Ethical manufacturing means fair wages and high-quality materials; therefore, sustainable fashion brands offer fairly high price ranges. And yes, the idea is to consume better and less. Because, although we want to change the way we consume, many of us pay close attention to our shopping expenses, VEPSI offers you a selection of great sustainable and stylish items for under 100€. It’s good for your wallet and the planet! #ACTLIKEAHERO
