Have you ever heard of ECA ( Australia)? ECA are against sweat shops and slave labour. The are an Australian company providing ethical clothing to consumers.

Workers making garments from home are said to suffer from "unrealistic deadlines, long working hours, irregular flows of work, and significant occupational health and safety issues. Other issues also reported are disruption to family life, lack of awareness of legal rights and entitlements, and powerlessness to speak out about problems in fear of losing work altogether."

ECA works to protect the workers rights.

They describe cheap fashion as exploitation and they aim to maintain ethical standards.
