An ethical fashion business is based on social justice, as well as another fundamental element of sustainable development: environmental protection. This fundamental right should be interpreted as two perspectives. The first is the right of the workers not being deprived of a quality of life at their workplace, which means not being deprived of environmental elements, such as natural light or the quality of air. The second is the obligation to protect the environment as a duty to all people. The articles within this theme are related to the application of this principle to fashion industry.
