KS3 Ethical Fashion

Citizenship - The Cost of Cheap Fashion

Contribution to Whole-School Ethical Fashion Project

The aim is to provide a film, leaflet or presentation that can be given or shown on the whole-school ethical fashion day. The work should show the real cost of cheap fashion (on all the areas covered earlier), our responsibilities as a consumer and some hints and tips on how to be a more ethical consumer.  They can also present this to other classes who are taking part in this fashion thematic unit to help inform their own activities.  (Pupils may also wish to distribute their leaflet or film with their letters, if they have decided to engage in a letter writing campaign on ethical fashion.)

In addition, the pupils may wish to organise a clothes-swapping event for the whole-school ethical fashion day.  They will need to publicise the event to the rest of the school and set rules for the event itself.  The website below provides useful information for this part of the project:
