We believe that small acts can lead to systematic change. We also believe that transparency in the clothing industry matters and, like fashionrevolution.org, that a great first step towards change is asking ‘who made my clothes?’Our CARE, ASK, KNOW Ribbon Share is aimed to begin, continue or develop small conversations (on the footpath and beyond) about the bigger issues of valuing textile and garment makers, demonstrating transparency in the supply chain and caring about environmental impacts of clothing manufacture and purchase.
24 April 2018 marks five years since the horrific collapse of Rana Plaza in Bangladesh where more than 1130 garment workers lost their lives and over 2500 people were injured. Our ribbon share event, gifts members of the public a limited edition ribbon tag we have printed for this occasion.
Hosted in conjunction with Fashion Revolution Day Aus NZ, and the larger global movment fashionrevolution.org. Join us in this small act towards making change to the outdated models and mindsets in the global fashion industry.
Have you ever wondered who made your clothes, how much they’re paid, and what their lives are like? If not, start asking!
