Ms. Wanda's Wardrobe, a long-time lock on the Pier32 newsfeed, has decided that enough is enough. They've launched the 1% Campaign, asking the big fashion companies to put their money where their mouths are. The manifesto is simple.
- A minimum of 1% of profits invested in responsible sourcing
- Grants available to factories to enable them to make the necessary changes
- More regular and unannounced audits of factories
- Better working with NGOs and trade unions to implement policies that have meaningful benefit to workers
Fast fashion and its dodgy practices are under scrutiny like never before, and they're starting to panic. It's time to fix this. Get yourself over to the 1% Campaign homepage, sign the petition, and let the big fashion companies know that we won't tolerate another Rana Plaza disaster.
