January news collection about sustainability and related topics
Regularly we publish articles, we have found in our research on the subject of sustainable fashion or related topics, on our social media channels. The articles here on #SustainableFinds are a monthly selection which we recommend to read on the publisher’s website. The content need not necessarily correspond to the mission of Gwand. We want to create consciousness with knowledge, this is what we mean by #GWANDEducation. The GWAND Sustainable Fashion Festival is a non-profit organization. On our blog or on our social media channels (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, YouTube and Pinterest) you will find more exciting articles on the topics.
Note: We have not been paid by the publisher or anyone else for sharing these articles.
