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:

Join #whomademyclothes

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.

Reformation ref scale

On Wednesday Reformation launched RefScale, an eco-gauge on every item to inform customers on how much of an impact their purchase has on the environment. It compares Reformation’s impact on water and CO2 with that of traditional manufacturing methods along the entire supply chain. Reformation will purchase carbon offsets for the total amount created by each item to support environmental regeneration.

To kick-off RefScale, Reformation launched the Low Carb Collection, modeled by Atlanta de Cadenet and featuring items that are produced with the lowest carbon footprint possible.
