{fashion revolution } take action: show your label

while fashion is a creative industry + a highly sophisticated industry, it is not always a clean or safe industry. this week marks the beginning of fashion revolution week, which brings people together from all over the world to use the power of fashion to change the story for the workers who toil in the apparel industry in perilous + unsafe working conditions.

here's what you can do: simply take a picture of yourself showing the label of one of your favorite items of clothing, post the pic to social media and ask the brand #whomademyclothes. remember to look for fair trade labels when shopping for clothes to ensure decent working conditions + fair terms of trade for farmers + workers. interested in learning more? watch this video or read this article "this girl walked through fire so we could get jeans for $9".

remember, green hearts, together we are stronger.
