B IS FOR BIODIVERSITY
.
The clothes you wear have an impact on the planet’s fragile ecosystem in sometimes unfathomable ways. Take a cotton T-shirt, for instance. If you traced the cotton fibre back to the field where it was grown, you may discover the soil has been stripped of its nutrients and farmed to death – literally.
Biodiversity encompasses the extraordinary variety of life on earth, all 8.7 million species of animals, plants and fungi. Each species plays a fundamental role within their ecosystem. Every life is intertwined; as a plant grows and dies, it supports countless other species. This vast web is intricate and irreplaceable, yet often ignored.
.
FASHION ENVIRONMENT CHANGE is an A-Z of the many ways the fashion industry impacts climate change and harms the environment. We know that clothing production doubled between 2000-2014 and the industry’s increasing reliance on fossil fuel-based polyester means that it is used in 60% of our garments. We examine the impact that the associated use of energy, water, pesticides, and chemicals is having on the environment. We take a moment to consider the complex issues and to suggest easy actions and ways we can all be the change.

A IS FOR ANTHROPOCENE

To further understand how our own everyday activity is radically shaping this geological age make sure to watch @theanthropoceneproject’s new documentary “Anthropocene: The Human Epoch”

Check out @theanthropoceneproject and the powerful photography of @edwardburtynsky which illustrate the impact human activity is having on the landscape.

A IS FOR ANTHROPOCENE
.
100,000 years ago, at least six human species inhabited the earth. Today there is just one. Us. Homo sapiens. How did our ancestors dominate amongst these other human species and how did we come to abide by laws, trust money, build cities and kingdoms and most importantly how did we come to consume fashion the way we do today?

A IS FOR ANTHROPOCENE “We are in the midst of the most urgent wake up call that humans have ever had. The Anthropocene is the first geological era to be shaped by our actions – it names humans as homewreckers of our only shared abode. It marks a scientific consensus about what is going on and a gaping lack of cultural consensus with regard to what it means to live well. This is a question of how we perceive ourselves in nature, of which we are all a part.”
.
Wise words from @dilyswilliams in the latest zine #FASHIONENVIRONMENTCHANGE
How do you perceive yourself in nature? What responsibilities do you have?

MAKE A FASHION STATEMENT. We love this beautifully embroidered reminder to keep asking #whomademyclothes by @elizabethlcline 😍

Huge moment! The cover of @bof features @kalpon.akter who began working in a garment factory in Bangladesh at age 12 and has since become a prominent voice in the fight for safer working conditions, fair pay and the end to gender-based violence at work in factories. We were fortunate enough to spend time with @kalpon.akter in Dhaka recently and we interviewed her for our podcast where she told us her story and explained how garment workers’ collective voice is a key to positive change. Listen to @kalpon.akter on the Fashion Revolution Podcast on @itunes @acaststories or www.fashionrevolution.org/podcast ❤️⚖️👏 #fashionrevolution #whomademyclothes
