Educate yourself.

Following the release of Oxfam’s Made in Poverty report, there’s never been a better time to educate yourself on the global effects of the fashion industry.

And now, you can experience it first-hand.

CERES – A Melbourne-based not-for-profit organisation – is offering consumers the opportunity to travel to India on a sustainability excursion.

The 10-day trip is designed to educate those who wish to be a part of a more ethical industry – by visiting sweatshops, not-for-profit organisations, and various agricultural areas of India.

You will travel to Kolkata, Darjeeling and Auroville, exploring the good and bad of the industry. You’ll be learning about things like textile manufacturing, sustainable production methods and the effects of the fashion industry on local farmers.

The trip is due to take place from April 22 to May 2 this year, for the price of $1,650 AUD per person. This includes your internal transport, meals, accommodation, admin and project running costs (flights to and from India not included).

Rather than a traditional ‘tour’, the trip aims to be a journey of exploration and learning. Anyone (regardless of professional background or age) is encouraged to join.
