I really love advocating Fair Trade and ethical companies.  As a resources adviser for Justice Network, I have already curated a large list of trusted companies that do not involve slave labor and source their materials carefully.

Prana is dedicated to creating sustainability not only in their practices, but also in their quality of materials and impact on the environment.  They use recycled, organic, Fair Trade certified, Bluesign certified, hemp, Fluorine Free, and PFOA Free materials!  That’s amazing!!

They sent me this calypsa top as well as a dress (will be reviewing that for Justice Network on Monday).  Whether you do yoga, hike, or are relaxing, Prana’s clothing is all around perfect for everything.  I love how their products are long lasting too.  This top and the dress that I was sent have built in bras.  It is really comfortable to wear.  I am glad that the calypsa top could be baggier on some people, but fits nicely with my hips that are 12 inches larger than my waist.  I am in need of replacing my only pair of jeans that I wear constantly and am thinking of buying my next pair from them (I buy one pair per year and the pair I bought last year have holes in them.  I am pretty sure Prana’s jeans will last longer).

  1. I didn’t know where to ask you this question, so I’m asking here. I find your list of fair trade companies on justice-network.org SO helpful. I’m on a quest for better makeup (I’ve been to your list!) and have seen a few positive things online about the brand W3ll People. They are not on your list and I didn’t know if you know about them and their ethical standards or if you can share tips for finding out whether what they say on their site is fancy speak for sidestepping the issue or if they are legit. Thanks a bunch!

    • I will look up W3ll People! Thank you so so much. It is fine that you commented here about the list. I am glad it has helped you out!
      I don’t see anything on their site about their ethical practices and sourcing. My thoughts are that you email them and ask them. Sometimes I get responses that are pretty fully detailed about where they get their products and who originally mines things like mica that is in make-up and usually is slave-mined. If you don’t get a response, it most likely means they use slave labor. Sometimes I get a response saying they are unsure, which is nice that they are honest about that at least. The more consumers ask questions, the more they make efforts to change their practices.
