Barricades and Boardrooms.
Although not specifically about fashion, this is by far the most informative thing I've read on the corporate accountability movement by someone who has engaged with the private sector and clearly made quite an impact. The author is Jem Bendell, the document can be downloaded for free from UNRISD (United Nation Research Institute into Sustainable Development). Bendell's website is worth a look too, www.jembendell.com. I have tended to be very skeptical of any attempts by large profit-driven corporations to integrate ethics into their operations, but this article made me see that there is a way forward, Bendell's background as an activist clearly has informed his research, and it is encouraging to read something where the so called "anti-globalisation" stance is being synthesised with a business approach.

an educational and mature look at sustainability
fashion pieces are good too
though my only crit would be too much use of non ethical brands (unless i am wrong) - gives it too much of a vogue feel where they pick anyone who will pay the advertising
i would like to see more brands like those on ascension in that magazine for the glossy photoshoots

overall though i am really getting into it and enjoying the articles, stories and information
4 out of 5!

Ethical Business: Sustainability, Commitme nt, Values, Transparency, Environment
Linda Ferrell and O.C. Ferrell.

I had a very good read of this little pocke-size book. Straight forward information on the different structures of organizing an ethical business, with diagrams, examples and easy to read explaninations. Visually playful book and somewhat entertaining at times. I must admit I leraned some very important information, now a bit more informed about my challenges. I recommed this to anyone who wants to make a difference.
