When you shop, ask “who made my clothes?” (not which brand….but, who? literally!). Think about the thread from the garment, to the machinist who sewed it, all the way back to the farmer who grew the cotton. On April 24, 2013, 1133 people were killed and over 2500 were injured when the Rana Plaza factory complex collapsed in Dhaka, Bangladesh. Social and environmental catastrophes in our fashion supply chains continue.
With every dollar you spend, you are voting for more of your purchase – from food to fashion, so…let’s spend our dollars with care – there are so many incredible people, and lovely companies to support. Together, we can use the power of fashion to inspire change and reconnect the broken links in the supply chain. Let’s slow fashion down together and call for a better, fairer, cleaner, safer, and more transparent industry – and a healthier, happier world.
Join the fashion revolution! Check out our Eco Fashion Guide and our list of eco shoes and boots (which are constantly being updated with brands we like and wear). Post a picture on twitter, facebook, and/or instagram of you wearing your clothing inside-out. Remember to tag the brand on the label and ask them#WhoMadeMyClothes. Here’s to ethical, sustainable style!
