Good On You x Farfetch – We Rate Their Conscious Edit

We’re always looking for ways to grow the amazing Good On You community and spread the word about ethical and sustainable fashion. One of the key ways we can change the industry from the inside is to work with retailers to help them stock the brands we think are doing good by people, planet, and animals.

We recently teamed up with global luxury online retailer Farfetch to rate and curate their newly launched Conscious Edit collection. Farfetch are setting the standards for big retailers with their commitment to ethical fashion and have used Good On You’s ratings to guide them. Here is a list of our favourite Farfetch brands making waves across all three areas that we are passionate about protecting.
