  • Conscious Consumption with Oxfam, The Better Brand Consultant and Offset Warehouse

    with Charlie Bradley Ross

    It’s the age-old, chicken or the egg question for sustainable fashion: are conscious habits the responsibility of the consumer to practise or the brand to enable? In this panel discussion, three fashion experts working across the industry, share their insights into how we all play a part in driving more sustainable and ethical behaviours when buying clothes.

    From preventing us from falling prey to marketing tactics, to learning exactly what goes on behind-the-scenes when we donate our garments to Oxfam, to deciding which are the most ethical fabrics, in this video you’ll learn not only how to become a more conscious consumer yourself, but how to drive better solutions forward using your own fashion brand.

    This event was organised by Kindred, a community-driven members’ club based in Hammersmith, to mark World Environment Day 2019.
