At People Tree we have always celebrated and supported women through our business. But we wanted to take a broader look at fashion, business and all industries to celebrate the amazing work that women are doing all over the world. While there isn’t enough time in the day to acknowledge everyone who deserves it, we want to make a start by shouting out a handful of women a week on The Thread.
We’ll be featuring women in fashion, business, charities and more. Hopefully we’ll not only give a little support back to these amazing ladies, but we’ll also be offering some ideas and inspiration to our followers.
So without further ado, on with the first in our Woman Crush series!
For the Oscars this year, Lily wore this incredible Vivienne Westwood dress made of recycled plastic bottles!
Who made your clothes? Probably a woman. 80% of garment workers are women. Yet, by the age of 25 most women garment workers are too overworked to stay in the industry. Today is International Women’s Day. Today we say THANK YOU to the women who make our clothes 💛 👩🏾👩🏼👵🏿👧🏽👩🏻👵🏾 #IWD2016 #FashRev

For #IWD this year, Fashion Revolution ran this simple and powerful infographic calling us to support the women who make our clothes. What a brilliant call to action!
Supporting Fairtrade doesn’t just have to last a fortnight – keep it going with this delicious smoothie from Planet Organic, founded by entrepreneur Renée Elliott.

We’re very big fans of Neal’s Yard for their ethics and for their products. Their Wild Rose collection has recently had a packaging makeover and looks better than ever! The company was founded by the great woman Romy Fraser, and has also been certified as organic by the Soil Association. We particularly love this collection.
Finally, we’re delighted that the fund set up by The True Cost to support Shima and her daughter’s education is now in overfunding – what an achievement!
