Hey @katiebkung! Awesome thanks for this. Sustainable is the future!

 

Apps like Spocket have some clothing items that are ethically sourced. They can be accessed by simply using the filter "Ethically sourced", which can be found on the app's catalog.

It'd be awesome though to add more sustainable items on the app's catalog though.

This is great! @gabfromspocket how can sustainable brands get listed on this filter with Spocket for those looking to help dropshippers?

Hey @katiebkung, thanks! These textile suppliers can send a message to support@spocket.co to inquire and send a proposal - a member from the team will reach out to them to inform them of the necessary steps to be taken to be a supplier on Spocket.

Thanks for sharing this list of resources, Katie! I also have a digital product called The Fabric Souring Kit that provides a list of my top 10 sustainable fabric suppliers: https://factory45.lpages.co/fabric-sourcing-kit/ My top two are Kendor in British Columbia and Laguna Fabrics in Los Angeles : )

Common Objective is an amazing and vibrant online community to connect folks from across the sustainable fashion ecosystem. It's definitely worth joining, especially since they've opened a lot of their content due to COVID:

They have very good supplier search features, as well as educational resources on the most sustainable fiber options.
