NEWS: The Future of Fairtrade Fashion

Fantastic news in The Telegraph on the 26th (Click here for the article.)

Fair Trade are apparently working on a fashion 'mark' to allow clothes producers from Top Shop to Versace the chance to sell Fairtrade fashion.

Further annoucements are due we reckon at any minute from the Fairtrade Foundation as this is meant to be up and running in the summer.

Have emailed them to ask for more info and will report back if and when we hear back from them.

In the meantime you can buy organic and fairtrade clothing from a variety of places including Vivavi and Peopletree

That´s good news indeed. And it is about time that something changes in the textile industry and an alternative appears on the market.

But what is equally important is education, public education!

For a revolution in the people´s mind!! WAKE UP!
