More places to buy and see eco fashion
Just days after announcing the appointment of former Topshop guru Jane Shepherdson, People Tree is already leaping into more shops. As well as having a concession in Whole Foods Market, due to open its doors tomorrow, the organic Fairtrade label is branching out into more UK outlets, with a range appearing soon at not-for-profit store Sust in Milton Keynes.
Buying organic clothing is a great way to reduce the spread of potentially harmful chemicals worldwide: 2.5% of the worlds cultivated land is used to grow cotton and some of the most toxic pesticides are used in growing cotton. This kind of farming seriously affects the health of cotton farmers and their families, with toxic chemicals in the air they breathe and the soil where they grow their food
If you're still not convinced that it's actually wearable (and I've met enough people of this opinion to have to say it!) why not go and see some organic Fairtrade fashion including the new People Tree range in all its glory at Sust's fashion show on Thursday 14th June. Fairtrade wine and snacks will be served from 7pm, and tickets are a tenner.
