The Orange British Academy Film Awards, the British equivalent of the Oscars, is underway in the UK — and that means yet another sustainable gown worn by Livia Firth has graced the red carpet.

The wife of actor Colin Firth, who continues his march towards the Best Actor Oscar, revealed that she would be wearing a dress by Norwegian designer Nina Skarra.

“Yes, I’m having a Rita Hayworth moment!,” writes Livia. “Here we are just about to leave for the BAFTAs earlier this evening. Every time I think I can’t find a better dress for the Green Carpet Challenge, I find a better dress! You will, of course, be the ultimate judge, but I absolutely love this Nina Skarra dress.”

On her website, Skarra says that she’s serious about sustainable fashion. “Every stage in the value chain is addresses, like ecological raw material, non-toxic colour processing, fair labour, packaging, shipment, distribution, and design for long-lasting garments.”

If you’re mourning Sudan the rhino, go vegan

The world needs more vegans because more than dollars or pledges or sad-emoji riddled posts, our individual efforts can stop the demand for horns, for zoos, for animal flesh, and for the exploitation of any living being.

Criticize veganism, but don’t discredit it

Oppressive and harmful behaviour has no place in a movement rooted in anti-oppression.
