Ethical and Sustainable Sourcing

WHEN:

On March 23rd 2016 only
Paid Entry (£25.00)

WHERE:

Hello Hub, HQ Building, 2 Atherton Street, Manchester, M3 3GS

WHAT:

According to a recent article on The Business of Fashion the fashion industry is ‘one of the largest and most polluting industries in the world’. Add to this stories of factories collapsing in Bangladesh and several exposés of dubious working conditions and we have a real contentious mix. In this panel event we explore how the issues around ethics and sustainability sourcing impacts on our business practices.
