When you buy clothes and make up, do you consider the environment and ethics, and why? For example do you avoid places which use poor conditions and limited wages for staff, animal testing, or are not environmentally friendly? Which shops and brands are the best in terms of the environment and ethics?

I have to admit, I hadn't thought much about either until recently, I tend to buy things based on my budget. But I would like to find out more about places which may be better to buy from

Never really thought about that.

The animal testing used to bother me but then I found out about this only recently. I'm a massive Body shop fan and shop there almost exclusively for my makeup and toiletries.

I try my best to avoid make-up that has been tested on animals, and I try to avoid places like Primark that don't treat their workers well. Sometimes I just can't afford it though. Like, I can't afford to spend £6 on a 'cheap' pair of underwear when I can get them for less than £1 from Primark. When it comes to buying things like an expensive make-up treat, I'll always choose to go with a respectable brand that doesn't test on animals or treat it's workers badly

It’s my personal opinion that you must not consider environment and the ethics before you dress up. Life is very short. Do whatever you want. Life is too short to worry about what others think.
