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. 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

Date: Tuesday, March 5, 2013
Time: 1:00pm EST
