People Tree is voted Number 1 Best Buy for Alternative Clothing

“People Tree is the stand-out Best Buy for Alternative Clothing as it’s the only brand that offers garments which are both Fairtrade and organic certified” Ethical Consumer

Ethical Consumer is a not-for-profit UK magazine and website which provides the public with tips on ethical buying, consumer reports and information on boycotts. Ethical Consumer’s mission is to "promote universal human rights, environmental sustainability, and animal welfare" by informing consumers and campaigners.

In June 2014, Ethical Consumer found People Tree to lead the scoreboard due to its ethos and commitment to animal welfare, environmental, people and political issues.


People Tree is voted into the Top 5 for the UK’s most ethical companies

In August 2014, People Tree was voted into the Top 5 most ethical companies.

Ethical Consumer asked their readers a number of questions about their ethical shopping habits over the last 25 years. The reader’s results placed People Tree in the Top 5, alongside John Lewis, Triodos bank, Riverford an organic farm and Ecotricity the energy firm.

"For over 20 years People Tree has been at the forefront of the Fair Trade and ethical fashion movement. People Tree was the first company to be certified by the Soil Association in 100% organic cotton. In 2013, People Tree became the first clothing company to receive the World Fair Trade Organisation Product Label, which guarantees our commitment to 100% Fair Trade social and environmental principles throughout our supply chain.

It is great that People Tree’s sustained commitment to our producers and the ethics of Fair Trade has been publicly recognised by Ethical Consumer readers, placing us into UK’s Top 5 most ethical companies. - Safia Minney MBE, People Tree CEO and Founder

"Ethical Consumer readers and researchers are driven to find pioneering companies that deliver innovations in social justice, the environment and animal welfare. It is clear that People Tree’s commitment to sustainable fashion with accreditation from the World Fair Trade Organisation, the Fairtrade Foundation and the Soil Association mean consumers trust how People Tree products are made. Many fashion brands talk about ethical fashion whereas People Tree walks the talk and champions change in the fashion industry placing them as Number 1 Best Buy for Alternative Clothing and in the Top 5 of the UK’s Most Ethical Companies. Bryony Moore, Ethical Consumer's lead clothing researcher
