Description
The mission of Connected Threads Asia is to educate consumers about the negative social and environmental impacts of the fashion industry and providing them sustainable alternatives. We believe that education plays a vital role for this change to happen. We are always looking at ways to inspire the community by providing new and relevant initiatives and opening doors for collaboration.

We saw the demand for more information on how we can incorporate sustainability in Singapore Fashion businesses.
