This week @fash_rev founder @carrysomers is in Haiti visiting garment factories. “If they give us the opportunity, we can prove to the world that we can make something nice here in Haiti” say the owners of Palm Apparel, a flagship gold-rated facility supplying Gildan. They employ 750 workers here and aim to double by end of the year. There is comprehensive training for all new workers and a restaurant providing lunch. Most workers earn 30-40% more than the minimum wage #imadeyourclothes #whomademyclothes #fashionrevolution #haiti #portauprince @fash_revhaiti @gildanonline

Let's #BeatPlasticPollution this #WorldEnvironmentDay!

Washing synthetic clothes (such as polyester, nylon and acrylic) can release hundreds of thousands of microfibres that pollute the water supply with each wash, and travel up the aquatic food chain (and eventually reaching our seafood). 🐟 Clothes and textiles are the #1 source of primary microplastic to the oceans, accounting for 34.8% of the global total.* 😱 What can you do to reduce the amount of microfibres reaching ocean? 🔎 1. look at the clothing label. If you're buying new clothes choose natural over synthetic materials. 🙅‍♀️2. only wash synthetic materials when absolutely necessary. 3. use a filter bag such as Guppy Friend or a Cora Ball, which capture microfibres in the washing machine. 😎

Do you ever think about where your clothes come from, who made them, how and at what cost?

Fashion Revolution's FREE online course lifts the lid on the global fashion industry. We will share with you a variety of simple techniques to find the answer yourself, and to use your findings to press the fashion industry to value people, the environment, creativity and profit in equal measure. It will encourage us to question what we, as active global citizens, can do to enable change.

You'll have an opportunity to ask questions to this year's Q&A panelists, which include special guests @heather_knight_, @josswhipple and @sarahditty from the Fashion Revolution team, ethical fashion entrepreneur Kalkidan Legesse, and garment researcher Jay Langham.

“If the girl who made your skirt’s not paid, you cannot say it’s beautiful. If the pay is less than living wage, you cannot say it’s beautiful. If the coloured dyes now lie in rivers, poisoned fish, polluted waters, if there’s no sick pay, no toilet breaks, if the factories are in decay, no matter what your mirror says or how stylish you might look today, you cannot claim it’s beautiful “ — Hollie McNish

It’s World Fair Trade Day! #Whomademyclothes? Glad you asked! Fair Trade makes workers’ voices heard. “I really appreciate all the standards in place that make this a great workplace,” says Alka Nim, 28, who works as a tailor in Pratibha Syntex in India. Fair Trade standards create dialogue between workers and management, and rigorous standards for fair grievance procedures and worker empowerment give workers a voice in the workplace and the community.

Thank you 💚 @ellenvonunwerth for signing our Manifesto for a #fashionrevolution
We are setting our vision, we are raising our voice.
We cant know now what will change as a result, or what its effect will be, but this is our manifesto, and we pledge to always speak truth to power: this is our tool to do so. We will take it to policymakers, we will send it to brands, we will ask designers and producers to hang it in their workplace; we will use it in colleges, at events; we will share it widely on our social media and ask our friends and partners to do the same, we will not stop until we see that behaviours have changed, companies have changed, legislations have changed, fashion has changed. Unlike passing trends, this manifesto is here to stay.

You can all show you care and sign our Manifesto 👇👇👇www.fashionrevolution.org/manifesto
