Fashion Revolution Israel is hosting the 2nd official event at The Porter School of Environmental Studies at Tel Aviv University.
What is Fashion Revolution?
Fashion Revolution is a global movement and Non-Profit organization calling for transparency, sustainability, and ethics in the fashion industry. Fashion Revolution is present in over 90 countries.
Fashion Revolution Week is our #whomademyclothes campaign which happens at the time of the Rana Plaza factory collapse, where 1,138 people were killed and many more injured on 24th April 2013.
We love fashion, but we don’t want our clothes to come at the cost of people or our planet. By coming together, we can change the way our clothes are sourced, produced and purchased.
We are all united by the fabric on our back and together we can make a difference, so join us to engage, network, and discuss!
– Eco-friendly, sustainable fashion exhibition & hands-on booth to show you how to reinvent your clothing.
– A screening of a part of the documentary “The True Cost”.
“The True Cost” is a documentary film, directed by Andrew Morgan that focuses on fast fashion. It discusses several aspects of the garment industry from production—mainly exploring the life of low-wage workers in developing countries—to its after-effects such as river and soil pollution, pesticide contamination, disease and death. Using an approach that looks at environmental, social and psychological aspects, it also examines consumerism and mass media, ultimately linking them to global capitalism.
