The Rainforest Action Network pushes the fashion industry towards a more forest friendly production.
The Rainforest Action Network (RAN) recently launched a campaign called Out of Fashion, in order to take action against the fashion industry’s destruction of the rainforest. The organization claims that some of the world’s biggest fashion brands need to take greater responsibility for the sake of the rainforest, and hence drastically change their production processes. RAN has collected fifteen well-known brands, including the Prada group (Prada, Miu Miu) and LVMH (Marc Jacobs, Dior, Givenchy etc.). Through the campaign they hope to pressure these influential companies towards a more forest friendly production as well as the removal of human rights abuses, as these brands today make use of poisoning textiles. One can be a part of the action by simply providing some basic information here, where you can also read more about the campaign.
