It Was Just YesterdayMarch 1, 2011 - Author: admin - Comments are closed
A new interview from Emma Watson regarding her trip to the Swallows in Bangladesh this past summer was released by People Tree.
On the Swallows being what she expected: “Even after reading about it and hearing about it from you, seeing Swallows is just so different. It’s amazing how simple their techniques are, how they can create such beautiful items which compete with clothing that’s made in a factory or by a computer – it’s fantastic to see.”
On why people should make clothes by hand: I went to the slums of Dhaka and I saw what the conditions are like for the people who work in factories and it’s just horrible. I don’t think that’s a way to work in the developing world.”
On how Fair Trade is going to get bigger: “If you see something that’s Fair Trade, just buy it… it makes all the difference. The contrast between this and Dhaka is incomparable, and sometimes the difference between Fair Trade and not Fair Trade is just pennies. So if you do care, if you have a conscience and want to help, simply make those small choices each time you have the option – it makes such a big difference.”
We have also added a new photo of Emma from her final People Tree line!
I honestly am in awe of Emma and her passion for Fair Trade clothing!
