Behind the Barcode
If you’re interested in making more ethical choices at the shopping counter, make sure you check out this year’s freshly minted Australian Fashion Report from the folks at Behind the Barcode, a project of Baptist World Aid Australia. This edition of the report features detailed assessments of 87 companies, including Zara, Cotton On Group, Factory X and David Jones. Each company has been awarded a grade from A to F based on their policies, supplier knowledge, auditing and supplier relationships and worker empowerment. It’s not just a fascinating read, but an important step towards creating a fairer fashion industry across the globe.
