This section includes “snapshots” compiling useful information on a range of topics relevant to ethical fashion.

Working in fashion usually means having very limited spare time. The EFF developed SNAPSHOT resources to give an introduction to a variety of topics- that can be read in less than 5 minutes.

We publish SNAPSHOTS on postcards and distribute them at events.

All the SNAPSHOTS can also be read in this resource section of the website.
