"We aim to create affordable everyday wear, using sustainable materials while only working with projects that provide stable employment with a fair wage to their workers."

While helping to run the social enterprise Bambooka (selling Bamboo sunglasses and donating the profits to charity) I discovered the ethical fashion space as Bambooka was aligned with many of the aspects being discussed.

Through exploration I learnt about the devastating effect the fashion industry is having on the lives of the people making our clothes and the environment, with people being made to work in conditions that constitute modern slavery and polluting from the factories leading to debilitating health issues for children and newborn babies in the communities that surround the factories.

I started making changes with my personal fashion choices relying on buying second-hand but when I looked to buy new from sustainable and ethical brands I found they were either too expensive or too niche for my taste.

CDUK aims to create affordable everyday wear, using sustainable materials while only working with projects that provide stable employment with a fair wage to their workers. I understand creating another t-shirt brand isn’t going to solve the wider issues, I hope through our drive to be accessible to all we will become a gateway into learning about the issues within the fashion industry.
