Rupa visits UK's most ethical menswear clothing brand

Rupa took the opportunity to visit ethically-driven clothing label THTC clothing. The business which is based in Ealing produce eco-friendly and politically conscious street wear is currently ranked the UK's most ethical menswear brand.

The company, which is now in its 16th year, paired with left-wing political group momentum to produce the iconic CORBYN t-shirt which has been seen on influential music stars such as ‘Stormzy’ and ‘Rag’N’Bone man’.

THTC have worked towards creating an environmentally, socially and economically sustainable business with products made from hemp, carbon-neutral organic cotton, and recycled salvage plastic fibres.

Whilst visiting THTC Rupa also learnt more about the medicinal use of cannabis oil and was provided with a copy of ‘The Boy in 7 billion’ which highlights the need for research into the health benefits of cannabis.

The visit led to Rupa’s question in the following Tuesday’s Parliamentrary debate on medical cannabis in which Rupa asked Minister Nick Hurd MP… “I wonder whether the Minister knows the book, “The Boy in 7 Billion”, by Callie Blackwell, the mum of Deryn Blackwell who, at the age of 10, was diagnosed with a very rare cancer and then, through the use of cannabis oil, made a miraculous recovery. If he likes, I can lend him my copy. I got one over recess at THTC, a company in my constituency that makes hemp t-shirts—sorry, it does not make them; it supplies them. It is not allowed to make them in this country. It also pointed out that in Mexico, where the medicinal use of cannabis has been legalised, violent crime has dramatically dropped. Does the Minister not think that those things are more than a coincidence, and will he not investigate?”
