I read this article a couple of days ago – about children who are forced to make clothes for 20p a day. The next morning as I was picking out some jeans to wear & had a thought about where exactly they came from, of course I know which shop I bought them from & what country they were made in, but the article had me thinking past that, to who’s hands had touched them before me. Later on that evening I received an email from Not My Style asking for help in spreading the word about their idea & Kickstarter campaign for their new app. Molly & Beans have donated a few dollars, if you have any spare change this week I hope you can too, or just go and check them out!
ABOUT NOT MY STYLE
Not My Style ranks fashion brands on their transparency about the women and men who make our clothes, so you can choose to shop with stores that match your values. It’s about creating a consumer movement to push brands to be more transparent, and ultimately improve conditions for factory workers. In essence, when brands tell the full story, everyone’s lives get better – our style choices are ethical, and the women and men who make our outfits are treated as we would hope.
