I am so impressed by Emma Watson’s dedication to sustainable fashion. The dress she wore to the Met Ball on Monday, May 2, 2016 was made from recycled plastic bottles. Please watch this CNN International video with Style host Derek Blasberg to learn more.

I came across this article in The Guardian yesterday and had to share it with you. So exciting to read there are factories working to protect their workers while running a successful textile factory. Please follow this link directly to Sam Jones’ article in The Guardian.
Fairwear until next time…..
South-east Asia’s garment industry has a bad name but decent wages, childcare and labour rights are high priorities for one company breaking the mould.

It has been far too long since my last post. I hope there are still some readers out there who are interested in fair trade in the textile and fashion industries. I just watched “The True Cost”, a powerful documentary on the staggering cost fast fashion is having on workers in the garment district in developing countries, primarily young women. A secondary problem with our rabid consumption of fast fashion is the impact on our landfills. This movie also shows the parallels between greed versus the well-being of our environment.
This movie is a must-see for everyone!!! Please watch this trailer and then considering paying $10 to watch the entire movie.
