EARTH DAY LIVE – FITTTING FASHION FOR THE FUTURE
HOW NEW YORK STATE’S HISTORIC FASHION ACT HOPES TO CHANGE THE FASHION INDUSTRY FOR GOOD
May 13th, 1:00 PM EST
The Fashion Sustainability and Social Accountability Act (The Fashion Act) aims to be the first of its kind, a groundbreaking policy addressing the fashion industry in the fashion capital of the world. By creating a global foundation for the fashion industry’s environmental and social practices, The Fashion Act’s objective is to put an end to its destructive impacts on the environment and exploitation of garment factory workers around the world.
This webinar asks the questions: what does the Fashion Act intend to regulate, what does it demand of apparel manufacturers, how will it hold brands accountable, what is needed next, and – along with other legislation around the globe such as the new European Union Strategy for Textiles – can it begin to reshape the environmental landscape of the Earth for future generations to come.
