this photo was taken last year at the boycott fashion action. during this pandemic, a lot more are comfort buying from fast fashion. this industry has a terrible human rights and environmental record. please do not support fast fashion and buy locally or thrift whenever possible.
???? while tempted to buy while in lockdown the implications mean these stores see demand and are using this to pressure non-essential workers into risking their lives in unsafe conditions.
???? fast fashion has awful human rights abuses for its workers who suffer from seriously unsafe conditions and extremely low pay, every year.
???? fast fashion is one of the TOP polluting industries. emissions from textile manufacturing alone are projected to skyrocket by 60% (@unfccc) . Once-thriving rivers are now biologically dead zones replete with cancer-causing chemicals (vox).
???? time to shift the consumerism culture on fashion- do we really need all of these clothes? how many clothes are being thrown away each year?
