23rd February – 8th March 2015
At a weekend conference last year the Do-it-yourself Saturday night entertainment involved bringing your own Fair Trade/upcycled or recycled item of clothing to model in an ethical fashion show. This was a great opportunity to show off my Fair Trade ethical organic dress from ‘People Tree’. Others brought charity shop stunners to the catwalk, and one lady had made a beautiful skirt entirely from her husband’s ties.
Fair Trade is not just coffee and chocolate! Cotton labelled as Fair Trade ensures that farmers get a fair price and growing cotton organically helps protect the environment. So in Fair Trade fortnight search online to see what you can find.
People Tree is a recognised fashion industry pioneer in Fair Trade and environmentally sustainable fashion. They were voted as the No 1 Best Buy for alternative clothing and were voted into the Top 5 UK’s most ethical companies in 2014. Take a look at their beautiful dresses!
