London, United Kingdom, July 28, 2007 --(PR.com
)-- Green Trading announces the launch of its eponymous online store, greentrading.co.uk, that sells fine organic and ethical clothing for women, babies, children, and men as well as natural and organic skin care.
The store celebrates the launch with an opening sale on Loomstate designer wear and Amira fairtrade fashion.
Owner and manager, Swee Whitehouse says, “When I became a mother, I wanted to switch to a more sustainable lifestyle. When I couldn't find stylish and practical eco-fashion that would suit my busy lifestyle, I decided to set up my own online store."
According to Swee Whitehouse, there are a large number of ethical labels sold online that were short on style or were beautiful but un-wearable in everyday life.
She adds, "There is a gap in the market for fashionable everyday wear that is eco friendly. I want to make stylish and easy to wear eco fashion accessible to UK shoppers. The organic fashion market will only take off when eco fashion becomes easily available to UK shoppers."
Online ethical fashion sales are set to increase dramatically over the next few years. According to the Co-operative Bank’s Ethical Consumerism Report 2006, ethical clothing sales rose from £23 million in 2004 to £29 million in 2005, an increase of 26.1%. The e-commerce industry body, Interactive Media in Retail Group (IMRG), anticipates that online retail spend will increase from £42 billion in 2007 to £78 billion in 2010.
