Good morning! In case you haven't heard the news yet, the Ethisphere Institute has named their most ethical companies for 2014, and one of our favorite fashion stores is their #1: H&M! There were only 3 retailers on the list this year, and H&M made it! The huge fashion retailer takes it's spot on the top of the list due to it's categories of excellence:
1.) Ethics & Compliance
3.) Leadership & Innovation
4.) Corporate Citizenship & Responsibility
5.) Culture of ethics
While I love H&M and have heard nothing about good things as far as working for them, it's interesting to me that the requirements for being #1 don't include production/manufacturing standards. With that being said, H&M is making leaps and bounds by creating a "Conscious Collection" for their stores that includes recycled fabrics coupled with organic/sustainable textiles.
These aren't your grandmother's Woodstock threads; these are a cool conscious collective of modern and chic, while helping save the planet too.
How do you feel about H&M being #1 for ethics? Do you agree with the Ethisphere Institute's decision?
