Sign the petition to slow down fast fashion

Fast fashion has created underpriced disposable clothing, and is enabling environmental destruction. It is driven by capitalism and corporate profit, driving the world’s biggest problems such as the climate, biodiversity and humanitarian crises.

The fashion industry is responsible for 10% of global greenhouse gas emissions.

🧵We need to regulate the industry and slow down the giant corporate overproduction of fast fashion.

Fast fashion is second to oil in its damage to our environment. Oil is currently involved in every part of the production and delivery process of fast fashion, including the creation of the materials (such as polyester and nylon).

Ghana’s desert and other places around the world have become dumping grounds for the worlds throw-away clothes. Micro plastics are pouring into our oceans everyday from simply washing our clothes made out of plastic.

Fast fashion depends on modern slavery. 1 in every 130 women and girls around the world fall victim to modern slavery, many working in sweatshops creating garments for fast fashion brands.

🧵We need businesses that honour our environment and life on earth, the natural laws that we operate inside of. We need policies from Government that will control and regulate the industry and put the responsibility back on corporations.

It doesn’t have to be this way. By regulating to slow down fast fashion we can use and appreciate what we have. We can support our local clothes designers and makers.

🧵Join the rebellion!

Sign the petition and demand an end to our part in the harms of fast fashion.
