On April 24,2013, Rana Plaza, a multi-story clothing manufacturing facility just outside Dhaka, Bangladesh, collapsed, killing 1,129 workers and injuring more. It is the deadliest garment factory disaster in history.
Fashion Revolution Day was launched shortly after as a way to both honor the victims of that terrible tragedy and to rally people to help change the global manufacturing industry for the better. The Ethical Blogger Network devised a fun style challenge as a way to spark conversation and share ethical resources. We think it’s a great way to unite people under a shared goal of greater transparency and safer working conditions for workers worldwide.
