Event details

The fashion industry is said to be the second biggest global polluter after the oil industry. For example, it takes almost 8,000 gallons of water - the amount that a single person drinks in seven years - to make one pair of jeans. When those jeans are discarded, they - and tons more textiles - end up in landfills. 

Sustainable fashion brands want to reduce the impact on the environment - but how can these brands best reach their audiences?

Join digital marketing expert Elina Ketikidi to find out how social media can be used to educate consumers about the importance of sustainability in fashion and sustainable living more generally.

This event will take place live on Zoom Webinar. You’ll receive a link to join a couple of days before the event takes place and a reminder an hour before. During the event, you can ask questions via a Q&A function, but audience cameras and microphones will remain muted throughout.
