Around 2 weeks ago I got invited down to The Whiskey Jar in the Northern Quater. This was to mark the start of Fashion Revolution week, and honour the six-year anniversary of the Rana Plaza disaster in Bangladesh which killed 1,134 people in the country’s worst industrial disaster.
The Bee Thrive a Manchester-based ethical and sustainable fashion brand hosted the event, where you could swap your fast fashion tees for its sustainable organic T-shirts. The event was booming with passionate individuals about the fashion industry. I was enlightened by so much information, it’s something we don’t think about consciously and I really think we should.
It was insightful to listen to the founder of the Bee Thrive Gemma Gratton and how her business idea came about as well as understanding the idea that every little change we make to our purchases and our wardrobes were helping a lot more than we think.
The event was also showcasing other brands such as Fabric for freedom which are a sustainable fashion brand who had their collection available – we honestly fell in love with some of the pieces.
The Bee Thrive also did a cat walk with pieces available in their new collection and can I just say I was obsessed with the jumpsuit. The pieces in the collection are so versatile and will live forever in your wardrobe for sure. SO do check the Bee Thrive by clicking here.
We also heard other stories on people who changed their lifestyle by not using plastic, it was crazy to hear how easy it is. For example, by not buying a water bottle from Sainsburys and just using a reusable water bottle.
