Monday 29-02-2016 - 15:28

Did you know that NUS owns Epona Ltd, an ethical clothing supply company? To celebrate Fairtrade Fortnight 2016 we’ve produced a series of short videos explaining why Epona exist and the positive social impact of buying Fairtrade goods.

Each year, Epona Ltd sells somewhere in the region of 750,000 units of clothing to institutions and students’ unions.

At the beginning of 2016, Richard Brooks, Simon Blake, Evette Prout, Daisy Lindlar and Tom Andrews visited Raipur, India to learn all about Epona’s operations, what it means to be an ethical clothing supplier, the positive social difference Fairtrade makes to the world around us, and what the student movement’s role in changing the market should be.

During the visit, the team shared their stories from Raipur for this daily blog. Now, to coincide with Fairtrade Fortnight 2016, we’re releasing a series of short videos explaining who Epona are and what they do.

Episode one: ‘Cotton’

Episode two: ‘Education’

Episode three: ‘Food’

Episode four: ‘Epona + NUS Visit India’
