Moselle Clothing goes Fairtrade

.

Moselle Clothing (QLD) has announced that it has formally committed to using fair trade cotton in all future t-shirt ranges – and it’s music to our ethical little ears!

Moselle was founded as a social business to provide a better life and a genuine alternative for women rescued from sex trafficking in Asia  – and you can now have confidence that not only their seamstresses but everyone in their supply chain has been treated ethically, and is getting a better deal.

Yep, we love Fairtrade – who couldn’t or wouldn’t?

Congratulations to Moselle for taking the big leap, and inspiring others to do the same. Three big cheers to you!

Check out the Fairtrade Australia website to find out how you can support workers around the world, or how to bring your label up to fair trade standards.

Happy Fairtrade Fortnight to you all!

The Ethical Clothing Pledge

badge by heidi & seek (thinker maker)

I’ve just been over to the gorgeous Isis Made blog, and have taken her ethical clothing pledge…

Of course we are already acutely conscious of what we buy around here. But now we are clicking our heels and sending you all our best scout salute!

Is it difficult with a 10 year old daughter…? Yup.

…a little shop around Bluecaravan should do the trick!

I pledge to only wear clothing that is one or more of the following:
1. Pre-loved
2. Handmade (preferably by me) *clothing by me? OK maybe not this bit!
3. Reconstructed
4. Made with ethical / environmentally friendly materials
5. Made by a company with strong ethical policy & workers’ rights

* Companies with environmentally friendly practices (such as cutting down on waste/energy/water) get brownie points
* If I get one little inkling of sweatshop labour, I’m outta there!
* Above all though, I think the most important thing is reducing the amount of things we use in the first place. Not purchasing ANOTHER piece of clothing just for the sake of it is the biggest statement we can make.
