It’s the second annual Fashion Revolution Day, when we commemorate the 1,133 garment workers who died when the Rana Plaza collapsed in Bangladesh. They were making clothes for us here in the United States, but many brands have yet to come clean about who makes their clothes and in what conditions.
So here’s what you do:
1. Wear an article of clothing inside out.
2. Take a picture of the tags.
3. Share that picture on social media, tag the brand, and use the hashtag #whomademyclothes
Zady has launched their second super ethical in-house line, a t-shirt made entirely in the U.S. from organic cotton.
