Today marks the 8th anniversary of the Rana Plaza disaster in Bangladesh, which injured over 2,500 and killed 1,134 garment workers, being mostly young women. Since then Fashion Revolution have become one of the world’s leading fashion activism movements and have worked to create a global fashion industry that conserves and restores the environment and values people over growth and profit.
As a consumer it is increasingly more important to question and criticise where your clothes come from. Here are 5 ways you can contribute to the Fashion Revolution today and moving forward.
- Follow Fashion Revolution on social media. This is a great way to keep up to date on the campaign and join in the conversation. (Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn)
- Not a social media fan? Or just want to make sure you’re up to date. Sign up to the weekly newsletter here to make sure you have all the latest news.
- Question your favourite brands… #WhoMadeMyClothes #WhatsInMyClothes #WhoMadeMyFabric. Send them and email, spam them on Twitter, call them out. Ask until you get answers. As a consumer you deserve brand transparency and you deserve to know where the clothes on your back come from.
- Donate, donate, donate. Although Fashion Revolution is free, small donations are key to helping the campaign continue and thrive.
- Download online resources and digital assets. Fashion Revolution has a large collection of online resources including social media content, posters and branding packs. These resources can be used to help spread the word online and offline.
