Australian woolgrowers were awarded with the inaugural Eco Stewardship Award at the 2018 Green Carpet Fashion Awards held during Milan Fashion Week. The award recognises the commitment to the environment demonstrated by the tens of thousands of woolgrowers across the country.
As the global authority on wool, The Woolmark Company promotes Australian wool’s position as the ultimate natural, renewable and biodegradable fibre and represents pioneering excellence and innovation from farm through to fashion. Chosen by Camera della Moda and Eco-Age, The Woolmark Company’s beliefs align perfectly to that of the Green Carpet Fashion Awards, celebrating the eco-sustainable choices and results made by the fashion industry.
In Milan to accept the Eco Stewardship Award on behalf of Australia’s woolgrowers were Matt and Vanessa Dunbabin from ‘Bangor’ at Dunalley in Tasmania, alongside Richard and Jenny Weatherly from ‘Connewarran’ at Mortlake in Victoria. To add to the prestigious honour, the award was presented by Oscar-winning Australian actor Cate Blanchett.
