How conscious is your closet?
This week is not only Earth Week, it is also, Fashion Revolution Week. Fashion Revolution Week serves to honor those who lost their lives or were injured during the Rana Plaza factory collapse in Dhaka, Bangladesh on April 24, 2013.
This week offers people an opportunity to collectively challenge the fashion industry to improve its dangerous practices and to consider who made their clothes. Take a picture with your tag showing, and ask…who made my clothes?
The movement also helps to promote and support brands that are already making a conscious effort to positively impact both producers and consumers. We have been lucky enough to work with so many wonderful Fair Trade, and Ethical companies. It is our pleasure to shine a spotlight on some of them now.
