The ENAT Ethical Fashion Digest: what we're reading this week

The ENAT Ethical Fashion Digest: What We’re Reading This Week (ed. 1) Every week we try to stay on the pulse of conscious and sustainable fashion, reading up on who is innovating and who is shining a light on challenges and solutions.   We’ve seen a surge in stories that use terms like “slow fashion”, “ethically made” and more that identify brands that care about the people they work with, their effect on the environment, and, just generally, the whole supply chain. Bottom line, there are a ton of badass people working on this stuff.   We suspect that some of you might also be curious to know about all of these things too. So, while we can’t show you...
