Email the brand

Send a letter to your favourite fashion brands and demand that they make their clothes last! And also ask them: how will you take responsibility for all the waste you created until today?

Dear  ,
Sincerely,  
   

Workers voices

While it may feel normal to shop online again for many consumers, the most vulnerable people in our supply chains—the workers—still feel all the IRL effects of COVID-19: mountains of orders and produced but unsold clothes which global brands refuse to pay for.

Support the workers

You want to do more?
We vote for resilient, glocal solidarity instead of nerve-racking discount orgies. A donation can directly help the textile workers. Here we have selected emergency funds and charitable organisations that we trust.


SOLIDARITYWORKS Corona Emergency Relief Fund by Femnet

Femnet works in exchange with their partner organizations in India and Bangladesh, to quickly determine the most urgent needs so that the textile workers can protect themselves and their families and ensure their livelihood. SAVE supports migrant workers in Tamil Nadu / India who can no longer afford food. Cividep supports textile workers in Bangalore / India with basic food and rental payments. NGWF educates textile workers in Bangladesh about COVID-19 prevention.

Initiative Lieferkettengesetz

Unverantwortliche Geschäftspraktiken dürfen sich nicht länger lohnen. Statt Social & Moral Distancing braucht es jetzt einen gesetzlichen Rahmen für Verantwortung entlang weltweiter Lieferketten. Freiwillig kommen Unternehmen ihrer Verantwortung nicht ausreichend nach. Die Initiative Lieferkettengesetz ist ein Zusammenschluss zahlreicher Organisationen mit einem gemeinsamen Ziel.

Unterzeichne die Petition

#fairbylaw

Deutsche Unternehmen müssen für Menschenrechtsverletzungen in ihren eigenen Lieferketten verantwortlich gemacht werden – gemeinsam mit zahlreichen prominenten Unterstützer*innen fordern wir die deutsche Bundesregierung auf: Tragt Verantwortung! #fairbylaw

"It's safe to say that online shoppers like the promise of easy returns. But it may surprise consumers to learn what can actually happen to all those unwanted items. A Marketplace investigation into Amazon Canada has found that perfectly good items are being liquidated by the truckload — and even destroyed or sent to landfill."

"The Dead White Man’s Clothes Project offers a visible diagnosis of our disposability. By tracking the waste generated by the secondhand clothing economy in Accra, Ghana we have proven that there is no market capable of absorbing the excess of our modern lifestyle."
