Day 01 | STOP SLOW GO
Story | 🛑 STOP Fast Fashion ⚠ SLOW Consumption 💚 GO Forth For Freedom⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Do you ever ask #WhoMadeMyClothes 👕👖 or wonder about the journey they took to arrive in your closet? More than we’d like to believe, our clothes were products of sweatshop and forced slave labor. Human-trafficking is a $150 billion dollar per year industry!! 💰💰💰 @FreetheSlaves sponsors events like #FashionForFreedom and raises awareness to help end slave labor throughout the world. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Each of us can easily help reduce the demand for slave labor in the fashion industry by buying fewer clothes and steering clear of fast fashion, one of the sectors of the fashion industry that fuels the high production volume pumping dollars into slave labor markets. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Before you head out shopping, ask yourself if you really need another pair of jeans or a new top. Does something you already have do the trick? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
🚦Stop, Slow Down, and Go Forth to #FreeTheSlaves ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
