X’mas everyone! Hope you are having a wonderful night with family and friends! 🙂
Part of being a responsible shopper is to understand where your clothes were made, where the fabric was sourced, and even whether child labor was used when your clothes were being made. Yet, consumers almost have no visibility of how their clothes are made, because retail sellers disclose very little information about their supply chains.
According to 2014 Global Slavery Index, almost 36 millions of people were trapped in modern slavery, and modern slavery is especially prevalent in industries such as manufacturing etc. While a lot of the manufacturing countries have little regulations to combat modern slavery, places such as California or the U.K. have passed laws to demand more transparency in supply chains of bigger retail sellers. Some clothing brands are also promoting fair wages to provide consumers more sustainable options as well.
Here, I am wearing a trench coat from Everlane. Everlane is one of the few brands that provide consumers all their supply chain information and it is definitely a pioneer that promotes radical transparency in clothing supply chain!
Thanks for reading! It’s almost time for me to go back to my dining table!
Smile and style on~
