About project: CLOTHES

Buy clothes responsibly

We raise awareness of the problems associated with clothing and textile industry among people interested in fashion, both as designers and consumers. We draw attention to social and environmental abuses related to the production of clothes we wear everyday. We also promote positive alternatives to the conventional, global brands. We show how to stand up against the violations of human rights, workers' rights and continuing pollution of the environment. We advise on how to encourage manufacturers to implement equitable policies that are beneficial both to employees and consumers. We promote responsible fashion that supports human rights, the principles of Fair Trade and recycling. We help producers to find out how they can manufacture clothes responsibly.
At the moment we are implementing the project "Local Organizing and Women's Leadership Development Program", which concerns the support of employees of the clothing industry in Poland and Central and Eastern Europe, and the project "Filling the Gap: Achieving Living Wages through improved transparency", as part of which we are fighting for transparency in the supply chain in the clothing industry.
