Certified Goodness

Another issue of Nature & Health magazine is hot off the press and with it brings yet another Eco Style column!

This issue we look at the topic of Home Grown Fashion, which has been made easy with the help of Ethical Clothing Australia. When we choose to shop locally we support local supply chains, keeping local industry alive and un-employment rates down.

Sadly the current fashion supply chain usually requires one or more parts of a garment to have had at least one trip across a countries border, so finding items that are 100% locally grown and constructed can be tricky. The labels featured in this issue show that it can be possible to have a considered supply chain with a certified focus on ethics with eco considerations along the way, and all contributions play a part of creating a more sustainable fashion supply chain.

Let’s check out the latest Eco Style Nature & Health delivery!
