PPE, but make it ethical. 

You’ve probably seen that, in light of Victoria’s mandatory face mask rules, we’ve been curating a list of Aussie brands selling (cute) masks. Given the continued demand for this new outerwear staple, Australian accreditation body Ethical Clothing Australia (ECA) has made a similar guide.

Only its list consists exclusively of ethical, ECA-accredited and Australian-made face masks, all suitable for community use. 

The guide includes 19 brands and counting. Among them are some of our beloveds, like A.BCH, Lois Hazel and The Social Studio. If local and ethical are your preferred shopping filters, simply head to the ECA’s website and click the guideWhere to Buy Face Masks’. Or, you can find the list via the ‘Buy Ethically’ tab. 

The ECA has also added a different category to its website for brands and manufacturers that provide larger, commercial face mask orders. 

The ECA notes that many local and accredited businesses are finding it hard to keep up with the increased demand – and honestly, who can blame them? – which is why they ask you to take note of a brand’s production timeframes. 

The ECA is a not-for-profit organisation that’s funded by the Victorian Government. It works with local textile, clothing and footwear manufacturers in Australia to ensure their supply chains are fully transparent and legally compliant. On their website, they provide handy shopping guides of ECA-approved and Australian-made brands, to make shopping ethically easier.
