a new article has surfaced to stir the eco-friendly fashion debate:

it says...

"A 2007 WWF report "Deeper Luxury" gave LVMH a C grade, while Tod's scored an F (after failing to answer basic questions) for sustainability. Then in March 2007, LVMH was expelled from the FTSE4Good Index Series, which tracks businesses conforming to its environmental and social criteria..." reports UK's The Guardian. According to the same article there is little chance LVMH's status on the eco-friendly scale will improve.

If they have not made steps toward improving their product to meet socially conscious standards, should this affect our decision to purchase LVMH products over cause-minded brands like Stella McCartney?

tsk tsk Marc Jacobs...
