Hey Claire, I'm the Director of Sustainable Fashion Australia here in Melbourne - would love to connect you up with our Facebook Group. I think you'd find the people really interesting and we'd love to hear your perspective on things! Feel free to get in touch!
I share similar views as you have mentioned above. It's certianly not easy to go completely ethical and sustainable, but certainly every bit helps, and i think this is an important message to broadcast.
There is a really cool quote that i stumbled across awhile ago 'change the rhythm of your life. Work less, earn less, consume less' it really spoke to me.
I am also based in Sydney and in the process of launching an ethical and sustainable online fashion store.
Definitly happy to share my thoughts on this matter.
