Join the Fashion Revolution
By Alex Berryman
This week (April 19-24, 2021) is Fashion Revolution week! Each year, during this week, companies and individuals all around the world take a stand for more equitable treatment for garment manufacturing workers and more environmentally sustainable practices by the industry. Fashion Revolution is a movement advocating "for a clean, safe, fair, transparent and accountable fashion industry". This year, Fashion Revolution is focusing especially focusing on the relationship of the fashion industry and its impact on the environment, especially emphasizing the impact of making and dyeing textiles by using the hashtag #whomademyfabric.
Now more than ever is the time to recognize our power in changing the industry. Join us in becoming a Fashion Revolutionary!
Fashion Revolution started after the Rana Plaza complex collapsed in Bangladesh in 2013, killing over 1,100 people. This elevated the conversation around the need for transparency in supply chains and how consumers can affect change. We believe that with increased transparency, brands and consumers can identify whether or not people are being exploited in the supply chain or if the environment is being harmed. Fashion Revolution aims to restructure the fashion industry to value people and the environment.
