20 Years of Ethical Clothing Australia

Learn why Ethical Clothing Australia began some 20 years ago and gain insight into Australia’s dynamic and resurging textile, clothing and footwear (TCF) manufacturing industry.

Moderated by ECA National Manager, Angela Bell our line-up will include panellists 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.

Presented in partnership with Virgin Australia Melbourne Fashion Festival (VAMFF).
