Waste warriors unite 🤜🏽🤛🏽The final episode of @abctv #waronwasteau airs in Oz at 830 tonight. For those of us without 📺🤗 catch it after on abc iview. We loved being part of the first series and thrilled to see the impact the show has had on behaviour towards single use everything. It’s not just at the supermarket you can refuse a bag. Your fashion purchases don’t have to be carried out the door in a single use bag either. Take your tote and do the 🌍 a favour by letting your fave shops know you don’t need a plastic or paper bag nor the tissue paper with sticker either. It’s a luxury our poor earth can’t afford. 💌 #banthebag #byobag #takeyourtote #fashionrevolution #Repost @planetark ・・・ One thing stays the same. . . . . . . . . . . . . . #BYOBag #reducereuserecycle #zerowaste #WarOnWasteAU #australia #plasticwaste #nature #positive #shop #positiveaction #envrionment #byobag #sustainable #sustainableliving #lifehack #motivation #inspiration #planetark
A really important report has just come out from the @walkfreefoundation. You know that thing called modern slavery? We’ve talked about it quite a lot and there’s good reason. Despite it not being modern in the slightest, it’s prevalent in our fashion supply chains from cotton field to spinning mill to garment factory. 👕 We all need to know the facts. We need to know that 40 million people are enslaved, that 70% are women and children, that around $4 billion worth of garments and accessories are imported into Australia tainted by slavery. We need to know that for many in the fashion supply chain, forced labour is their daily experience, that debt servitude is a trap they can’t escape if they remain invisible, that child labour, passport retention and state sponsored forced labour in the cotton picking sector is only possible if governments, companies and consumers turn a blind eye to it. We can gain visibility into these occurrences and we can end it.🚫 Tracing supply chains is a start. Governments and business play a critical role and the forthcoming Modern Slavery Act soon to come into force in Australia will be an important catalyst to put 🔍🔎 onto our supply chains so we can work together to end this scourge. New Zealand - join in! 〰〰〰〰〰〰〰〰〰〰〰〰 It ain’t modern and it ain’t cool. Join us in the fight against #modernslavery and check out the 2018 Global Slavery Report to learn more #unravelslavery #gsi2018 #fashionrevolution
‘Because Of Her, We Can’ is the theme for this years #naidocweek which finishes today. Celebrating the significant role that Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women play as leaders, trailblazers, politicians, activists and social change advocates, we are excited to support and shine a light on the #remoteopshopproject . In the tiny outback community of Urupunga, Elder Rhonda Duncan is leading the establishment of 'Nulpurr Remote Opshop’ - an initiative supported by Remote OpShop Project. Remote OpShop Project have reimagined the way we recycle our pre-loved fashion to create a sustainable social impact in Aboriginal communities in remote Australia. The op-shop provides affordable clothing to families, supports the learning of business skills, and generates independent seed funds for new enterprise ideas to develop and grow. 👊🏽 “We want to make things out of materials that are already here, like tables out of Mahogany, weaving baskets out of pandanus, selling clothing and making bags and skirts, quilts out of the op-shop clothing and fabric. I feel happy and proud of the community for making this happen” Rhonda Duncan is pictured here and we are also throwing high fives to our mate Tanya for creating this great platform 🙌🏽 Please jump on board and donate to these community op shops > Find out how to give your pre-loved fashion purpose http://www.remoteopshopproject.org #becauseofherwecan #remoteopshopproject 🖤💛❤️
Is a tree worth a tee? 🌱👕🤷🏻‍♀️ On World Environment Day today we’re joining @patagoniaaus and @bobbrownfoundation in the fight to save The Tarkine rainforest in Tasmania. Last night we heard from @rickridgeway of Patagonia, Bob and Rocky Sainty at the launch of a beautiful film that comes out this Friday showing us that it takes just one person to have the passion and the perseverance to help stem the tide of environmental damage. One person can light the spark for others to follow. 💡 It reminded us again how powerful each and everyone of us is in creating the change we want to see. And what’s the link between fashion and rainforests? We lose over 150 million trees to the fashion industry each year. Cellulosics like viscose, modal and rayon are made from tree pulp and much of it can come from endangered and ancient rainforests. We’re encouraged by the work of @canopyplanet and Lenzing in ensuring only plantation timbers are used but the clock is ticking for our precious forests which give us biodiversity, carbon sinks and more. Link in bio to join us in asking for The Tarkine to be given World Heritage Protection 👊🏽 #fashionrevolution #savethetarkine #worldenvironmentday
⚡️⚡️ We are thrilled to announce that we have been awarded Good Design Award’s Best In Class award for Fashion Design at this year’s 60th anniversary awards. 🏆🥇🏆Thank you @gooddesignaus !! ⚡️⚡️ This is such a prestigious award, one that I have admired for so many years, so for @fash_rev to be recognised for five years of advocacy and movement building by this esteemed organisation is so rewarding and motivates us to keep reaching even more people to achieve the change we need to see. Thank you everyone for helping us build the revolution! We are also doubly thrilled to win the @MAAS award for good design!! Woohoo! Thank you so much for this recognition on behalf of our local and global team 🙏🏽💪🏽🙏🏽 I very much missed being at our beloved @sydneyoperahouse this evening to receive the award amongst other incredible industry change makers forging a kinder future for all but grateful to our team for repping the rev whilst I am back once more in Copenhagen flying the flag at the @copenhagenfashionsummit. Well done @carrysomers @orsoladecastro @heather_knight_ @sarahditty & more. Mel x #fashionrevolution #whomademyclothes

So yeah that did just happen. ⚡️⚡️⚡️Can’t thank everyone enough for coming out in droves this past week. We are seriously bowled over and just so proud to provide a platform for such vital questions to be asked and so many important stories to be shared. We are all Fashion Revolution and we couldn’t be happier to have so many of you participate. 💚 We’ll write more in the coming days and due to the overwhelming amount of brands and makers that took part this year we’re going to continue to share their posts as they’re just too good not to. We’ll also share more of our supporters who we want you to hear from and know as we move forward together and not least the brands who responded and still are. Thank you. We’ll be catching up on sleep, spending time with our loved ones, saying hi to our kitchens again and doing some washing! (FRW makes our laundry habits v low impact 😊) but we’ll be sharing in between, promise. And as Fashion Revolution is all about transparency and putting the faces to our fashion I’d thought I’d say hello and share our beautiful team who made it all happen this year so you can see the good humans behind the movement and join me in thanking them. Having run @fash_rev_ausnz for 5 years since our earliest of days when our first campaign was not even born, it’s been a treat to share this journey with many kind souls who give their time for free to create the change we want to see. We are all volunteers bringing you this revolution from a deep well of passion and conviction that this industry we love is broken, it needs to change, and needs to change fast, so it’s a very personal moment to get to the end of each campaign and realise just how many people we have reached and how many minds we have opened. Thank you dear revolutionaries for showing up each and every week. You did good! Mel x 📸 Mel, Laura, Kendall, Olivia, Kirsten, Elyse, Kelli, Bodean, Melanie, Fiona, John and special thanks to @nicolewongphoto for taking sooo many snaps for us this week 🙏🏽 #fashionrevolution
We will not. Thank you everyone for the biggest Fashion Revolution Week yet. We are stronger together and what a force for change we have become❣️👊🏽❣️ #fashionrevolution #Repost @theothelabel ・・・ I'm no photographer but this was the only sign to commemorate 1138 lives at the site of Rana Plaza, Bangladesh. It's up to us to change the industry so that history does not repeat itself. Today is the last day of @fash_rev_ausnz Week but I probably won't shut up about it - ever! We have such enormous power every time we shop and we carry so much influence to our family and friends, so I encourage you to get involved and play a part! Let's do dis! 💪🏼
Thank you @spell_byronbay for sharing your supply chain with us each day this week from your cotton farmers in Peru to a visit to your swimwear maker, to publishing stories about each of your production facilities and hearing of the journey you’ve been on since Fashion Revolution 2016. We’re proud to have provided the spark to inspire you to learn more💚 Hit up Spell’s insta stories, Facebook live & website to learn more 👆🏽👉🏽👇🏽 #Repost @spell_byronbay ・・・ @fash_rev @fash_rev_ausnz 2018 :: DAY 1 🌿 2 years ago I received a letter from a customer, it was April 2016 and Fashion Revolution was underway. Her email asked ‘excuse me, I love your brand, but can you tell me, who makes my clothes?’ I happily told her about the wonderful relationships we had with our suppliers, how we spent so much time on the ground in our factories around the world and witnessed first hand just how great the conditions were. I told her about how we only partner with suppliers who share our values around ethical conduct and how ultimately, we are proud that they are part of our global Spell family.’ But in that moment, I realised something – transparency was more than ‘giving her my word’, and it was more than pointing to a code of conduct on our website, it was 3rd party ethical and environmental certification. So that very month, we started mapping our supply chain and today we're proud to say that our garment factories are ethically accredited to a variety of internationally recognised programs such as Fairtrade, WRAP, SEDEX and BSCI. Oh, and now that we’ve embarked on this journey, ethical verification is only the beginning.. 🍂Today marks the first day of Fash rev 2018 and each day this week we’ll be spotlighting different suppliers, telling you the stories ‘behind the seams’⚡️ Jump over to our MEET THE MAKERS in our People + Planet pages of our website and take a tour of our ethically verified factories around the world ~ you can see @isabella_spell here at our WRAP certified Tees Factory in Lima, Peru. They’ve just worked with us to transition ALL of our tees to GOTS certified organic cotton ✔️☁️ #whomademyclothes #walkalittlelighter #fashionrevolution #fashrev18
We love learning these stories about our strong heritage of making! Long let it thrive 👊🏽❤️👊🏽 thank you for making our hats! #Repost @projectfashionwellington ・・・ This week we had the absolute honour to tour one of New Zealand’s last hat factories Hills Hats in Petone @hillshatsnz The Hills Hats story begins in 1875 when Englishman Chas Hill opened a hatters on Lambton Quay, Wellington. Originally Chas was importing hats from top hatters across the globe, alongside making his own. Fast forward over 140 years later and all our Hills hats are made here in Wellington. Over the last decade there has been something of a hat revolution. People have fallen in love with hats all over again, and leading the charge they have developed their fashion range alongside of the technical and uniform collections. Hills hats supplies to high end hat specialists around the globe and entertains the likes of Fat Freddys Drop, Miss Crabb, Goorin Bros (USA), Ca4la(Japan),. Their desigbs have featured on the pages of Vogue, Harpers Bazaar and Fashion Quarterly. Combining traditional hat techniques with contemporary design, the best hats are made here in Wellington! . . . . . . #hats #locallymade #petone #nzfashion #whomadeyourclothes #milinery

Unsung heroes of @fash_rev_ausnz 🙌🏽 For the fifth anniversary of Fashion Revolution we want to recognise and celebrate our everyday heroes; those people working behind the scenes to make systemic positive change in the fashion industry possible. Whether in business, politics, education or advocacy, individual actions are a powerful contribution to the collective movement. We chatted with our unsung heroes on why they do what they do. 〰〰〰〰〰〰〰〰〰〰〰〰〰〰〰〰〰 Federal Member of Parliament Chris Crewther MP @chriscrewthermp and Labor Senator Lisa Singh @lisa_singh are not your average Aussie pollies. For more than a year now they have been active members of the Government’s Inquiry into Establishing a Modern Slavery Act (MSA) in Australia, using their joint platform to advocate for workers experiencing the most severe human rights violation in global supply chains, modern slavery. After receiving more than 200 submissions and conducting 10 public hearings, the Inquiry Committee made 49 recommendations to improve Australia’s efforts to combat modern slavery here and around the world. Both Chris and Lisa are passionate about leveraging legislation to improve supply chain transparency and chatted with Fashion Revolution about their work and how it relates to the garment sector. Hit the link in the bio to our FB page 👆🏽to hear what they had to say and we’ve also written a blog on the Modern Slavery Act, what it is and what it means for fashion businesses here in Australia. #fashionrevolution #whomademyclothes
Thank you Rebecca for making our clothes! 🙌🏽❤️🙌🏽 #Repost @davidjonesstore ・・・ Fashion Revolution Week 2018 | Meet Rebecca, one of the skilled garment makers who made your @manningcartell pieces in Sydney. “There's a lot of work involved in making something that's good... people can judge something in 3 seconds but the work that goes behind it takes a lot longer, it's a long process.” Rebecca is the Workroom Assistant at Manning Cartell. #FashionRevolution #whomademyclothes @fash_rev_ausnz
Thank you @Rachel rutt_ and @mightygoodundie for sharing your fashion #lovestories with us! There’s always new ways to fall in ❤️ with our clothes 👉🏽 click through to MGU to watch the videos 💯 #Repost @mightygoodundie ・・・ Super excited to share our #BareforGood campaign for Fashion Revolution Week 2018! ✖️ Model & maker @rachelrutt_ shared her love of mending clothes: “I have so many love stories in my wardrobe; these jeans today, I’ve worn them so much, they started ripping and ripping, and with a lot of denim I’ve had in the past that I’ve over loved, I’ve given it away or thrown it away, or making patches. So I started to fix things. And it’s become this ongoing thing, every couple of months there is a new rip and it’s like a new little scar, a new little story.” @fash_rev_ausnz #mightygoodundies  #switchyourunderwear
