Why is sustainable fashion more expensive?


We are faced with this question pretty often. Today we would like to answer it as simple as possible.


Unfortunately, the ubiquity of clothing makes it easy not to think about how it was made and where it came from. Every piece of clothing is handmade by someone on a sewing machine. Robots can't sew clothes, and even a $5 T-shirt - was stitched together by a person!


But have you ever thought how much earn people who make T-shirts for $5 and how much they work to feed their families? And it's only the tip of the iceberg.



LOVEOCEAN works with an ethical manufacturer that complies with all worker regulations, paying employees well over the minimum wage, and offering insurance not only for each employee but also for their family members.


Also, using high-quality natural eco-friendly or recycled materials contributes to the cost of clothes due to smaller economies of scale than environmentally unfriendly materials that pollute our planet.


Although these impact the cost of production, this is done for the greater good! There is a good documentary film, "The True Cost", that asks us to consider who really pays the price for our clothing?
