The Environmental Justice Foundation (EJF) are on the look out for volunteers to help with their Cotton Campaign T-shirt Project on Monday 15th and Tuesday 16th March, during office hours at EJF’s London office.
Why does EJF need extra help?
Over the past 5 weeks, EJF has taken the cotton campaign to many trade shows in London and Paris to raise awareness of the issues of forced child labour and environmental abuses in the cotton industry to industry and buyers. Just last week they launched their latest report supporting the campaign called Slave Nation. EJF raise awareness and funds for the project is by selling organic cotton campaign t-shirts through the EJF website and international stores. The Foundation’s latest t-shirts are being produced as I type, and when they arrive at the offices the team need help carrying out quality control and sending the t-shirts out to the boutiques and shops that will help the organisation sell them.
What will I be doing?
General admin – Writing up contact information from people the EJF team have met whilst campaigning at London Fashion Week – Quality control of EJF new campaign t-shirts – Folding, bagging and tagging the t-shirts so they can be delivered to stores. The EJF team need 6 people per day for both these days (15th/16th March) to commit to helping from 10 – 5pm (this can be flexible). If you have friends you’d like to invite to get involved they would be welcome too. The cost of getting the campaign t-shirts organised and sent out can be really high and without the help of dedicated volunteers EJF could not do it. You will be directly contributing to the success of the cotton campaign t-shirt project, which is a major fundraiser to support our projects defending the environment and human rights.
