Though long overdue, we are happy to learn that the Benetton has agreed to compensate victims of the accident at Rana Plaza in Bangladesh.

Almost two years after the collapse of the Rana Plaza garment factory building in Bangladesh the last major Western retailer with documented contractual ties to Rana Plaza has finally decided to contribute to a fund established by the International Labour Organisation to compensate victims of the accident. Though long overdue, we were happy to learn that the reluctant Benetton has now agreed to accept liability and more importantly to pay up. The next Fashion Revolution Day established to highlight the broken links in the supply chain will take place on the second anniversary of the disaster, the 24th April, with global activities to encourage consumers to reflect on who made their clothes.
