This is a guest post by INDIGENOUS
Cavallo Point – August 22, 2014:
It only takes one look to know that Cavallo Point is an extraordinary place. The warm ambiance and charmed location make Cavallo Point Mercantile the perfect place to shop for elegant, sustainably made clothing, jewelry and accessories. Join us there on August 22nd to celebrate an innovative partnership. You’re invited to preview the future of fashion with CAVALLO POINT MERCANTILE, INDIGENOUS and RSF SOCIAL FINANCE.
Want to do more than change fashion trends? Clothing brands linked to charitable works and fair trade initiatives not only improve working conditions and alleviate poverty, they’re also successful! Ethical fashion companies, both large and small, are raising awareness about the realities of “fast fashion” and leading the way to a more sustainable business model.
The human cost behind $5 t-shirts and the fast fashion cycle were made abundantly clear—this time on a global stage—with the tragic collapse of Rana Plaza in Bangladesh. In April of 2013, over 1,110 garment workers—most of them young women—senselessly lost their lives. Now, more than ever, shoppers are aware of the impact every purchase makes. The world is ready for change. It’s time that we use business as a force for good, solving social and environmental challenges.
Be a part of the change. Attend this exciting event and meet INDIGENOUS co-founder and President, Matt Reynolds, who will share how INDIGENOUS is revolutionizing the future of fashion. How can fashion have a positive impact? Join the discussion and let your voice be heard.
