In honor of fashion revolution week (23-29th April 2018), I’m re-reading “Slow Fashion: Aesthetics Meets Ethics,” by Safia Minney, the founder of the Fair Trade UK fashion label People Tree. This beautiful, educational and inspiring book is a must-read for anyone who wants to learn about the challenges and possibilities of a sustainable supply chain in the fashion industry.
A problem with most gift guides: They aren’t ethically focused. It’s rare to find a gift guide that lists where products originate or who made them.
At Journey to Good, we’re thinking about ways to shop ethically this holiday season.
Last week as I walked into a client meeting with a co-worker, we were greeted with a, “Hi girls.”
Inwardly, I cringed. I’m well over the age of 12 (I point that out because many people consider either 12 or 18 the oldest age of a girl).
Not everyone seems to know (or care) that it’s not ok to use the word “girl” to describe an adult in a professional setting.
It’s not news that there’s an awareness problem surrounding this subject and it applies to people of different generations, backgrounds and genders. People have been talking about this for years, and not just Mayim Bialik, but she’s talking about it too.
