You know we love a good fashion Instagram account point blank, but we’re especially thrilled whenever we stumble across one with a focus on sustainable, ethical fashion.

A fortnight ago we launched the Good On You app, and as we continue busily researching brands to add to our ratings, nothing inspires us to keep doing what we do like others on the same mission. Read on for a round-up of some of our favourite ethical fashion Instagram accounts.

1. Shift Style
