Reflecting on April: #EarthMonth and #PlasticWaste 💚🌍
April is coming to an end. Throughout the month, you probably came across lots of information surrounding the topic of #EarthMonth and #EarthDay. We also just had Fashion Revolution Week, which happens every in April during the anniversary of the Rana Plaza factory collapse, a disaster which killed 1138 people and injured many more on April 24, 2013. During Fashion Revolution Week, brands, and producers are encouraged to respond with the hashtag #IMADEYOURCLOTHES and to demonstrate transparency in their supply chain.
If you haven’t been too distracted with Game of Thrones return, the latest Avengers Movie, or that messy Mueller report, I’m sure over the past month you might’ve seen related articles from news outlets around the world, organizations and activists, and even items and promotions from brands that claim to make a difference and urging you to be a more conscious, responsible consumer, including us!
“Every Day is Earth Day,” everyone says. Sometimes, it does take an unofficial holiday to really celebrate and drive the key points home. What are those, you might ask?
Number 1: protect our planet. 🌍
Number 2: because it’s dying, and we’re the ones killing it. We're also the only ones who can save it. 💚
“There’s no planet B."
