If you know a bit about sustainable fashion, you will most likely have heard of People Tree. The London based fashion brand is one of the pioneers when it comes to Fair trade and ethical, sustainable fashion, and the brand can be proud to say they never comprise the people in the supply chain or our planet for their products.
