What factors do you consider when making online purchases for sustainable/ethical products? I'm a highschool student writing a research paper on online ethical/sustainable shopping, and on a specific brand.

Where am I?

For apparel and home goods, I always look for Fair Trade certification first. Not all ethical brands are certified though, so next is to look at the label: where are products made, does it say "ethically" or "sustainably" made, does it have a photo or name of the maker? Generally, I simply look for transparency and how much information about their supply chain and operations the brand is sharing.
