See Eco-Stylist’s Disclosure Policy, how we make money, how we choose which brands to partner with, and why we do what we do. For anything else give us a shout.
For non-fashion brands (think skin care, jewelry, sustainable banks) we may create sponsored content (blog posts or social media) if they are value aligned with Eco-Stylist. Since our criteria is designed for fashion it isn’t always the best lens for say, evaluating a sustainable bank. In these cases we look for value alignment in their mission, their impact, B Corporation status, etc.
Our blog posts may contain affiliate links. If you buy something through those links, you won’t pay a cent more, but we’ll get a small commission, which helps support our work. Thank you for supporting our mission!
Brands sometimes send us free products to review. For fashion brands (clothing and shoes) we only accept free products from Eco-Stylist certified brands. Even then, we only promote gifted products that we actually like and believe in. For non-fashion brands (think skincare or accessories) we sometimes partner with value aligned brands (think B Corporations). The reason for this is that our sustainable brand criteria is designed specifically for fashion brands, and sometimes we create related content for our readers on topics such as skincare.
At Eco-Stylist all sustainable fashion brands must pass our sustainable brand criteria. This framework looks at the brand’s impact on both people and the environment, broken out into Transparency, Fair Labor, and Sustainably Made. If a brand isn’t ethical towards its people we don’t believe it’s truly sustainable.
Absolutely not. Brands must pass our sustainable brand criteria to be listed in our directory. There are no exceptions. Our research is independent and while brands can request to be researched, we have complete control over which brands we research.
Fashion brands (clothing and shoes) must first pass our sustainable brand criteria and be listed in our directory. Of those brands that do pass, some may form affiliate partnerships with us to further promote their brands (and we’re happy to promote brands we truly believe in).
For non-fashion brands (think skin care, jewelry, sustainable banks) we may create sponsored content if they are value aligned with Eco-Stylist. Since our criteria is designed for fashion it isn’t always the best lens for say, evaluating a bank. In these cases we look for value alignment in their mission, their impact, B Corporation status, etc.
TLDR; We only partner with brands we research and truly believe in.
We spend our money 2 ways: on outreach and our people. Our mission it to create a world where all clothing shopping is ethical and sustainable. To that aim, the more awareness we can build about the harms of fast fashion, and the brands making fashion more sustainable, the greater our impact. We’re always looking for more ways to tell our story. If you want to share Eco-Stylist, we always appreciate that!
