Fashion Revolution Week
This week 23rd – 29th April 2018 is fashion revolution week. The 24th April marked the 5th anniversary of the Rana Plaza factory collapse, which killed and injured thousands of garment workers in Bangladesh. The factories there made clothes for many high street stores. This terrible disaster started the fashion revolution, which calls to make the fashion industry safer, fairer and more transparent.
The fashion revolution movement asks us to ask ‘Who made my clothes?’ and is asking brands to come forward and answer that question. We should all ask that question about what we wear, we must ensure that workers are working in safe conditions and paid a fair wage for the work they do.
Fashion revolution.org have lots of ideas and resources to give ideas for what we can do to make a difference.
Our T-shirt’s are 100% organic cotton and carry the fair wear label. Our suppliers are committed to improving the working conditions in the textile industry.
Stanley/Stella was conceived from a belief that the textiles industry has to start acting a lot more responsibly. As we see it, change is the only option. And that starts with being aware that every purchasing choice can make a difference. We are committed to genuine sustainability right through our supply chain. Our affiliation with Fairwear Foundation (Corporate Social Responsibility) as well as our high standard certifications (GOTS, OE 100, OE Blended, OEKO TEX, REACH) prove our commitment to sustainable practices. From fibre sourcing to distribution of the finished product, we scrutinise every process and every supplier for sustainability.
Here at Lifeforms Art, we really want you to be able to wear our t-shirts knowing that, not only do they promote the conservation message, but they’re made with respect for people and planet.
Don’t forget to ask ‘Who made my clothes?’
