Fashion and the Environment: Part 1

Every year the WEAR group (World Ethical Apparel Roundtable) gets together to discuss sustainability and best practices regarding the fashion industry. It is a group that “brings together apparel brands and retailers, sustainability experts, NGOs and academia to share best practices, build relationships and tackle the social and environmental challenges facing the industry today” (wear2014.com). 

They discuss different themes which include profitability, social issues, environmental issues, and traceability. They invite people from the fashion world, but also people from academia, marketing executives, and sustainability managers.  


Some of their partners include: greenliving, canopy planet, and fashion loved by forest. The event will take place in Canada this fall. 



Their are plenty of sustainable brands out there with fashionable clothing. Check out a few of our favorites.
