Ethical stores to explore around the world

Sheryl Luz


If you've got travel plans this summer, chances are that you're curious about where to shop. Whether you're headed close to home or across the globe, we've got you covered with suggestions of innovative, ethical fashion shops:

Terra20

If you find yourself in our nation's capital, you've got to check out Terra20. It's a sustainable living department store that's unlike anything else. With two locations, the big draws are personal care, cosmetics and home goods that are kind to your health and the environment, but they also have a fashion department, eco gifts and a book section filled with sustainable required reading.

Reformation

If you're headed to New York or California, you've got to take a trip to one of Reformation's brick and mortar locations. Already well known as the sustainable cool girl brand, Reformation has stepped up their innovative side by introducing a minimalist approach to some of their newer stores. Rather than racks and racks of clothing, the shops in Los Angeles and San Francisco offer touchscreens to customers who would rather have an automated approach to shopping.

Studio Jux

Europe is leaps and bounds ahead of North America when it comes to incorporating ethics into fashion, and Amsterdam is one of its capitals of sustainable style. If you're looking for reasonably priced sustainable style that also includes green lifestyle items, look no further than Studio Jux. Benelux cool, minimalist home accessories will make the perfect souvenirs from your trip.

The Keep Boutique

London is littered with cool, ethical shops and secondhand fashion. But if you're looking for a boutique with an ethical mission at its core, you've got to go with The Keep. Named for the fact that they sell clothes that you can keep, this adorable shop stocks familiar brands such as Matt & Nat and People Tree, as well as British-made surprises such as Hiro+Wolf.

Centre Commercial

In Europe, Amsterdam and Berlin are two meccas for ethical shopping. However, sustainable boutiques are beginning to crop up elsewhere. In the fashion industry's capital, Paris, Centre Commercial carries recognizable brands such as Veja and Kowtow, as well as European gems such as Humanoid. If you're ready for a break from high street shopping on Champs-Elysees, head towards Canal Saint Martin to check out this shop.

Wall by H.P. France

Although not strictly a ethical shop by mission, Wall by H.P. France is located in the lobby of a Harajuku hotel and stocks some of the latest in sustainable style from overseas. The Tokyo boutique focuses on stocking fresh, energetic designs inspired by the Harajuku district. That those designs just happen to be ethical is a happy coincidence.
