Men with style: Stop complaining about how all the green blogs focus only on women’s fashions, and start reading Commerce with a Conscience

Written by Brad Bennett, Commerce with a Conscience not only has a regularly updated blog on new and newly discovered eco-ethical men’s fashions and accessories, but also a product guide that lets visitors search by fashion item type, brand, and “ethical attribute” — whether made with upcycled materials or certified fair trade. That guide’s not yet robust — Commerce with a Conscience just launched a few months ago — but is still a great starting place for men’s eco-fashion newbies.
Not all the items Brad features will meet your own definition of ethical and eco-friendly, as Brad often showcases items because they’re made in the U.S. or crafted to last — even if the goods aren’t necessarily made with sustainable materials. Still, Brad’s reviews are generally detailed enough so you can figure out whether or not a fashion item’s green enough to be worth your green.
