Happy Easter Sunday! I hope you’re feeling rested and rejuvenated after a couple of days off. Enjoy this week’s round-up of ethical lifestyle news.
Jeanswest is launching a ‘Homespun’ collection of Australian made menswear, for ‘a limited time only’. Let’s hope it’s not just for a limited time, because ethics is not something that should be a once-off special.
