Including a sourcing and business database, online network, business intelligence platform, and global programme of events, the SOURCE offers a sustainability tool kit for the fashion sector. Up to 100 new members join the SOURCE every week.

Are you a member yet? The best way he Ethical Fashion Forum can support you is through membership.

The EFF approach is:

INCLUSIVE
Open to designers, retailers, buyers, fair trade producers, manufacturers, NGO’s, fashion students and tutors, consumers… The EFF aims to provide a platform for shared practices, pooling resources, communication and links across the industry.

PROGRESSIVE
Complex, global supply chains make it difficult for fashion companies to implement sustainable standards in a single step. The EFF encourages progressive, structured practices towards sustainability.

GRASS ROOTS
Founded by fashion designers and businesses in response to challenges to sustainable practices, the EFF has been designed and developed by the industry, for the industry.

NOT FOR PROFIT
EFF is a not for profit organisation, focused upon poverty reduction, education and the environment, in relation to the fashion industry. It is run by a representative board.
