Six Items Challenge : Day 9

22 February 2018 | Conscious Fashion

Charity shops are name-checked by anyone advocating for sustainable and ethical fashion, so I can’t ignore the scandal that recently broke about Oxfam – a charity that I donate to and shop from regularly (where I bought this Longchamp bag).

Of course Oxfam is not the only organisation facing allegations and I am not calling for a boycott, but the fact that female deputy chief executive Penny Lawrence was the only one to exit Oxfam over the handling of the sex scandal isn’t enough.   As a charity that campaigns on transparency and women and girls’ rights it feels like they missed the memo.  Come on, times up.
