November is really the beginning of the festive season.   It’s also the time of year we’re encouraged to buy, buy, buy with Black Friday sales now happening in many countries. But as ethical fashionistas we know that mindless consumerism will not bring joy to the world…

So instead of hitting the department stores, take a look at these five ethical brands that are new to the Good On You app this month, that go the extra mile to reduce waste and give back, as well as making great clothes.
