Lowie Placement Day 4

I completely forgot to update my blog yesterday! I was pretty tired after my first week at Lowie.

Yesterday I volunteered at the Environmental Justice Foundations Pop Up Shop in Carnaby Street.

They are selling 100% organic t-shirts that have all been designed by top designers such as Luella, Christian Lacroix, Alice Temperley and Richard Nicoll. The theme of the t-shirt is about childhood, lost innocence and hope which represents over a million children who are forced to work in the cotton fields all over the world. The t-shirts cost £30 but 100% of the cost goes straight back to the charity as the t-shirts themselves were donated and the designers created the designs for the EJF.

They also are stocking some ethical designers brands upstairs in the shop including Lowie, Pants to Poverty and Goodone. It is a really nice space which makes it even more amazing that the shop was donated rent free to the EJF for 2 months.

I ended up buying the Richard Nicoll t-shirt and 2 pairs of Pants to Poverty pants! But I dont mind spending money on things when I know that the money is going to a good cause.

More info on the charity can be found here or pop down to the shop before it closes on 4th May.
