Fashion brands and high street stores with a commitment to animal welfare have until June 30 to enter the RSPCA Good Business Awards 2007.
The awards - judged by a panel that includes Sir Paul Smith and designer Wayne Hemingway - aim to reward businesses that have an ethical approach to animal welfare. Criteria include how companies sell and label fur, how they source leather and other animal skin, and innovation in animal welfare. Drapers is the media partner for the fashion category.
Hemingway said: "It's time for fashion to be counted for its contribution to animal welfare, in the same way that ethical trading is being embraced."
The awards will be presented at London's Natural History Museum on October 11. For entry details, visit www.rspca goodbusinessawards.com.
