Forests are being destroyed, and communities are losing their lands and livelihoods, all so leading fashion brands can have cheap fabric. Far too many fashion brands STILL haven’t taken action to ensure that these egregious impacts never enter their supply chains.
We have been telling leading fashion brands about how communities are losing their livelihoods, having their farmland destroyed, and are facing brutal police repression since we launched this campaign — almost a year ago. While some companies have started to pay attention, most of them are still ignoring this important issues. Without taking action, it is impossible for these brands to ensure that forest destruction and human rights abuses are not part of the clothing they are selling every day.
Send your message now: tell leading fashion brands that they can’t ignore this issue any longer — it is time to develop a strong public policy and due diligence systems that eliminate egregious sources, prevent future risks and to ensure that the policy is implemented throughout their entire supply chain.
