Stop Child Labor in the fashion industry

This petition had 66 supporters

Do you ever wonder where your clothes came from? Who made them? Well, we want to know!

In India, children work up to 16 hours a day in horrible conditions with little to no pay. In the collapse of the Rana Plaza factory in 2013 more than 1,100 workers were killed and over 2,000 injured. Before this collapse, there were two other factory fires totaling 350 deaths. What were the conditions in these places?

I found a few other closed petitions and felt compelled to make another after learning more about the topic. We want companies like Forever 21, Urban Outfitters, Walmart, Primark, and Armani to comply with the Transparency Pledge. This is the Transparency Pledge according to CleanClothes: 

The company will publish on its website on a regular basis (such as twice a year)
a list naming all sites that manufacture its products. The list should provide
the following information in English:
1. The full name of all authorized production units and processing facilities.
2. The site addresses.
3. The parent company of the business at the site.
4. Type of products made.
5. Worker numbers at each site.

Companies will publish the above information in a spreadsheet or other searchable format.

Thank you for supporting!
