Fashion Revolution 2019

Fashion Revolution Week, the annual global campaign calling for a fairer, safer, more transparent fashion industry, will run from Monday 22nd – Sunday 28th April 2019.

This year Fashion Revolution Week will highlight how the future fashion industry must respect both people and planet with fair and decent work, environmental protection and gender equality. From Australia to Brazil, Uruguay to Vietnam, more than 275 million people are again expected to take part in Fashion Revolution Week by asking brands #whomademyclothes.

The campaign will kick off on Earth Day, Monday 22nd April, when Fashion Revolution will announce that it has signed the UN Fashion Charter for Climate Action, signalling the start of a greater campaigning focus on educating the public about the devastating impact of the fashion industry on global warming, and offering positive actions we can all take to reduce the carbon footprint of our clothes. Fashion Revolution will also take a stand against the environmental threat to our planet by declaring a Climate and Ecological Emergency.

Over 1,000 Fashion Revolution events will be held in more than 100 countries around the world, from catwalks and clothes swaps, to film screenings, panel discussions, creative stunts, open studios and workshops.

We have been invited to help celebrate Fashion Revolution Week and we'll be at Beyond Retro on Saturday 27th. In collaboration with No Planet B Community, the event will see talks, panel discussion, live music, ethical stalls, vegan food and networking!

Tickets are now available on Eventbrite and you can get a 20% off using code SAMSARA20.

What we have accomplished together

January is when we all stop to reflect on the year that has just passed by and start putting together all our dreams and hopes for the year to come. It is that time when we can be proud of our achievements and learn from our mistakes. 
We wanted to share our accomplishments with you because through your support, enthusiasm and participation we managed to achieve some big results. 
Here is our work at a glance towards the achievement of some of the UN Sustainable Development Goals.

 

GOALS IN ACTION:

We have also donated to Surfers Against Sewage through the sale of our special edition keyring to help them protect our coastlines and keep fighting against plastic pollution. 

2019

We will start the new year by visiting our producers in Cambodia to design our new collection and bring back some stories and inspiration.
All of this couldn't have been done without you and we hope that 2019 will bring even more amazing results.
 
Thank you everyone!

Ditch Black Friday: Shop Ethical Instead!

We are really happy of being one of the sponsors of Ethical Hour's campaign Shop Ethical Instead. 

On 19 November, before Black Friday Ethical Hour will be hosting a Twitter chat and running a social media campaign with the theme #ShopEthicalInstead. The aim of this campaign is to encourage people to shop from smaller ethical brands over the festive season and give gifts with a positive impact.

Black Friday is the busiest shopping day of the year and it is our chance to show with our wallet what kind of businesses we want to support and send a clear message that people and the planet must come first. By shopping from smaller ethical brands we vote for a different economy, an economy that doesn't put profit over everything and everybody. 

We firmly believe that by shopping ethically we can unlock the power of business for good, a business that empowers communities and cares about our planet.

Our daily choices really matter and we can all join our forces this Christmas. If you want to be part of the conversation join us and Ethical Hour for an evening of discussion on Monday 19 November. Tune in at 8pm on Twitter and use hashtags #ethicalhour and #shopethicalinstead!

#EthicalHour is the world's largest online ethical network. They are building a supportive, ethically-focused community, facilitating positive change and growing the ethical economy. #EthicalHour connects people, businesses and bloggers that are ethically-minded and passionate about creating a better world.

It's Social Saturday!

This year Lost in Samsara will be joining Social Saturday, a nationwide campaign designed to raise awareness about those who are doing business differently, putting people and communities first.
 
Social Saturday will start on Monday 8 October and will finish on Saturday 13 October. 
There are over 80,000 social enterprises in the UK – businesses which trade to meet a social or environmental purpose and which reinvest the majority of their profits back towards meeting their social mission and we are really proud to be one of them. 
The campaign, organised by Social Enterprise UK, encourages consumers to use their spending power to support social enterprises. From coffee and beer to fashion and toiletries there are social enterprise alternatives for everyday consumer goods.
Peter Holbrook CBE, CEO of Social Enterprise UK, said:
“Social enterprises are creating equality through business – they are offering quality products but are set up in a way that directly addresses some of the biggest social and environmental issues we face. Whether it's coffee carts creating jobs for the homeless, bottled water funding clean water projects abroad or soap manufactured by people who are with disabilities – there are social enterprise alternatives out there which show that there can be more to business than just the bottom line.
They are more diverse and more innovative than mainstream businesses, creating jobs and opportunities where they are needed most. We encourage consumers to unleash their spending power and support social enterprises on Social Saturday and beyond.”
 
WAYS OF GETTING INVOLVED!
Social enterprises are making a difference in your community and around the world, set up to trade for a social purpose and using business to create a more equal society. They are creating jobs where they’re needed most and tackling some of the biggest challenges we face from homelessness to climate change. They are changing the way we do business and you can support them. 

Find a Social Enterprise near you

There is a very useful Social Saturday map  that features social enterprises that are open to the public during the campaign as well as events that will be taking place between 8th-13th of October, from pop-up markets to community fun days.
We will be at Spitalfields Market if you'd like to have a chat!

Share on Social Media

If you visit a social enterprise, buy a social enterprise product or just want to shout out loud about the social enterprise movement and the impact it's having, you can help get #SocialSaturday2018 trending on social media! Make sure you're following @SocialEnt_UK on Twitter and Social Enterprise UK on Instagram and Facebook.
We hope to see you around for a week of celebration, campaigning and fun!
