The 2018 Global Slavery Index findings are astonishing. In the UK alone garments are sadly the 1st highest product at risk of being made in modern slavery (with electronics in the second place).
Are you curious for every step of your clothes creation process?
Do you ask questions about where was it made?
Who made it? How was it made?
What difference can it make if you change what you buy?
Your everyday choices can be the seeds of a smarter, more beautiful way of life.
There is no doubt that the current fashion business activity is creating negative impact on the environment.
The relatively low prices and constant supply of new designs in the shops have made us lost our connection with where our garments come from and their true value. As a result we are disconnected from the true cost of our clothes which is the key to caring for our future.
What is Ethical Fashion?
Ethical Fashion is an umbrella term to describe sustainable fashion design, production, retail, and purchasing.
With increasing concern about global warming, fair trade, working conditions, child labour and animal welfare there has never been a better time to learn more about the creation of our clothing.
