Here’s 10 must-follow eco fashion champions:

Fashion Revolution Day

Fashion Revolution Day was created in 2013 — following the tragic collapse of the Rana Plaza complex in Dhaka, Bangladesh, killing over 1,100 people and injuring over 2,500 more. On 24th April each year, Fashion Revolution Day will bring everyone in the fashion value chain together and help to raise awareness of the true cost of fashion, show the world that change is possible, and celebrate all those involved in creating a more sustainable future.
