Work News

“We’re seeing fast fashion producers put the welfare of their people at risk in the pursuit of profit as well as the environmental consequences of overconsumption writ large in the world's oceans. It is high time that the industry refocused its social and environmental purpose and I hope this nomination is recognition of the efforts that we are making at Paguro Upcycle. I long for a high street which shares my passion for individuality, quality and sustainability.”

“I’m blown away to be nominated and make it to the finals for this award. This year has been tough, but being recognised for my hard work, after building this company up myself from scratch, is so rewarding.”
