Adjusting to a more eco-friendly lifestyle has been going well so far. My beauty and cleaning routines are more environmental. My family and I are also trying to reuse products that would have otherwise gone in the bin or recycling (e.g. milk bottles as plant pots as seen on my Instagram). Something I do struggle with still is fashion. Ideally I want to shop from brands that are sustainable and ethical, but within my budget. The recommended brands I found are quite expensive. While some chain shops have affordable sustainable clothing lines, many aren’t ethical and they still have fast-fashion products. As I don’t have clothes shops near me which fit my criteria, I turned to the internet. The issue is it’s hard to find sustainable fashion online when you don’t know many brands. Especially, affordable ones. I wished that there was a site with lots of sustainable fashion brands altogether, so you can choose ones which fit your price and style. Enter Project Cece.

What is Project Cece?
Project Cece is essentially an online search engine for sustainable and ethical fashion. The site is already setup in the Netherlands and Germany, but Monday 27th May 2019 is the official launch of the UK version.
It’s a great place to find sustainable fashion online and features companies such as People Tree, Beaumont Organic and Bibico.
You can filter your search based on clothing or accessory item, colour, brand, as well as the sustainability/ethical criteria which is important to you.
There’s also a sale section if you fancy getting yourself a bargain.
Something that has come to light, especially recently with Fashion Revolution Week and #WhoMadeMyClothes, is brand honesty. Large fast-fashion chain stores provide little detail about the wellbeing of the workers and the sustainability of their clothing. I’ve also come to realise that there is a lot of greenwashing and I’ve been gullable at times.
Project Cece provides in-depth details about the brands though including their certification and what different certificates mean, so you know exactly what you’re buying and who you’re buying from.
