I love this app, it's so handy and informative, and it is really well laid out. I would highly recommend this app to everyone, as just a quick search on here can easily be the difference between buying a product that has been made unethically, and buying something sustainable, so it's making the ethical change even easier. One thing I think would be good to have is the ability to organize your favourite into categories, because I favourite brands with really good ratings that I want to buy from and brand that I normally buy and am likely to want to see the rating for, so I don't have to search it up every time. And I want to keep these two things separate
While I wholeheartedly support the premise of this app, there have been some issues with the ratings. Cotton On as of 2017, was given a A- rating making higher than the CR group which had a B+ in the Australian Fashion Report. the app states that Cotton On is 'not good enough' and that Country road is 'good' despite having a higher rating in the report. I would strongly appreciate it if one of the developers of this app could send me a reply with an explanation for this so I and other consumers can gain some clarity on this matter to better make judgements when shopping.
I rate this app "it's a good start". I think that we need to be harder on unsustainable and child exploiting clothing manufacturers. A rating of "it's a start " may give consumers the impression that companies have done enough to deserve their custom. Let's rate them "not good enough" and send a clear message to the consumer that this corporation is still unethical/ unsustainable in many of it's practises.
This app is a great start, but there are a few things that would make it better. 1. Rating organic cotton as 'great' for the environment is highly questionable given it still uses a lot of resources in the process 2. Sustainability needs to be considered in terms of longevity of the items as well - it's no good forking out for a great pair of sustainable boots (or dress or whatever) if they'll need to be replaced in 3-6 months. This should be a separate category Those are the main two.
The Idea is great, but the database is still very small. From 6 tested Companys it only knew two, from the three international selling only one. Furthermore and even more annoying, you need an account to use the app. There is no reason at all to mandatory have an account and give them your data just to search the database. I can not recommend this app.
YES THE APP THAT I'VE BEEN WAITING FOR IS AVAILABLE IN PLAY STORE. It seriously helps me in identifying which brand is greenwashing and 'admitting' that they are practicing fair trade principles. Really extensive research conducted for each of the brand, which I really appreciate, and the app is also posting articles relating to the ethical fashion industry! What else can I ask for? Really amazing app. Good job and I hope that with this app, many people would be more aware about the slow-fashion movement.
