Fast fashion businesses are drowning us all with mass consumed, disposable & synthetic clothing at a huge environmental and human cost along the supply chain. Footwear businesses are pumping out toxic chemicals into the factories and the water systems with little health and safety.
Never before has the agenda of global warming and modern-day slavery been more important than now. But we need to act now. Next year isn't gonna count.
Join us as we join forces with our favourite comedians to bring to light some of the actionable ways in which we can all, little by little, make a huge collective difference to the global landscape of the fashion industry.
With words from some of the leading movers and shakers on how we can all make incremental change. Expect rebel rousing at its very finest. Fast fashion is so 2018, darling.
Po-Zu is an award-winning ethical footwear brand working to halt the negative impacts of fast-footwear production to the people in the supply chain, the ecosystems around them and the global environment.

*The evening of 19 Jan 2019 will be supporting the following causes:
The Environmental Justice Foundation (EJF) is a UK-based charity (No. 1088128) working to secure international protection for the environment and human rights. EJF calls on governments to recognise climate refugees and support a new legal agreement to guarantee their rights and their fair claim to our shared world.
The Cup is a project of the Freeset Trust and operates as a community centre, located on the corner of the main entrance into Sonagacchi and seeks to provide a place of community, fun, hope and freedom for women who daily face marginalisation, trauma, despair and entrapment escaping the red-light trade due to poverty and human trafficking. Freeset has been offering alternative employment to the women of Sonagacchi since 2001 and The Cup is a key means by which relationships are formed and freedom found.
