About


THE GREEN SCENE is a place to share ideas and inspiration about ethical and sustainable style, and promote a more mindful attitude to how we think about fashion.

Fashion is big business - the industry is estimated to be worth $3 trillion and employs between 60-75 million people, with more than 100 billion garments produced every year. But behind these numbers are some other shocking statistics - it's also the most polluting industry after oil and gas, and is linked to a catalogue of human rights abuses, from forced cotton picking in Uzbekistan to the recent Rana Plaza tragedy in 2013, when a factory collapsed in Bangladesh killing over 1000 people.

This blog is part of a wider #slowfashion movement, which promotes ethical and sustainable values and shows that you can still look stylish doing it! You'll find everything from upcycling tips and DIY guides to brand reviews and comment pieces on developments in the industry, so that as a customer you're empowered to start making more conscious choices.

***UPDATE***

After more than two years of blogging, THE GREEN SCENE will be on hiatus from July 2017 as I focus 100% on my full-time job in sustainable fashion, driving positive change behind the scenes.

I’ll be leaving up all the content and staying active on Twitter, but my Instagram and Pinterest will be on pause for the time being. Thanks to everyone who was a fan of the blog, read my guest posts for the Oxfam Fashion Blog and MOCHNI.com, or followed me on social media over the years - it's been a privilege to be part of such a passionate and active community.
