Gung Ho Beach Clean Up
Did you know that ninety percent of ocean pollution originates in rivers?
Gung Ho, the ethical fashion label that invites you to ‘wear what you care about’, with their charismatic, quintessentially British endangered species fashion collections is having a beach clean up and Ethical Hedonist readers are invited!
Sophie Dunster the creative director behind Gung Ho ethical fashion invites you to meet her at the National Theatre, on the South Bank between Waterloo Bridge and Blackfriars Bridge this Sunday the 19th August between 12.30 and 3.30pm. The beach clean up will be followed by a picnic or drink, weather permitting.
“Our beach cleanups are very social events, as long as the weather is kind to us,” says Sophie with a smile.
Come along, meet Sophie, help clean up London’s iconic river – the Thames, and discover a made in London, artisan and ethical fashion house to watch. Sophie, a talented illustrator, has that rare ability to unite fashion, great design and activism in bold, extraordinary prints and sublimely wearable dresses, T-shirts, and shirts. Sophie uses her talent for illustration to transform our Blue Planet’s fantastic creatures into the stars of ethical fashion with environmental impact and very covetable fashion. This season the theme of the collection is insects and the damaging effects of pesticides on our pollinators. When you buy a Gung Ho garment, a donation is made to a key nature charity to champion conservation.
