We are excited to announced that our first event is taking place today! Ethical & Fair Trade Products in the Marketplace is happening at the ING Direct Cafe on 221 Yonge Street (Toronto) from 5 to 7pm.
Our panel features Kelly Drennan (Fashion Takes Action), a representative from Me to We and Michelle Gruda (ethicalDeal). Additionally, Me to We will be featured at a booth at the event and we have some cool door prizes thanks to our great sponsors and partners! The panel will be focused on the discussion of where this ethical products sector stands today and what must be done in order to achieve scale and mass market appeal. Questions we will discuss include:
- Does the sector need to look at how traditional retail operates?
- Do fashion and industry trends need to play a greater part in ethical sourcing of products?
- What will it take to attract a larger group of consumers to go ethical?
