Armani: Stop the Killer Jeans

Sandblasting, which gives jeans a 'worn' or used look, is known to kill workers in garments producing countries like Turkey and Bangladesh where jeans sandblasting is done manually. The process involves workers firing sand under high pressure at jeans. Dust then enters the environment, exposing workers to silica, which causes silicosis in the lungs. Eventually, workers die because they cannot breathe properly anymore. There is no known cure. Some major brands, such as Levi's, H&M, C&A, Gucci, and most recently Versace have already abolished sandblasted jeans in their collections. But in the 'global center of fashion', Italian luxury brands like Armani have yet to publicly ban sandblasting from their supply chains! Thousands of lives are at risk... Join us in calling on Armani to ban sandblasting.

Versace: Stop Buying Killer Jeans

Il processo prevede che i lavoratori sparino la sabbia ad alta pressione verso i jeans. La polvere entra poi nell'ambiente, esponendo i lavoratori alla silice, che provoca la silicosi nei polmoni. Alla fine, i lavoratori muoiono perché non riescono a respirare più correttamente. Non c'è cura conosciuta. Alcune grandi marche, come la Levi's, H&M, C&A e Gucci, hanno già abolito i jeans sabbiati nelle loro collezioni. Ma nel 'centro mondiale della moda', i marchi di lusso italiani, come Versace devono ancora bandire pubblicamente la sabbiatura dalle loro catene di fornitura! Migliaia di vite sono a rischio... Unisciti a noi nel chiedere a Versace di vietare la sabbiatura.
