Happy True Cost Tuesday, where we unpack some of the reasons behind why we at Yobel only provide fair trade, ethical, and sustainable clothing and accessories. This is our sixth volume and you can read previous volumes here. Today I’ll be talking about Fashion Revolution Week.
This week is what’s called Fashion Revolution Week and it was founded to bring awareness to the poor working conditions for garment workers after the Rana Plaza collapse in 2013. The Fashion Revolution’s vision is “A global fashion industry that conserves and restores the environment and values people over growth and profit.” You can see why we are fans!
This week is a global campaign for growing the community of awareness for livable wages being paid to garment workers and for them to have safe working conditions. There are a handful of ways to get involved: find local events to attend, follow on social media and share content, join the fashion revolution conversation, sign the petition and of course, know who made your clothes!
I’ve said it before, and I'll say it again. We as consumers have the power to change the fashion industry. We may have unintentionally created fast fashion, but we can intentionally stop it.
Thank you for being part of this with us.

A little local love does a lot of global good!
