Description

Do you know who made your clothes?

Sounds like an easy question but it’s one that individuals and businesses are grappling with in the current globalised fashion industry. Ethical Clothing Australia works to shine a light on the Australian garment manufacturing sector (yes there is still one!), and ensure that workers are safe and receiving their due wages and entitlements.

In this session, we’ll explore more about the hands that make our clothes, and how to use your voice and wallet to make a difference.
