$20,000 for ethical fashion!
Congratulations to the wonderful Edda Hamar who just won a whopping $20,000 from our friends from the Qantas Foundation in the 'PitchUp Awards.' Five of FYA's Young Social Pioneers pitched their projects and the final decision was handed over to the public. After a tight race, and around 3,000 votes submitted, Edda's Undress Shop came out on top. The Undress Shop is an online store that sells only ethically produced clothing and underwear, so you know that whatever you're wearing, it hasn't harmed another person or the environment.
