Next Sunday marks the collapse of the Rana Plaza, a terrible tragedy that could have easily been prevented if the workers were employed in a fair and just way.
“On 24 April 2013, 1,134 people were killed and over 2,500 were injured when the Rana Plaza complex collapsed in Dhaka, Bangladesh. We believe that’s too many people to lose on one day.”
At ecoHaven, we love to bring you beautiful fashion that respects the environment, as well as respecting the maker. It is very important to us that we only stock designers whose work has been produced fairly and ethically. By choosing to purchase clothing that has been designed, grown, woven and sewn in a fair and ethical way, we give our money to companies that are doing the right thing. By voting with our wallets, we help to foster safety, respect, kindness and dignity in an industry that has been taking and abusing for far too long, setting a precedent for other companies to follow.
Over the next week we will feature seven designers stocked at ecoHaven, answering the question “Who made my clothes?” in a bid to celebrate our amazing designers and to highlight the importance of ethical working conditions for all.
