The True Cost of Fashion – Who’s Paying for It?

The Comhlámh Trade Justice group
Thursday 22nd April 2021 from 3pm – 4.30pm

The global fashion industry is polluting our environment, exploiting workers while making millions for big brands.  Is there a better way to make our clothes?

The Comhlámh Trade Justice group are excited to be hosting this information and sharing event. There will be time also for Q&A and discussion in small groups. 

The event will take place on Thursday 22nd April 2021 on Zoom from 3 pm to 4.30 pm GMT +1. 

Come and join our panel of sustainable fashion experts to learn about their work and take the opportunity to discuss and debate these issues. Our sustainable fashion advocates are thriving in this space and will be sharing their insights on the following; 

  • Understanding their “Why” for the work they are doing
  • The journey they have been on 
  • The challenges they have faced 
  • Exploring the impact they are making and the opportunities they see for change
  • What lessons or advice they have for others interested in Fashion Justice
