FASHION REVOLUTION WEEK 2023
This year’s Fashion Revolution Week, with actions and events on fair and sustainable clothing, will take place from 22 to 29 April 2023, marking the anniversary of the Rana Plaza disaster.
Since then, important developments have been initiated in the fashion industry and the general understanding of consumers has improved. However, we are still far away from fair and environmentally friendly fashion. That’s why we need to motivate more people to get active and stand up for fair, safe and clean fashion.
So join our circle and become part of WE ARE ZRCL. Together we are strong and can move the world.
RANA PLAZA – NEVER AGAIN!
24 April marks the tenth anniversary of the biggest disaster in the textile industry. On that day, the Rana Plaza building near Dhaka, Bangladesh, collapsed. More than 1,000 people died and another 2,500 were injured. The pictures of the disaster went around the world and many people asked themselves for the first time under what conditions their clothes were made.
A lot has changed in the last 10 years. Despite many positive developments, the resource-intensive, exploitative production and consumption system of the fashion industry has basically not changed.
Due to the size of the fashion industry, the need for action is correspondingly great:
- estimated 1.7 trillion USD revenue worldwide from the fashion and textile industry
- approx. 75 million employees (McKinsey, 2021)
- responsible for 10% of global greenhouse gas emissions and enormously resource-intensive
- in the next 10 years, the amount of clothing produced will increase from 62 million tonnes to 102 million tonnes if consumption continues at the same rate (World Bank, 2019)
- more and more people consider clothes as disposable goods
- major disposal problems
This makes our Repair it // Revive it event all the more important. So come by the flagship store in Schwyz on 22 April and repair your broken clothes instead of throwing them away.
