The ETHICAL FASHION FORUM (EFF) is a not for profit network focusing upon social and environmental sustainability in the fashion industry. EFF mission is to SUPPORT and PROMOTE sustainable practices, facilitate COLLABORATION, raise AWARENESS and provide the TOOLS AND RESOURCES needed to reduce poverty, reduce environmental damage and raise standards in the fashion industry.
Fashion Revolution is a global movement in 90 countries that runs all year round. It has created a worldwide platform which we can all use to ask questions, raise standards and set an industry-wide example of what better looks like. „We celebrate fashion as a positive influence while also scrutinising industry practices and raising awareness of the fashion industry’s most pressing issues. We aim to show that change is possible and encourage those who are on a journey to create a more ethical and sustainable future for fashion.”
TCBL is a major EU funded project that aims to transform the Textile & Clothing (T&C) industry and bring production capacity back to Europe by applying new business approaches that support local design and production, reducing the T&C sector’s impact on the environment. TCBL introduces and supports new approaches to product design, production and sales, creating “laboratories” for design and manufacturing, including partnership activities focused on specific localities.
