Australia is forever changed.

 

I don’t think it’s far fetched to say that Australia is changed forever. The past few weeks have been a terrifying time for many of us and the realisation of the climate crisis unfolding before our eyes continues to leave us shocked and bewildered.

Personally, I hope this bewilderment prompts bold change. I hope this is the turning point in the way we live our lives because, as many scientists have told us, this is the tipping point for the climate.

 I’ve spent the past ten years working to improve the way I create clothes and I weigh the environmental cost into every business decision I make. I urge you to do the same as a consumer. I encourage you to buy consciously and with awareness; buy only when you need and purchase from brands that openly and genuinely divulge their manufacturing process. Please, if you have any questions about the my ethical or environmental decisions as a designer, ask away! I want to have an open conversation with my customers and work with you to better the way we live and the world we live in.

 When it comes to paying it forward, we have been involved with i=Change for many years. It’s a transparent, simple and powerful way for us to give back every time you buy a little Fabrik. Best of all, you choose which charity to send your money! Over the past few years we’ve supported a variety of NGOs and projects, including keeping girls in school, ending violence against women and creating safe places for women to birth.

 As of this week, I’ve opted to re channel our support for the foreseeable future to three bushfire relief projects that are currently in action, including:

Foodbank

Part of the official emergency response network, Foodbank is directly supporting communities impacted by the fires with essential food and household items. Every $1 donation buys $6 worth of supplies.

Save the Children

Save the Children is setting up Child Friendly Spaces within evacuation centres for children to feel safe, and will support families as they begin their road to recovery.

 Greening Australia

Greening Australia aims to restore 330,000 hectares of native trees across Australia by 2030. Their work to replant our habitat is now even more crucial.
