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 and Gucci, have already abolished sandblasted jeans in their collections. But in the 'global center of fashion', Italian luxury brands like Dolce & Gabbana have yet to publicly ban sandblasting from their supply chains! Thousands of lives are at risk... Join us in calling on Dolce & Gabbana to ban sandblasting.
