How to find out where your favorite Brand is made?

Some stores like H&M and Forever 21 do publicize where their products are manufactured, but many other brands don’t. If you want to find out where your clothes were produced, try looking for a label that indicates what country a garment was made in. The Fair Labor Association has developed an app called Know Your Labels that can help consumers identify whether or not a product is made in a sweatshop-free environment. The app allows users to scan barcodes on products and receive information about whether or not it was produced ethically or sustainably.

Globally some of the popular Clothing brands are Adidas, Nike, ZARA, Ralph Lauren, Gucci, Calvin Klein, Louis Vuitton, Tommy Hilfiger, American Eagle and Wrangler.
