By now you probably know that most of our clothing is made in a way that adversely affects people and the environment, and that the results of using toxic chemicals with no or little regulation has harmed all of us greatly. The chemicals are staggering, and even more sadly, our fresh water supply is becoming scarcer at a time when our global needs are only becoming more pressing and greater.
The Greenpeace Fashion Manifesto is a global movement united in the effort to end fashion's toxic pollution. Greenpeace is asking top fashion brands to be accountable and protect our waters, eliminating the use of hazardous chemicals.
Their Fashion Manifesto:
We are a global movement of fashionistas, activists, designers and bloggers united by a belief that beautiful fashion shouldn't cause toxic pollution. Sign the Fashion Manifesto and become a part of this people power movement.
1. We believe that brands and suppliers must act immediately to stop poisoning waterways around the world with hazardous chemicals.
2. We recognise that this will not happen over night, and want brands and suppliers to be transparent about what chemicals they are releasing into the environment on the road toward toxic-free fashion. It is our water, we have a right to know.
3. We believe in rewarding and collaborating with honest and progressive suppliers and brands, and will encourage others to do the same.
