Do you know who made your clothes?
This week marks the four year anniversary of the Rana Plaza factory collapse in Bangladesh. 1138 people were killed and many more were injured on April 24th, 2013. The building was constructed with substandard materials and in blatant disregard for building codes. Despite this, factory owners urged workers to continue their duties. Bangladesh is the world’s second-leading exporter of clothing, trailing only China. Many people still work under these conditions today.
This tragedy could have been prevented if more ethical working conditions were maintained. As a brand, we vow never to work with suppliers that subject their workers to these conditions.
