Watch Harry Potter actress Emma Watson as she is “moved and inspired” by fair trade producer group Swallows in Bangladesh. As part of her ongoing work with People Tree, Emma joined Safia Minney in Bangladesh where they visited both the slum homes of factory workers and the People Tree supported Swallows community. In the video and this interview, Emma documents the difference in living conditions and encourages others to really understand the difference that fair trade makes to the lives of those in the developing world.
As always we would love to hear your thoughts, does seeing the reality of living conditions encourage you to purchase fair trade clothing? What are your opinions on fair trade fashion? Does Emma’s public support of People Tree and fair trade fashion make you think more about where your clothing comes from? Let us know we love to hear from you!!
