Take Action 1: Post a selfie holding one of Fashion Revolution's posters on Facebook, Instagram or whatever platform you use. Tag the brand you're wearing and ask them #whomademyclothes or #whatsinmyclothes
We need to transform the relationship between brands and suppliers so that the rights of people and the rights of nature hold more of the power wherever decisions are being made. A simple way to do this is by using social media to challenge brands during Fashion Revolution Week. These simple pleas for transparency can effect major changes in even the biggest fashion brands.
Take Action 2: Ask brands #whomademyfabric on social media.
Global garment and textile supply chains are long, complex, and opaque. We need to demand justice for people at every stage of the production process including the people making the fabrics in our clothes. Use your social media to ask brands #whomademyfabric. Encourage them to disclose textile production sites and take accountability for the working conditions of the people that spin, weave and dye the fabrics.
Take Action 3: Write an email to your favorite brand and ask them #whomademyfabric or #whomademyclothes?
One of the best ways to show solidarity with the people working in fashion supply chains is by directly emailing a brand with your concerns.
Sample email from fashionrevolution.org
Dear _____(brand name),
I am your customer, and I love your style. However, I am concerned about the working conditions in your global supply chain.
There is a notable lack of transparency beyond the first tier of manufacturing where millions of people around the world are working to make the fabrics and raw materials used in the products I buy from you. This is cause for concern because research shows that human rights and environmental risks increase the further down the supply chain you look.
I would like you to tell me #whomademyfabric? Please publish a list of all the textile production facilities in your supply chain. This is a vital first step to take accountability for the working conditions of the people who make your products. I will be following Fashion Revolution's research to see whether you make this disclosure or not.
Take Action 4: Leave a review for a brand to ask them #whomademyfabric or #whomademyclothes
Brands and retailers listen closely to their customers, so one of the most effective ways to share your concerns about working conditions in their supply chain is by leaving them a product review. Leave a review on a brand website.
