We have been doing quite a lot of celebrating over the last two weeks. Wednesday this week marked the six month anniversary of our launch, and on Thursday we went to collect our first award!
The Future 50 Awards recognise the "achievements of the young entrepreneurs who have demonstrated an innovative approach to advancing a socially responsible business venture. These candidates are the pipeline to a brighter future and a better tomorrow."
It's hugely encouraging to have our efforts acknowledged in this way after only a few months and we were thrilled to have been included. We were also pleased to see sustainable fashion well represented amongst the winners, with bridal designer Tammam and jewellery designer Fifi Bijoux also being recognised.
Whilst we are rather shamelessly blowing our own trumpet, we are very excited to announce that The Good Wardrobe founder Zoë Robinson has been shortlisted for the 2013 Observer Ethical Awards. Last week the Observer announced that "the best and the brightest bringing sustainable change to the UK make the 2013 Observer Ethical Awards shortlist". The awards sponsored by Ecover cover ten categories which "celebrate and support the standout campaigns, breakthrough business ideas, people and initiatives which make sustainable change and social justice a reality". Zoe is one of three women shortlisted in the Well dressed category, a new style category sponsored by Livia Firth's company Eco Age.
You can find out more about the Well dressed award from a blog Zoe wrote in March: The Observer Ethical Awards: how 'Well dressed' are you? To read the full shortlist visit the Guardian online.
