This year I’ve committed to myself to read more, it’s something I love but just haven’t had the time (or the energy) to do it for years! Today I’m making time for it to happen... starting with one of my favourites, @peppermintmagazine

This is a little stop motion clip I made yesterday. It’s the first time I’ve ever tried anything like this and I had so much fun! It’s slightly rough around the edges, but for a first attempt I’m pretty happy with it! This is my entry to this weeks @creativelysquared challenge #cs_inmotion #maketime #peppermintmagazine
  • “As you start tracing back to the farm, weavers, spinners and raw materials – and envisage doing this for every fabric and trim that makes up our garments – it feels, at first, like a seemingly impossible task! And then there’s the challenge of engaging your supply chain to adopt environmental initiatives like reducing carbon footprints or reducing water consumption,” says Elizabeth, adding that Spell is planning on sharing their findings via eco swing tags that highlight each product’s sustainability wins. “As part of our 2025 vision we are committed to knowing and minimising the environmental footprints of our garments. In terms of specific environmental metrics, we are close to finalising tools and mechanisms to start tracking impacts such as carbon, water and chemicals – using standardised metrics that the entire textile sector uses. Our ultimate goal would be for all brands to start disclosing the environmental impacts of garments on product pages and swing tags, as it really enables consumers to make educated decisions when purchasing clothes,” she says.
