It’s fashion revolution week, a week dedicated to shedding more light on fashion industry and calling us to ask about who made our clothes and in and under what conditions.
The awareness week started yesterday with the 5th anniversary of the Rana Plaza factory collapse in India which killed 1138 people, mostly young women, and injured many more. It is no secret most of the clothes is made in countries where labour is cheap and labour laws virtually non existent, all in the name of fast fashion and trends.
However, since the consumers (us) woke up to this fact and started asking questions, many brands had to become more transparent about their labour laws as well as the impact of their brand on the environment, which is another big issue. Things started to change slowly, but, like with everything else, for the real change to happen, it will take an effort from all of us. Know what you buy and where you spend your money. Don’t buy from brands with undisclosed labour and environmental protection laws, buy well, reduce, reuse and recycle. There is a list of my favourite ethical fashion brands in a blog post called “5 steps to a brighter tomorrow” on my website.
