Fairtrade Cotton by Epona UK

Epona Shop Online just launched in UK! One of the first companies who got the Fairtrade mark since they opened in 2005 as suppliers of university branded clothing.

What's great about Epona is their constant pursuit of maintaining ethical style since before the green movement started, and by selling their products to universities, they make sure new generations start thinking about an ethical future.
Fairtrade Cotton has become the fastest-growing product group among six major categories of goods accredited by the Fairtrade Foundation.

By purchasing their cotton in advance, Epona has helped 1500 farmers and their families to receive the Fairtrade mark in Andhra Pradesh, India, where cotton is produced.

They also support the Environmental Justice Foundation's "Pick your Cotton Carefully" Campaign and since spring, every garment has a new care label which states where the cotton was grown and encourages customers to become green.

Thanks to for the information!
