NZ label Untouched World is about to become the first fashion company in the world to carry a United Nations sustainability logo. Untouched World has been given UNESCO approval to attach the UN Decade of Education for Sustainable Development logo to its clothing line. “This is the first time a New Zealand company has been invited to use the label and it will put Untouched World and New Zealand on the map in taking sustainable business seriously,” says Peri Drysdale, chief executive of the Christchurch-based company.
