JUST empowers shoppers with data and storytelling to incite change within the fashion industry. JUST works to shift demand towards positive practices and ethical brands, ultimately championing the farmer or worker at the bottom of the supply chain. JUST’s online platform, Project JUST, is an open catalog and forum of 150+ fashion brands. Each brand is researched and categorized based on social, environmental and aesthetic factors to bring manufacturing practices to light and enable informed purchasing decisions.
