Growing awareness

Oxfam’s list isn’t the only one shining a light on the ethics of the fashion industry.

There’s a bunch of resources out there with the same goal – like Good On You, an Australian app which assesses brands’ environmental impact, labour conditions, and animal treatment.

Baptist World Aid’s Behind The Barcode also has initiatives to end worker exploitation in the industry; they also have guides into ethical fashion and ethical electronics in Australia.

Meanwhile, Fashion Revolution’s social media campaigns and events reveal the faces behind the garment industry around the world, encouraging people to ask, #WhoMadeMyClothes?

Editor’s note: a previous version of this story incorrectly published the number of casualties at the Rana Plaza factory complex in 2013, and also referred to the incident as a factory fire, rather than a building collapse. This story has been updated to reflect this.
