My name is Laricea Ioana Roman and I am a student at Kingston University, London (KU ID 0942659). I am doing a Master in Marketing, Advertising and Communications and at the moment I am writing my Dissertation.

In order to come up with some answers for my topic, I need some opinions from people who actually bought ethical clothes.
