History in the Making: 20 Years of Ethical Clothing Australia
A panel discussion hosted by Ethical Clothing Australia (ECA), looking back through the archives and history of the organisation to explore the evolution of its unique and successful accreditation program. Learn about why ECA began some 20 years ago and gain insight into Australia’s dynamic and resurging textile, clothing and footwear (TCF) manufacturing industry.
The discussion will be moderated by ECA National Manager, Angela Bell and the line-up will include panelists from three ECA-accredited businesses who joined the program at different stages throughout its history. From the perspectives of these three ECA-accredited businesses, you will learn why ECA accreditation exists and how it supports the workers of Australia’s TCF manufacturing industry. The discussion will also explore what the future holds for ECA and the consumers advocating for a more ethical fashion industry.
This event is owned and operated by Ethical Clothing Australia and proudly promoted by Virgin Australia Melbourne Fashion Festival as part of the Independent Program. Please contact the organiser directly for further information.
