Eco-Auction to benefit ‘Fashion Takes Action’
Fashion Takes Action (FTA) has teamed up with Green Living this holiday season to give consumers an opportunity to purchase a green gift from a wide variety of eco-friendly products and services. The online auction will run on the Green Living Marketplace from November 22nd to December 5th with net proceeds benefitting Fashion Takes Action, the only non profit organization in Canada that is dedicated to sustainability in the fashion industry.
Proceeds raised from the auction will support FTA’s on-going efforts to assist members in their sustainability journey, and help consumers make better choices when it comes to their wardrobe. “Not only is this a great opportunity to promote our members to the public,” states FTA Founding Executive Director Kelly Drennan. “But through this auction, we can potentially influence consumers into making smarter, more ethical purchasing decisions at a time of year when they are spending.”
Items from the 2012 Holiday Eco-Auction include:
· Over 35 fabulous sustainable fashion and accessories items
· Luxurious spa getaways and toxic free beauty products
· Local and sustainable restaurant certificates and products for the home
· Women’s bike and accessories kit to get around town in style (with no carbon footprint).
Auction closes December 5th.
