It's the final episode of series one of Common Threads! In this solo episode, Ruth and Alice explain why changing the fashion system isn't the responsibility of individuals, and that it's OK to be 'imperfectly ethical' on our quest to become more conscious consumers. We're taking a break until October 2020, when we'll be back with more brilliant guests and new topics to explore.
