For decades frontline and Indigenous communities in Indonesia and around the world have relied on rainforests to support their lives and provide their livelihoods. These forests are now being threatened and increasingly cut down and replaced by plantations of trees used to make wood-based fabrics. Maintaining these rainforests, and ensuring that Indigenous and frontline communities have legal rights to the land, is critical to protecting human rights, endangered ecosystems, and our global climate.
Forest destruction for fabric has to stop. RAN’s Out of Fashion campaign works closely with frontline communities in Indonesia, concerned consumers in the U.S., and business leaders across the world to demand that the fashion industry commits to getting rainforest destruction and human rights abuses out of our clothing.
