Why I Do Ethical Sales Roundups: I don't want to promote mindless over-consumption, but I recognize that ethical clothing can be cost prohibitive, especially when you're just starting to consider your consumer choices, so I want to make sure that everyone has an opportunity to purchase ethical fashion at a price point they're comfortable with. I trust you to use your best judgment.

new in: Sseko Designs' spring collection 2016

sseko designs spring 2016

I always look forward to seeing how Sseko Designs' creatively reinterprets its original versatile ribbon sandal each season. They did not disappoint.

The Spring '16 collection launched today and I'm digging the new stitched leather soles on their ribbon sandals, the accent updates, and the brand new designs in their collection, like these cool, gold slip on sandals.

My favorites, pictured above, are:

It's so inspiring to watch ethical companies I love thrive and improve over time. Sseko Designs deserves their success. They've worked hard to ensure that their business improves not just the lives of the young women they employ, but the local economy, as well. Their employees go on to get degrees, start their own businesses, and serve as mentors for new hires. 

ethical sale alert: proclaiming my undying love for MadeFAIR

MadeFAIR ethical shop sale

My name is Leah and I'm a MadeFAIR addict. From the time I first heard of Tavie Meier's ethical shop, I haven't been able to get enough. Tavie is a welcome addition to the ethical consumer community, with her wealth of insight and no-nonsense approach to changing the industry for the better. I've featured her essays several times and even reviewed one of MadeFAIR's products, the Sseko Designs' Gold Loafers, when the shop first opened.

MadeFAIR is offering its first big clearance sale, with pages and pages of beautifully crafted, well curated ethical items at the lowest prices on the market.

Here are my picks:

3. Blue Mist Nomad Bootie, now $90.99

Happy World Fair Trade Day! Go forth and buy fair trade with these deals:

sweater sale at fair indigo


Fair Indigo is an ethical retailer that offers a wide variety of everyday clothing items and accessories. They're putting on their Sweater Sale this week! Prices have already been reduced, but you can get an additional 30% off with code, SWEATERS. The coupon will remain active until this Sunday, January 18.

It's a snow day for me today, so sweaters are quite an appropriate topic.

sale alert: Sseko Designs

fair trade shoes sale at sseko designs, a company that empowers women,

Sseko Designs is offering 20% off sitewide with code, bemerry. Their stuff is pricey because it's ethically produced and high quality, so this weekend is a good opportunity to buy yourself some ribbon sandals or a tote bag. I wore my ribbon sandals almost every day last summer!
