Urban Outfitters, JCPenney, C&A #PayUp for orders, save lives

October 2nd, 2020 -  Dear #PayUp Supporters, After getting the attention of fashion brands all over the world, the #PayUp petition has resulted in an incredible $22 billion being unlocked for garment workers. Over 21 brands committed to pay their bills for orders cancelled as a result of Covid-19, saving the lives of millions of mostly women makers who faced food and housing insecurity at the outbreak of the pandemic. We most certainly consider this campaign a victory! As a result of #PayUp’s success, we’ve launched, a movement to reform fashion through 7 actionable labor rights goals, including canceling starvation wages, keeping workers safe, and utilizing enforceable contracts that put workers first. Over the next year, we’ll be pressuring 40 of fashion’s most influential brands and retailers to meet these demands, tracking their progress along the way. We ask that you please make your way over to read more about our demands, and most importantly, sign our new petition. We hope that you will join us for this next phase of #PayUp — the fight for a better future of fashion has only just begun! In Solidarity, The #PayUp Team --- Unless fashion brands like Urban Outfitters, JCPenney, C&A and others #PayUp, millions of mostly women garment makers will go hungry and be forced onto the streets. COVID-19 has ravaged garment makers around the globe with a majority of fashion brands cancelling orders after a constriction in retail sales during the months of March and April. The result of this has caused millions of garment makers to be left unpaid for work they had already completed. With no access to savings, healthcare, or severance, these makers face critical food and housing insecurity. As one supplier stated, "If coronavirus doesn't kill my workers, then starvation will."  Remake’s #PayUp campaign has seen many victories. Thus far, 21 brands have committed to pay in full for orders completed and in production and an estimated $1 billion dollars have been unlocked in Bangladesh and an estimated $22 billion globally, accounting for approximately one-half of the $40 billion worth of wages owed to garment workers at the start of COVID-19. However, there is still more work to be done. Brands like The Children's Place, Arcadia, and Urban Outfitters are still refusing to #PayUp. With some brands, we’ve seen shareholder payouts occur while workers go unpaid, and we also know that certain brands are deleting #PayUp comments on their social media accounts as a way to try and shut down the conversation. To be removed from the #PayUp petition, brands must promise to pay suppliers for all orders that were cancelled or paused as a result of coronavirus. Furthermore, brands must agree to pay for these cancelled and in-production orders in full (without asking suppliers for discounts) and in a timely manner (without extending payment terms unless financing options can be provided).  18 BRANDS THAT NEED TO #PAYUP: Arcadia (Burton Menswear London, Topshop, etc.) Balmain Bestseller C&A Edinburgh Woolen Mill (Bonmarché, Peacocks) Fashion Nova Forever 21 JCPenney Kohl's Li & Fung/Global Brands Group Mothercare Oscar de la Renta Ross Stores Sears The Children's Place TJX (T.J. Maxx, Marshalls) URBN (Urban Outfitters, Free People, Anthropologie) Walmart/Asda/George 21 BRANDS THAT HAVE COMMITTED TO PAY IN FULL FOR ORDERS COMPLETED AND IN PRODUCTION: adidas ASOS Gap (Old Navy, Athleta, Banana Republic) H&M  Inditex (Zara) Kiabi Levi Strauss & Co. LPP (Reserved, Cropp, House, etc.) Lululemon Marks & Spencer Moschino Next Nike Primark PVH (Tommy Hilfiger, Calvin Klein, etc.) Ralph Lauren Target (USA) Tesco Under Armour UNIQLO VF Corporation (Timberland, The North Face, Vans, Dickies, etc.) *We will continue to monitor these brands and their payments to suppliers.* *You can find more detailed brand response information on Remake's update page.* WE WILL CONTINUE TO UPDATE THIS PETITION AS MORE INFORMATION BECOMES AVAILABLE (Last Updated: October 2, 2020)

Petitioning Everlane

Ask Everlane to Share Worker Conditions (& Stop Greenwashing!)

Everlane markets its clothing as being ethically made and eco-friendly — in fact, it's built its entire brand on the concept of radical transparency. But there is a lot the fashion brand is hiding. It's time Everlane stopped greenwashing and misleading consumers about its supply chain ethics. On Everlane’s website, you’ll find the phrase radical transparency, promising a new and ethical approach to fashion. However, when we ran Everlane through Remake’s Seal of Approval process, meant to determine how truthful a brand is actually being about its sustainability efforts, our findings told a different story. Everlane states that its clothing comes from “ethical factories.” However, the brand's website lacks information on living wages, working hours, and maker well-being programs for a majority of its listed factories. To add fuel to the fire, Everlane was recently accused of union busting its American retail workers, as well as trying to keep its employees from discussing their wages with each other.  Everlane also presents itself as a sustainable brand with earth-friendly practices. However, information on the brand's water, waste, and carbon usage is seriously lacking, making Everlane yet another brand that utilizes greenwashing tactics for getting more sales. Join us in asking Everlane to come clean about its practices. Everlane has long benefited off of marketing itself as a radically transparent fashion company — yet, the brand is far from revealing the whole truth about its factory conditions, workers’ well-being, and sustainable practices.
