Clothing brands should be transparent!

How is it possible that in 2018 over 25 million individuals are enslaved across the globe -- primarily in the electronics, agriculture, and fashion industries? Did you know that this “industry” of enslavement is fueled by the lack of transparency within the supply chains and the illegal practices that are sanctioned? But here’s the question: What are we, as consumers, going to do about it?

About one year ago, I decided to take a stand against companies that don't pay fair wages (typically meaning that parents are forced to put their children to work and earn additional wages -- preventing them from earning an education in school), use horrid working conditions and factories, child labor, human trafficking, and exploitation by vowing to wear ethical fashion. But what exactly is ethical fashion? Ethical fashion is a term that is used to describe a process of designing, creating, retailing, and selling products that addresses issues such as workers’ rights and working conditions, exploitation, fair trade practices, sustainable production, the well-being of the environment, and an animal’s welfare.

My goal in creating this petition is to spread awareness so that others will be able to join the fight. But, long-term, it is my hope - either through legislation or of their own accord - that companies and brands will proudly publish how they source their materials and the rights and opportunities provided to their workers in this global market. 

All I’m asking for is additional information: a transparent supply chain. While companies focus on voluntary compliance or reporting, this is no longer good enough. Through both financial support (purchasing products from companies that already support these initiatives) and eventual legislation, consumers will be able to make their own conscious choices and voices heard. Vote with your dollar!

Hold brands accountable for their actions! Sign below and join me in this fight!
