How to find alternatives when you don't have hours to spend online researching?

My sustainable fashion journey started when I wrote my master thesis on the management of its environmental impacts by the fast fashion industry knowing nothing on the topic. What I discovered made it impossible for me to keep consuming the way I did and so I started looking for alternatives and becoming increasingly interested in any initiatives promoting sustainable and ethical garments.

I became involved in Fashion Revolution Belgium and eventually became coordinator in 2016. We raise awareness about the impacts of the fashion industry through documentary screenings, markets, photo exhibition, debates and encourage consumers to ask brands #WhoMadeMyClothes? to hopefully achieve a transparent fashion supply chain.

One of the questions I get asked the most is where/how to find alternatives when you don't have hours to spend online researching. This is why I'm so happy about COSH! being released as I really believe it fills this missing piece that makes sustainable fashion so much more accessible!
