⁣⁣ ⁣⁣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.⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ There were five garment factories in Rana Plaza all manufacturing clothing for big global brands. The victims were mostly young women.⁣⁣ ⁣⁣

Have you ever wondered who made your clothes? How much they’re paid, and what their lives are like?⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ Our clothes have gone on a long journey before they hit store shelves, passing through the hands of cotton farmers, spinners, weavers, dyers, sewers and others. ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣

Approximately 75 million people work to make our clothes. 80% of them are women between the ages of 18 and 35.⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ Today, both people and the environment suffer as a result of the way fashion is made, sourced and consumed.⁣⁣ ⁣⁣

This needs to change! Join the fashion revolution!
