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.
