1. Tell your pals
However you choose to #StartSomewhere, let the world know. Positivity sparks positivity, and you could be the small change that inspires someone else to make one too.
2. Sign the manifesto
In 2018, Fashion Revolution launched its Manifesto, which covers everything from fair and equal pay to cultural diversity, transparency and accountability across the entire chain. If, like us, you believe these are all things everyone should be on board with, you can show your support by putting pen to paper here.
3. Upcycle your Yaks
Yaks are like cats (stay with us), with at least nine lives to get your wear out of. Head over to our IGTV to be inspired by the many imaginative ways our resident #YakCreatives choose to upcycle their dungarees. Remember, giving new life to your clothes means keeping them in circulation: less waste, less landfill.
4. T@g a brand
Companies are being more transparent about their supply chains, but many still keep their cards close to their chest. Help to open up the conversation by snapping a photo of the label from a piece of your clothing and sharing it on social with the hashtag #WhoMadeMyClothes. It’s a fair question, right?
5. Choose brands you trust
Supporting brands who are open about their supply chain sets a good example. For other shoppers and for other brands. And if you think retail therapy feels good, it feels even better when you know exactly where your clothes come from.
6. Watch & learn
Inspiration is everywhere, if you know where to look for it - start on Youtube. Settle in for a mind-boggling viewing of 'The True Cost', the groundbreaking documentary that asks us to consider who really pays the price for our clothing.
7. Wear it. & wear it again!
Bored of your look? It happens. But instead of hitting the shops, think about how you can change things up within your existing wardrobe. Restyle, embellish, mix and match pieces you never thought to before. Need some inspiration? Look to our ever-imaginative, community over on our IGTV - Or follow hashtag #InMyYaks.
8. Trade your Yaks
Make your wardrobe go further by swapping and sharing clothes with your friends, or other Yakkers over on our Buy/Sell/Trade Facebook group. Or keep it local by searching out swap shop events in your area. After all, sharing’s caring, and who knows what preloved gems you could bring home.
Our goal has always been to inspire a brighter, bolder tomorrow through creativity and positivity. But changing the world doesn’t happen overnight (trust us).
From ensuring supply chain transparency to partnering businesses that care, we’re always learning and listening to unearth the most pressing social issues facing our planet. And this #FashRev Week, we’re inviting you to start your journey too. Whether it’s upcycling your Yaks to prolong their lifecycle or giving preloved clothes a good home, everyone can #StartSomewhere
We all #StartSomewhere. And for us, getting closer to our supply chain is what matters! Meet a few of the wonderful farmers that collectively grew the cotton for our 2 new organic GOTS-certified dungarees!
We've created two pairs of very special dungas in partnership with our organic cotton supplier to put a face to the people #whomadeyourclothes.
