FaeriesDance support ethical clothing on 'Fair Trade Day'

May '13
While Earth Day is finally getting a lot of notice, World Fair Trade Day remains a much lesser known event in the USA. FaeriesDance.com is doing their part to call attention to the importance of fair trade clothing as well as the many fun and exciting events happening to support fair trade.

Their ongoing blog series Fair Trade Fashion Round-Up describes which certifications to look for when choosing fair trade clothing and specifically highlights a selection of manufacturers whose entire philosophy revolves around using eco-fashion to improve the lives of garment producers.

While the mainstream fashion industry continues its “race to the bottom” whereby they look for cheaper and cheaper manufacturing regardless of human dignity and working conditions, a few pioneer companies are improving the standard of living in impoverished areas.

Companies like Indigenous Designs in the USA and Pants to Poverty in the UK are actively involved in lifting communities out of poverty, helping children get out of factories and into education and preserving artisanal skills.

“The fashion industry has an enormous impact on the lives of people living in underprivileged areas. We as consumers have the ability to determine if that impact will be positive or negative.” explains Adrienne Catone, FaeriesDance.com’s founder and CEO.

Adrienne believes that it’s worth buying fewer items that are higher quality that can elevate rather than oppress the people involved in making the garments. By choosing fair trade clothing, every person can have a hand in improving our world. Follow FaeriesDance.com’s blog, The Eco-Fashion Philosopher, to read the whole series and find out more about fair trade clothing.
