Guide to Sustainable TextilesIf you are curious about your sustainable textile options, and want help to do your own research, I recommend my Guide to Sustainable Textiles. It has 60 pages of coverage on the sustainability and ethical considerations of all the major textiles. At only $9 is an affordable option that empowers you to assess the ethics and sustainability of your favourite garments.

I will also donate 50% of all book sales to fund progressive research by Get Up, looking at how the extreme right are recruiting marginalized working class and what we can do to fight against this. This is my response to the Trump election. Will you help me raise money for this important research?
