Why I started this blog...
It got me thinking when my other half said that he's never known anyone as passionate about where things come from as me. I will literally spend hours researching brands, farmers, markup and everything in between.
A few colleagues had also started to ask me about the ethics of certain brands too (so I know it must be bad!). So when I had a spare few minutes sat at my desk, I decided to develop the idea of writing a blog and that evening The Ethical Edit was born!
Naturally, I'm interested in all aspects of an ethical lifestyle but it has to fit in with what I need and when I need it. I'm certainly not an "eco-warrior" but I do like to know that the money I spend isn't lining a large corporation that exploits its suppliers. I want to know everyone in the chain gets paid fairly.
So the plan for the blog is to keep it open-minded, and really assess every option available. I want to know if buying "fast-fashion" is as bad as people make out and if organic food is actually better for me - and every other question I have!
I hope you find this blog interesting, and I'll really value everyone's input, feedback and opinions along the way :)
