive goes something along the lines of: While they wish to ‘vote with their dollar’ and support ethical and sustainable businesses, given their tight budgets and meagre wages, they simply cannot afford to shop there.
Several years ago in a piece entitled ‘Affordability and Ethical Fashion: Why Price Still Matters‘ several years ago, we sought feedback from our community, both consumers and makers. In the article, we concluded:
“Price is a factor for many shoppers. To pretend it’s not is doing a disservice to the ethical movement. Acknowledging this issue may help us to find a way to make ethical fashion – and organic food – more affordable. Because conscious fashion and clean healthy food should be available to more people – and not just those who can most afford it.”
We’ve also polled our audience several times over the last few years to determine their thoughts about pricing. When a Facebook follower left a comment stating that most people couldn’t afford underwear costing $20 or more (after we published the post ‘11 Affordable Eco-Friendly and Ethical Underwear Brands For Women and Men (USD $29 or Less)‘) we conducted an Instagram poll to verify what other people thought. We received approximately 550 votes and the result was something we didn’t anticipate: almost 80% of respondents, or roughly 4 out of 5 people, voted that $20 for ethical underwear was ‘too expensive’.
In response to the feedback we’ve received about ethical brands and pricing and reflecting on our commitment to inclusivity (it shouldn’t just be the well-to-do and privileged that can access ethical and sustainable brands) we have decided to create this page for the Eco Warrior Princess community so that people can take advantage of sales, promotions and offers.
