knowledge is power, and the best way to effect change is to be an informed citizen + consumer. we can drive change by calling for transparency before we choose to make a purchase. ask simple questions to retailers: a) who made my clothes? b) where were the textiles or ingredients sourced? c) was this product made under fair trade standards? slow fashion + clean beauty companies can offer answers to all of your questions. the books and films listed provide resources for those on a journey towards healthier, greener and more compassionate living. our daily purchases impact millions of workers in the agricultural, textile and garment production industries: the people who make the everyday products we use and wear. be curious + ask questions.
