sticks + stone may break my bones but the label will never hurt me. That’s how it goes, right? Well, whether it is or not, sticks + stone, the label hurts absolutely nothing in the creation process of their garments, from the consumers who buy their goodies to the workers who made the clothing to, of course, our incredible earth.

sticks + stone is definitely a company for the socially aware, environmentally conscious shopper. The team wholeheartedly believes that the need for sustainability in the fashion and textile industry far surpasses the desire for profit currently being made from cheap labour and ignorant processes, and this is completely obvious in their own garment production—production in which circular fashion is highly valued.

Not only does sticks + stone offer carbon neutral delivery, but the company is doing everything it can to participate in ethical and sustainable procedures—particularly in regards to minimal waste. The design stage of the sticks + stone garments is where the company’s commitment to low wastage starts, and whether it’s by cutting back on water consumption or lightening the carbon footprint, sticks + stone is constantly improving the sustainability of their processes, all the way up to the disposal phase of their garments’ life.

So, their practices are sustainable, but are they ethical? You bet your bottom dollar they are. The sticks + stone team is picky when it comes to production houses, which is why they only choose “female-led, Australian production houses where conditions are safe and clean, and where the protection of human rights is paramount.” Oh, and the best part? You can read up on their diverse, female team on the sticks + stone, the label Instagram page. How’s that for transparency.

All in all, sticks + stone gets a massive (hypothetical) thumbs up from the Ethical Made Easy team. Aside from their exquisite creations, we’d back them based on their ethical and sustainable processes alone, and also on their commitment to constantly improving upon their already impressive efforts. Go read their sustainability tips and follow their blog and, of course, have a squiz at their timeless, versatile garments.
