The collapse of Rana Plaza, a clothing factory in Bangladesh, has been a horrifying wake-up call about the consequences of “fast fashion.” Here at The Frisky, we’re dedicated to bringing you the styles you love at prices you can afford, but we’re also working hard to make sure to recommend companies we believe in and advocate for better working conditions for the people (mostly women) who make the clothes we buy. When it comes to ethical shopping, it can be hard to know where to start, so we’re going to be spotlighting some specific brands and general shopping tips in a new feature called Compassionate Fashion.
