‘’The Daintree Rainforest – a worldwide treasure that needs to be protected at all costs.”

The Daintree Rainforest, a worldwide treasure that needs to be protected at all costs’’- David Attenborough
Eco Fashion Week Australia (EFWA) – Australia’s first international Eco-fashion week – is being held in Perth on the 23-27th of November. The event is committed to promoting sustainable fashion both in Australia and globally, and to working with established organizations to protect our environment and wildlife.

The world’s rainforests are disappearing rapidly, with 65.000 hectares cleared or significantly degraded every single day. Australia’s Daintree Rainforest is of international conservation importance and recognized as are the most regional ecosystem in the world. Planting rainforest trees will help to restore the rainforest and serve to protect its many species of plants and animals from extinction.

EFWA has committed to collaborate and support the efforts of Rainforest Rescue year-round by participating as a sponsor in their project, ‘Plant a Rainforest.” On the 5th of September, EFWA 2017 designers planted the event’s very first trees at Daintree in an area of the rainforest previously cleared for sugar cane production. EFWA2017 Eco designers were represented at this event by Queenslander locals who planted new trees on their behalf.

EFWA will be supporting Conservation work of Rainforest Rescue work with our tickets during the busy week.” – Dr. Zuhal Kuvan-Mills, CEO of EFWA and former Conservation, Environmental and Animal Science lecturer of UK.
In support of Rainforest Rescue’s efforts to safeguard, protect the biodiversity of our Daintree Rainforest in Queensland, and ensure its survival for future generations, EFWA will be donating $5.00 from every single ticket sold during Eco Fashion Week Australia 2017, a practice that will be continued each year.
EFWA places community, sustainability, and education at its core while promoting locally, ethically produced fashion, conservation, and sustainability education. The event will run from the 23rd – 27th of November 2017. The week will include fashion shows, free workshop, an Eco seminar series called Disposable Planet (to be held at Curtin University) and a and pop-up shop at the RSPCA’s Reloved boutique featuring Australian Designers with a percentage of sale donated to their programs.
