Emma Watson models off a few new items from the new collection of Fair Trade Fashion for People Tree in these new shots.
The 20-year-old actress made a special trip to Dhaka, Bangladesh to see just where and how the women at Swallows, one of People Tree’s Fair Trade partners in Bangladesh, work.
Emma shared, “Following my summer collection for People Tree, I wanted to visit Bangladesh with Safia to see the difference Fair Trade makes.
“The contrast between the slums in Dhaka (the capital of Bangladesh) where the people who work in the garment factories live and Swallows (the Fair Trade community supported by People Tree) was all too apparent.
“You can read a short interview of my thoughts on the trip below, but I still find it hard to convey what Fair Trade means to those producing our fashion – it’s just so impressive to see how the women have used Fair Trade clothing to escape poverty and empower themselves and their children. I was very moved and inspired.”
