Origins of the Ethical Rebel
the Ethical Rebel was birthed from the pain I felt at all the damage being done to people in the fashion industry and to our planet.
Until a few years ago I had no idea that there were so many atrocities and abuses happening in the fashion industry. I was blissfully ignorant of the fact that nearly all the clothes on the High Street were created by slaves in unsafe factory conditions. I was unaware that most rivers and streams in the world are continually polluted by dyes and that most drinking water is now unfit for human consumption. I just didn't know that chemicals are killing farmers, dye workers and tanners.
And once you know all this stuff, you can't unknow it again.
the Ethical Rebel is my contribution to establishing an ethical fashion industry. An exciting and creative industry both for the people who work in it and for those who wear our clothes. An industry that benefits people and the planet instead of harming them.
