The word is out about the icky practices of the Fashion industry at large. At Jackie V, we’ve become acutely aware of these unethical operations and we’re committed to making shopping with a conscience more easily accessible.
Feel confident and kind, knowing that the clothes you love were made with sustainability in mind. Join us in our passion for the welfare of people, animals, and the planet!
Ethical fashion means that the makers are treated fairly and respectfully.
Sustainability starts with companies who care about environment over profit.
Vegan friendly clothing and accessories don’t exploit or harm animals.
Transparency is extremely important to us. We know the makers of our pieces are paid adequately and enjoy their work environment and quality of life.
From plant based dyes and recycled materials to nearby supply chains with lower emissions, each Jackie V brand is doing their part to be eco-conscious.
There will never be wool in a sweater, silk in a blouse or skirt, or leather in your shoes or handbags. Instead, you will find high quality alternatives.
Conscious Shopping Tips
The Good News
More and more people are caring where their dollars go, but learning how to be a conscious consumer takes time. At Jackie V, we’ve done the research for you. Don’t feel lost or discouraged trying to avoid those bad brands and corporations. Feel empowered knowing where you spend your dollar has an impact on others and the planet!
Consider The Price.
Many times when something is at an extremely low price it can mean that it was made cheaply, and with unfair labor. The reason why ethical and sustainable brands can sometimes be costly is because the brand pays more for quality materials, ethical labor, and green manufacturing.
Tailor Before Trash.
When something you love loses a button or gets a tear, don’t forget that seamstresses are located all around us! Don’t just give or throw away something because of a tiny flaw. It’s probably a $5-$10 fix and adds to the story of the piece!
Think Long Term.
Ask yourself if you truly love the item and plan to have it for years to come. The average garment is only worn up to 4 times before being donated or thrown away. Investing in pieces we really love provides relief from more waste being created.
Wash your clothes like your hair, only when it needs it! The habit of tossing pieces from your body to the hamper can be wasteful and take a toll on your wallet and the planet. Try wearing an item 2-3 times without getting it dirty; skip washing in between!
