Why buy ethical?

THE WORKERS:
There are 60 million garment workers globally.
Fashion is one of the most labour-intensive industries.
Most fashion is produced on factory lines, where a worker just sews button holes, or the side pockets. It’s repetitive, and many work six-and-a-half days a week.

THE ENVIRONMENT:
It takes up to 2,700 litres of water to make a cotton t-shirt.
Conventional cotton farming uses ¼ of the world’s pesticides.

THE WASTE:
The average woman wears only 40 per cent of the clothes she owns.
