Fashion revolution is a movement demanding the clothing industry to be more transparent and fairer to all involved. It makes us rethink our buying habits. Have you ever wondered where the majority of your clothes are made? Are you curious to find out what happens to the clothes you donate to charity or return to shops like H&M? Are you interested to know how your garment purchases impacts the planet? Do you want to learn more about eco-friendly care for your clothes?
