I know that many of you reading this may love clothes and love shopping just as much as I do… and hopefully you really want to do good for the planet just the same. But do you know who to trust for the truth and where to uncover the most sustainable brands?

Although there is a lot to love about fashion, like how good it makes us feel and the beauty it brings into our lives, at the moment, fashion’s got a BIG problem. There are garment workers all over the world right now that are totally getting screwed. Amidst the turmoil of the COVID-19 pandemic, many orders from fashion brands have been canceled.

The factories that make their clothes are not getting paid for those orders, though they have already been fulfilled. The worst part- the garment workers, many of whom already barely get by on below livable wages, are not being paid for their work.

If you want to help this situation, Remake, the leading organization in cultivating a conscious fashion movement, has started a petition to address the brands who are refusing to pay up, so that these garment workers can get paid, and save millions of lives around the globe, many of them women.
