10 Eco Fashion Champions You Need to Follow on Social Media
A go-to guide of eco fashion champions you should be following on Facebook and Twitter.
The community of fashionistas, eco fashion warriors, slow fashion heroes, and fibershed makers continues to swell on social media — and that’s a good thing. The more of us there are to advocate for ethical, renewable, socially just fashion, the more pressure we can create, collectively, to change the most broken, exploitative, wasteful aspects of the industry.
Here’s 10 must-follow eco fashion champions:
Orsola de Castro
Queen of upcycling, Founder of the From Somewhere and Esthetica clothing labels, and Co-Founder of Fashion Revolution Day.
Founded by Rebecca Burgess, Fibershed is building an international system of regional textile communities that enliven connection and ownership of ‘soil-to-soil’ textile processes, and are re-designing fiber systems to support ecological agriculture and regional economies.
A preeminent lifestyle destination for conscious consumers.
Creative director of Eco Age, a consultancy company specialising in enabling businesses to achieve growth and add value through sustainability. Livia also co-founded the Green Carpet Challenge, a project which pairs glamour and ethics to raise the profile of sustainable fashion.

Eco Warrior Princess
Jennifer Nini’s wonderful ethical fashion musings from Down Under.
Fashion Revolution Day
Fashion Revolution Day was created in 2013 — following the tragic collapse of the Rana Plaza complex in Dhaka, Bangladesh, killing over 1,100 people and injuring over 2,500 more. On 24th April each year, Fashion Revolution Day will bring everyone in the fashion value chain together and help to raise awareness of the true cost of fashion, show the world that change is possible, and celebrate all those involved in creating a more sustainable future.

Pashm & Co. — ethical and renewable.
Tiffany Renée, A former Petaluma Vice Mayor and outspoken advocate of Slow Fashion, relaunched Pashm & Co in the fall of 2014 with a very simple but important belief — that fashion can be both beautiful and ethical, and can bring prosperity to where it’s needed most in the world. She frequently speaks on Local Economy and Regenerative Businesses.
For Pashm & Co., it’s all about feeling beautiful inside and out — ‘Cashmere with Soul’ — providing the world with exceptional handcrafted Chyangra® cashmere garments, to the benefit of the Himalayan people.
