Fashion Revolution Week

You may have heard a whisper on the wind or perhaps a shout from the rooftops, next week is Fashion Revolution Week, the week that we ask #whomademyclothes. This is when we hold clothing brands accountable for the treatment of their employees.

The 24th of April 2018 marks 5 years since the collapse of the Rana Plaza garment worker factory in Dhaka, Bangladesh where 1,138 people were killed and over 2500 were injured. This is a terrible tragedy that could have easily been prevented. As the cracks in the walls appeared in the complex’s downstairs shops and bank, the building was evacuated, but the upstairs garment factory workers were forced to come back to work. On that very day during the morning rush, the building collapsed and in the most morbid of ways, history was made.

 

We love fashion, but we don’t want our clothes to come at the cost of people or our planet.

With Fashion Revolution at the helm, we encourage you to ask your favourite labels #whomademyclothes and demand greater transparency in the fashion supply chain. By uncovering the working conditions of garment factory workers and putting a human face to the clothing that we wear, we can help to prevent another disaster like Rana Plaza from occurring. 

 All information was sourced from Fashion Revolution (thank you!), who are a wealth of knowledge and have many amazing resources available to use.

    Hey, ig_un!

    Do you not wish you were Instagram cool?

    Well, today I’m going to teach you the best way to amazingly improve the way you Instagram.

    Imagine: It’s Friday morning and you told yourself you’d hit the gym today.

    You spring up to check your cell.

    Hit the Instragram App.

    You‘re flabbergastered at what is waiting for you: Over 652 likes on a single one of your pictures! There, you see a a huge amount of likes on your pictures—over 738 on a single photo alone.

    Heading to the kitchen, you put the kettle on for some coffee and check your Instagram while you wait.

    Bam! Another 20 likes.

    Buzz—another message pops into your inbox from a follower. They are asking you for advice on how you manage your food, and are congratulating you on your third month of hitting the gym.

    As you read it, you begin to smile. It is a amazingly sweet-looking person, and they love your posts.

    Within minutes, your phone buzzes AGAIN.

    Hmmm, ANOTHER message. You close your cell and throw it in the bag. Time for the gym.
    Let’s stop the simulation there. People have a hard time acquiring what they want in life. People can hardly force themselves to eat a good breakfast.

    My job is to take people from Instagram nobody to Insta-celebrity. (It sounds ridiculous, but results don’t lie.)

    Now, what if you raised your engagement by 100%, or 1000%?

    It is not difficult to do, although almost no one does. Just check out our website. There, you’ll learn how to garner Instagram likes and followers like mad…easily.

    Our super savvy, confidential service quickly sends likes to your pictures a few minutes after you have posted them.

    The “Top Post” section, all of a sudden, doesn’t seem that far away.

    Sound too good to be true? Here’s what you’ve got to do to get a taste:
    1. Visit https://picturestorm.surf
    2. Put in your Instagram username.
    3. Your 3 most recent uploads are getting 10 – 15 likes. Just like that.

    Hitting the Top Post page will 10X your Instafame. But you have got to do more than just want it—you’ve got to do something about it. Are you willing?

    Happy image-uploading.
