Fashion Fights Poverty

Fashion Fights Poverty's mission is to raise awareness for initiatives that encourage and support creative, effective, and sustainable means of challenging poverty.

Fashion Fights Poverty recognises "designers and organizations who embrace the powerful potential of creativity and design to address issues of poverty by adhering to such principles as fair trade, equitable compensation and the use of environmentally-sustainable materials."

It also promotes responsible consumerism and helps connect ethical designers and the growing population of socially-conscious shoppers.

FFP has supported some fantastic charities such as Nest, Aid to Artisans and BeadForLife.

Keep up with their good works on Twitter, Facebook or MySpace.
