Since finding fame on the J.K Rowling franchise, Emma has gone on to use her platform to promote sustainable fashion and environmental living.  

In 2011, she created Pure Threads- a green capsule collection in collaboration with Italian designer Alberta Ferretti.

In 2017, she also created an Instagram account called the Press Tour, to document her sustainable outfits and encourage her fans to go green as well.

She told Vogue in 2010: ‘I will work for anyone for free if they’re prepared to make their clothing fair trade and organic.’  

The actress lent her name to a line of clothing for ethical brand People Tree and last year, she joined the board of directors of Kering, a luxury brand group, in her capacity as an advocate for sustainable fashion.

Launched by Prince William and The Royal Foundation in October 2020, The Earthshot Prize has been inspired by President John F. Kennedy’s ‘Moonshot’ programme in the 1960’s, which united millions of people around the goal of reaching the moon.

The Earthshot Prize aims to incentivise change and inspire collective action around our unique ability to innovate, problem solve and ultimately repair our planet over the next ten years.

The Earthshot Prize is based on five ‘Earthshot’ goals: Protect and restore nature; Fix our climate; Clean our air; Revive our oceans; Build a waste free world. Five £1 million prizes will be awarded each year for the next 10 years, providing at least 50 solutions to the world’s greatest environmental problems by 2030.

Harry Potter star Emma Watson’s green spell: From designing sustainable clothing to vowing only to work with environmentally conscious businesses

In 2017 she enlisted the help of Eco-Age for the international Beauty and the Beast press tour (pictured)

Emma Watson has been championing environmental causes since as far back as 2009, aged 19, when she paired with the English ethical fashion label People Tree – which focuses on low-impact clothing.

The collaboration was to produce fair trade clothes – with Watson’s particular interest in sustainable fashion.

The clothes, which were co-designed by the Harry Potter star, were hand-made by disadvantaged groups in third-world countries and could be traced back directly to their sources.

In 2011 she collaborated with renowned Italian designer Alberta Feretti on a on a ‘green’ capsule collection known as Pure Threads.

The collection was made up of five pieces, including two dresses, a shirt, a long skirt and a pair of denim shorts, which featured organic fabrics and came in eco-friendly packaging.

In 2017 she enlisted the help of Eco-Age for the international Beauty and the Beast press tour.

The idea of the campaign, called The Press Tour, was  to showcase the best of environmentally and socially conscious fashion – from the red carpet to magazine pages.

She used the campaign’s Instagram page to make videos and posts highlighting how all of the dresses in the tour were made and from what materials.

Last year she joined the board of directors of French-based multinational Kering in her capacity as an advocate for sustainable fashion. 

She has also vowed to only wear sustainable clothing while on the red carpet.

The 31-year-old actress, who is also a leading voice for feminism, has previously stated that she is only happy to work with brands as long as they are environmentally conscious.

Just this month it was announced Watson had invested in an environmental start-up with Twitter co-founder Biz Stone.

The pair are aiming to tackle the world’s plastic problem with the start-up, named FabricNano.

The London-based firm uses cell-free biomanufacturing as a way to reduce the use of plastics and petrol in products.
