Practical and affordable ways to join the Fashion Revolution all year long
The Fashion Revolution week seems far away, and as for many celebratory events, the risk is that we forget about it when the date is over. I don’t want to forget its sense, I try to be guided by its values all year long. For this reason I’m writing this blog post, where I’m telling you what Fashion Revolution means to me and how, even with a small budget, you can support this philosophy of ethical fashion.
But before showing you a small list of practical and affordable ways to join this movement, I would like to introduce, if you don’t know it yet, the Fashion Revolution, with some extracts from their website. If you already know what it is, skip the following text and go straight to my suggestions ;)
From the Fashion Revolution website:
FASHION REVOLUTION IS A GLOBAL MOVEMENT
CALLING FOR A FAIRER, SAFER, CLEANER,
MORE TRANSPARENT FASHION INDUSTRY
Fashion Revolution is a global movement calling for greater transparency, sustainability and ethics in the fashion industry.
We want to unite the fashion industry and ignite a revolution to radically change the way our clothes are sourced, produced and purchased, so that what the world wears has been made in a safe, clean and fair way.
On 24 April 2013, the Rana Plaza building in Bangladesh collapsed. 1,138 people died and another 2,500 were injured, making it the fourth largest industrial disaster in history.
That’s when Fashion Revolution was born.
