The Environmental Justice Foundation are looking for enthusiastic, happy spirited and friendly volunteers with an passion for ethical fashion to help at the charity’s pop-up shop in Covent Garden.
Do you love talking about ethical fashion? Dream of changing the world one organic t-shirt at a time?
The EJF is a human rights and environmental charity making a direct link between environmental security, social justice and basic human rights. Top names in the fashion industry are gathering their might to support our cause, including Alice Temperley, Richard Nicoll, Jenny Packam, Ciel, Giles Deacon, Allegra Hicks, John Rocha, Zhandra Rhodes, Luella, Betty Jackson, Christian Lacroix and Katherine Hamnett.
This will be the fifth retail space the charity has taken over in the past 2 years bringing the issues to some of London’s most prestigious High Streets about ethical consumption, fair trade and solutions to environmental and human rights abuses from fisheries to fashion. Our t-shirts are designed on the theme of childhood, lost innocence and hope and represent more than a million children forced to work in cotton fields around the world.
As a volunteer you will be helping the general running of the shop to promote designer organic cotton t-shirts and other ethical fashion brands, talking to customers about ethical fashion, learning about EJF campaigns, flyer-ing for the shop around Covent Garden and helping to organise upcoming events for the shop.
Basic lunch costs will be reimbursed.

Shop opening hours are 10am – 7pm Monday – Saturday and 11am – 6pm on Sunday.
