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.

Join #whomademyclothes1. 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
Go ShoppingZady has launched their second super ethical in-house line, a t-shirt made entirely in the U.S. from organic cotton.
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.
