The ANJELMS Project
We’ve been doing this thing for a while; the sifting through of companies in order to find the big fat (ethically and sustainably minded) gems. Well, when we were sifting recently, we came across The ANJELMS Project, and we may have hit the motherload. Social responsibility, sustainable practices, uniqueness, community, and quality are the pillars by which this incredible company is supported, and it’s just an added bonus that their garments are as absolutely beautiful as the company’s mindset.find out more
Baiia stands for “one who has the capacity to change the world for the better”, and we can’t help but agree with how well this fits with the company’s ethos. This is a label that encompasses the idea of creating versatile swimwear for women by using recycled plastic that would otherwise be polluting our precious land and ocean, and clogging up our eco systems.find out more

How to let go of the fast fashion brands you love.
Guys, we need to talk. We’re sorry if that line triggers you, but we just really need to get something off our chest. We all need someone there to tell us when enough is enough—which someone should have done with Angelina and Billy Bob before they wore vials of each other’s blood around their necks, in our opinion—and this is us doing it for you. Enough with the fast fashion brands; they don’t deserve you!READ MORE
3 ways to participate in ethical fashion when you can hardly pay rent.
Let’s not beat around the bush; ethical fashion is more expensive. The cost of ethical fashion represents the true cost of a garment, where no one is exploited in the process of making it. But no matter how much you know about the truth behind the fashion industry, or how passionate you are about workers rights and sustainability, when your weekly routine is adding up every single penny to see what you have left for food after rent is paid, it’s hard to justify paying $70 for a tank top instead of $5. In fact, it’s often impossible.READ MORE
What is Ethical Fashion?
Ethical fashion. If you say these two words to someone when you first meet, you’re likely to be given back a blank stare and raised eyebrows. Huh? The average person will think of slaves, child labour, and sweat shop factories they’ve seen glimpses of on the news. These are valid points in the discussion of ethical fashion, but they’re only the tip of the iceberg.READ MORE
Why fashion is a feminist issue.
Fashion can be attributed to feminism in a multitude of ways. Clothing is a form of expression, a way in which women choose to communicate with the world. It is often printed with feminist quotes and marketed as a product to empower women. It’s also a female dominated industry, with the majority of garment workers, globally, being women.READ MORE

Peeling back the (clothing) layers with Azura Bay founder, Ashley McIntosh.
As women (and men!), we’ve all, at some time or another, had a toxic relationship with our body and, in turn, our clothes. Adding to this, however, is the guilt of not fully knowing where those clothes were made, who made them, or how they were made. Ashley felt this right down to her core, which is why she decided to craft a company with these issues at the forefront.READ MORE

We talk dreams, to-do lists, and creative processes with The ANJELMS Project founder, Gaelle Beech.
Gaelle seemed to have the fashion career crafted from dreams: she worked in various different roles in the industry and had won a national competition from her previous place of work, Ralph Lauren. Despite this, she could not shake a meeting she’d had with two Balinese women years earlier, so after a very vivid and persuasive dream, Gaelle sketched a few garments, and poof: The ANJELMS Project was born.READ MORE
Is ethical fashion really as expensive as we think?
The average woman wears only 33% of her wardrobe. Dwell on this for a second or two. It’s crazy right? Unfortunately, we’ve been trained to think of fashion like a disposable skin that we can oh so easily strip off, and replace when we are bored. Heck, if a shirt is the price of a coffee, why wouldn’t you buy it in 7 different colours, wear only two of them, and then go back to the mall the very next week looking for something different?READ MORE
Behind the Brand
Meet Alexandra Thursfield, the founder of The (absolutely delectable) Daily Bar.
When Alexandra saw a gap in the market for an extremely healthy, extremely delicious snack that could be eaten daily, she decided to fill it with The Daily Bar. With this, she was also very aware that most snack products available on the market are packaged in plastic, and did not want to add to this already out-of-control problem with the common “a minute on the lips, a lifetime (plus 900+ years) in landfill) mentality.READ MORE
Giving people jobs is not an excuse to buy fast fashion.
Talking about ethical fashion is hard. When you begin discussing the topic with someone who hasn’t heard of issues in the fashion industry, there’s a point in the conversation when they realise; the problem is them. They are the consumer, they are wearing clothes made by individuals exploited in third world countries, and they are holding the H&M shopping bags.READ MORE
What is a clothing supply chain, and why is it that so many fast fashion companies can’t trace where their products are made?
If you’re relatively new to the ethical fashion space (or not at all new), you’ll have noticed this term popping up a lot. At Ethical Made Easy, we really harp on about it. If you google ‘supply chain’, you’ll get a bunch of information about economics.READ MORE
