SPRINGFIELD, Mass., Mar. 01 /CSRwire/ - INDIGENOUS, a California-based organic and fair trade fashion company, is kicking off the 2013 segment of its “Our World. Our Worth” campaign.WORTHWEARING This latest segment of the campaign aims to address the entire industry by inviting brands and fashionistas to join in an online ethical discussion.

“This is the age of fair trade and organic and this is the decade when the supply chain will be transformed. Major brands like Eileen Fisher are collaborating with us at INDIGENOUS to do what is right for artisans and workers in the fashion supply chain. However, a lot of brands are still on the sidelines. Now is the time to join the conversation, to stand out and be counted as those who seek fair and just industry practices,” says Matt Reynolds, co-founder and President of INDIGENOUS.

On Tuesday, March 5, 2013, it's your turn to join the discussion! In a Tweetchat hosted by CSRwire, INDIGENOUS and other socially conscious brands, we will discuss the critical aspect of fair trade and organic fashion.

Up for discussion: #WorthWearing

  • What should fashion consumers look for to become more socially conscious?
  • Can consumers save money and look good in ethically made apparel and accessories?
  • How do organic materials protect your health and the Earth?
  • How much do fashion brands care about overconsumption and the environment? How can they generate long-term sustainable change in the fashion industry?
  • Should fashion brands be more transparent in their supply chain and where does a company draw the line with transparency?
  • What will encourage more brands and manufacturers to protect human rights? How far should a fashion brand go to expose slave labor and/or elevate poverty?
  • Should brands take a deeper look into their policies and procedures and even jeopardize profitability to uphold human rights? What is at stake?

Moderated by CSRwire's Editorial Director Aman Singh, the chat will feature brands, retailers, bloggers and fashionistas.
