Greenpeace Fashion Detox Manifesto Campaign
|

The ‘Fashion Detox Manifesto’ was started by Greenpeace back in 2011. The campaign came into fruition after a year long investigation, which the organization culminated into their ‘Dirty Laundry: Unraveling the Corporate Connections to Toxic Water Pollution in China ’ report. This report brings attention to hidden links between textile manufacturing facilities in China that emit hazardous chemicals into the water, and international brands like Adidas and Nike. Those two popular brands were the first to be challenged by Greenpeace to sign their detox manifesto and urge their suppliers to eliminate all toxic, persistent and hormone-disrupting chemicals from their products and production processes. It’s estimated that 17-20% of the world’s industrial water pollution comes from the dyeing and treatment of textiles.

 
Bags with a Mission

There are many ways in which fashion can be sustainable: simplifying, it can be produced using eco-materials (organic, recycled, vegan..) and/or be ethically produced, with respect for the people and the environment. But there's another dimension that some brands go through, and that entails for the product or line to have a philanthropic purpose. This means that collections are made following the principles just explained, but then a part of profits goes to fund humanitarian projects. I discovered many small objects are involved in this cause, like bags. These items are mostly sold online and for this reason a bag is generally easier to manage than garments, because you don't need to size it, it is easier to incorporate into your wardrobe and, above all, «every woman wants and "needs" more than one» as confessed to me by Megan Reilly Cayten, co-founder of the Catrinka Project, together with Sumana Setty and Amisha Patel.

According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), a whopping 13.1 million tons of textile waste are sent by Americans to landfills every year (and that’s a stat from 2011!). While some of this waste is recovered for recycling and export, rescued and reused material only totals about 14% of clothes and shoes sent to the trash. Textile waste is a big problem. If this is news to you, you’re in good company, as almost 80% of Americans have no idea clothing waste is a problem in such dire need of addressing.

There is that expression that we have all heard before, “go big or go home,” it is a phrase that describes the code for champions. It appears Eco Fashion Week took this to heart finishing off for the second season in a row at luxury retailer Holt Renfrew, hosting an in-store event in collaboration with Obakki alongside H Project’s new venture “Uncrate India.”
