Product description

Product Description

In the wake of the Rana Plaza factory collapse in Bangladesh—the worst garment industry accident in recorded history—the phrase "fashion disaster" acquired a new and much more sinister meaning. Commentators suggested that the tragedy was completely predictable in a sector with a shocking track record of rampant environmental damage, use of toxic chemicals, and chronic human rights abuse.

Now the industry is undergoing a shift, and many of us are questioning our buying habits. The rise of socially and environmentally responsible retailers like Patagonia and The Body Shop has led to dramatic changes in the eco and ethical fashion landscape. Magnifeco is the Fast Food Nation of the fashion world—your guide to making a difference too. In this guide, author Kate Black:

  • Examines non-toxic beauty and ethical fashion
  • Recommends a multitude of ways for consumers to make better decisions
  • Introduces the brands and designers leading the way along this socially responsible path

With this complete head-to-toe guide covering everything from hair and beauty products to shoes and footwear, you can feel better about everything you put on your body and be—magnifeco!

Kate Black is the founder and editor-in-chief of, the digital source for eco-fashion and sustainable living. She has lived and worked in the major fashion centers of the world, has written over a thousand articles about designers and ethical fashion, and speaks regularly at regional and national green living events.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Guide to Help You Shop 5 February 2017
By katya m - Published on

By now it seems common knowledge that 'fast fashion' is no fun for the environment or the workers producing it. I've looked at several ethical fashion sites and while many are great, this book compiles the best of that information in an easy to transport way. (as opposed to how I formerly printed out pages from sites randomly -and ended up losing them) Kate Black writes about the importance of smart (ethical and sustainable) fashion choices in a way that makes it sound like you're out having coffee with a good friend who just happens to know a whole lot on the subject and is happy to share. It's never preachy and is super informative. In addition to listing chapters in ways you would shop -i.e. beauty, special occasions - there is an eye opening end chapter on how to help make your clothes last. We all shop. This guide helps us do it in the best possible way.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful, easy to use guide for the conscientious shopper 7 November 2015

This book is awesome! I try hard to be a conscientious shopper, but have struggled over the years to find sources for ethically manufactured clothes, and for non-toxic makeup. This book has good information on why we should buy fair-trade and organic goods, but what's so helpful is that it goes the next step to suggest multiple sources for where to find and how to buy these kinds of goods. I was a little worried that the book would be a downer, but it's been the opposite. I've spent a few hours looking up the brands mentioned in this book and have already bought some great things online from People Tree and PACT. The brands suggested in this book are at various price points, some are more expensive but there are a number that are priced similarly to what I would normally spend, and a number of the brands have full websites with plenty of different styles, which is what I've struggled to find in the past. It was also a lot of fun reading about and looking up beautiful collections sourced from artisans around the world. A big thank you to Kate Black for writing this wonderful book!

I was so excited to find out that Kate Black was writing a book! As a follower of for years, a book was a welcome addition to my growing eco-fashion mindedness and library. The book is written in a wonderful narrative style that is easy to read and work through. Literally, as promised...from head to toe, Kate gives you examples on how to make better, more consumer conscious choices and also gives you the brands and designers leading the charge. As someone who is allergic to the world, I also appreciate knowing the designers and brands that put forth socially minded fashion and products. What more can I say, other than this book is indeed magnifeco! I would recommend this to anyone looking to learn more about eco-fashion and how to source alternatives to fast fashion and beauty.
