We recenty joined the biggest party of the year at Abercrombie & Fitch’s corporate headquarters near Columbus, Ohio. Running as #TeamRainforest in it’s 5K race, we asked thousands of Abercrombie & Fitch’s employees and their families to join the movement to ensure that rainforest destruction and human rights abuses are never part of its clothing. In addition to running the race and sharing information and stickers with the crowd, we made sure our message was seen and heard with an airplane circling overhead trailing a massive banner that read: “Is A&F with #TeamRainforest?” Help us keep the pressure on! Send your message to Abercrombie & Fitch’s executive leadership urging them to be leaders for human rights and rainforest-free fabrics.
Dear Abercrombie & Fitch leadership,I am writing today to ask you to take action to eliminate the risk of rainforest destruction and human rights abuses from your clothing supply chain.Right now, Abercrombie & Fitch stocks almost 300 items that use fabrics made from trees––fabrics like rayon, viscose, or modal. These fabrics are destroying rainforest habitats for endangered species, like—like sun bears and clouded leopards—and threatening the human rights of people who call the forest home.It’s time for Abercrombie & Fitch be a leader and join over 60 leading brands who have made commitments to ensure that rainforest destruction isn’t found in their supply chain. By failing to address environmental concerns, Abercrombie & Fitch is out of step with the demands for conscious fashion and at risk of lagging behind its competition.As Abercrombie & Fitch transforms itself to meet the needs of the next generation, it is the ideal time to prioritize environmental stewardship. Take action today to develop and implement a strong policy which will ensure that forest destruction and human rights abuses are never found in Abercrombie & Fitch’s supply chain
