Have you cottoned on yet? organiccotton.biz is the biz!

Lynda Brown: As we know, thanks to pioneering fashion companies like People Tree, ethical fashion is now an everyday reality, and awareness of the supreme importance of supporting organic cotton farmers and industry is finally getting through (for why, look no further than the Soil Association's latest blockbuster campaign).

Greening my passion for fashion

Anna Louise Batchelor: I recently had an MOT at the doctors and received a gold star for my good health.

From winter wonders to sun ready summer numbers, I have a far too extensive range of dresses. My only saving grace to this vice is People Tree the ‘Fair Trade fashion pioneers’.
