I love fashion but I don’t want to wear clothes that come at a cost to people or our planet.
I first heard of the organisation Fashion Revolution a number of years ago on the anniversary of the Rana Plaza complex collapse in Bangladesh killing 1138 and injuring 2500 in 2013, mostly women. It is the 4th largest industrial disaster in history.
Fashion Revolution is a global movement calling for greater transparency, sustainability and ethics in the fashion industry. It raises global awareness of the true cost of fashion to all with the question, Who Made My Clothes?
Each year Fashion Revolution Week 24th – 29th April, is recognized with various events around the globe and challenges us to seek out the ethical practices of the brands we wear by taking action.
Three things you can do to take action:
- Send an email to a brand asking #whomademyclothes – click here
- Take a selfie with your clothes inside out and post on Instagram with #whomademyclothes #fashrev
- Try a #haulalternative
