Britons say willing to pay more for fair fashion but trust in brands lacking | Sustainable Procurement News | Scoop.it
Most British consumers would pay more for their clothes if factory workers received fairer wages, but lack trust in the ethical pledges made by brands, a poll found on Thursday, amid growing concerns around labour abuses in the fashion industry.
EcoVadis's insight:

Worker exploitation is rampant in the global fashion industry, if brands are to eradicate labour exploitation, they must take more control of their supply chains. Industry and producers need to distribute better information to consumers about their products.

Worker exploitation is rampant in the global fashion industry , according to countless investigations, studies and reports.
