Ethical and Sustainable Alternatives to SHEIN

Shein is the reigning queen of fast fashion.

The brand identifies trends, copies designs from other designers, and produces garments extremely quickly to capitalize on demand before the trend goes out of fashion.

In addition to encouraging an unsustainable, fast fashion model, Shein has come under fire for all sorts of other issues related to ethical design, labor, and customer interactions.

Shein’s factory workers have reported working for 12 hours a day and 75 hours a week, often in crowded, residential buildings with poor safety regulations

Some Shein products contain offensive symbols and images associated with hate crimes.
