In this video you'll learn:

  • About Birdsong, their sustainability criteria and social ethos of their business.
  • How the brand is working to change consumer behaviour.
  • Why they have a "no photoshop" policy.
  • How they found the makers they work with and the challenges they faced.
  • How Birdsong approached funding and tips for crowdfunding.
  • Their best routes to market.
