Dan Pontarlier founder of Sustainable-Man joins the EBD family and brings a fresh perspective and new energy to Ethical Brand Directory (EBD). He becomes a partner from January 2020 and will be helping us look at ways we can enhance our ‘social media influence’.
Dan will inject a wealth of digital knowledge and sustainability expertise to Ethical Brand Directory, and work with me to raise the profile of ethical and sustainable fashion. I am delighted to welcome Dan to the EBD family – and I cannot wait to take our social media presence to the next level.
We asked Dan what he was looking forward to as Ethical Brand Directory’s Trusted Service Partner, and he said:
“I cannot wait to help more ethical brands acquire the reach and visibility they deserve. Through our united passion for fashion and commitment to sustainability, I will advise EBD on social media growth and help Roberta promote EBD as a platform to change the fashion industry through consumer-driven awareness and empowering independent brands to lead the way, showing there is profitability in working ethically and sustainably and taking responsibility in all that they do. We are here to guide them towards the correct path.”
