Sophie Jones

Volunteer

 

“Hi, my name's Sophie and I’m volunteering with Friends of the Earth Cymru on their sustainable fashion campaign.

"I have been doing environmental volunteering for 3 years now, previously working in environmental education and doing practical conservation work in Central America.

"Whilst studying at university I became aware of the adverse effects that mass consumption of fashion and textiles are having on climate change, alongside the ethical implications for people who produce them.

"This motivated me to volunteer with Friends of the Earth Cymru to create a network of passionate individuals committed to tackling fast fashion and textile recycling in Wales.

"Friends of the Earth is a great charity to volunteer with and their support is second to none. The staff are so friendly and their work across Wales is making significant progress in tackling climate change.”
