Detox the fashion industry

Some Greenpeace news for ya!

detox-grafffWe need water for everything we make, but dirty industries who use it and pollute it with toxic chemicals are impacting on people’s health across the world.

You can read all about how factories in China try to hide the pollution in a simple flipbook, right here.

Greenpeace is committed to a toxics free environment, where industries, people and government work together to remove harmful chemicals from products we buy every day.

The Milan Fashion Show, one of the world’s top haute couture spots, has had an unexpected and green start this year as Italian Greenpeace  activists unveiled a ‘vertical catwalk’ on the façade of the splendid Sforzesco Castle.

But that’s not all! Yesterday, a bunch of Italian Greenpeace activists covered the famous sculpture by Maurizio Cattelan, also known as “The Finger”, with a giant green glove.

Greenpeace has made about 3 green statements to the Milan Fashion Week after the “clean graffiti” they left on the streets of the Milan’s Fashion district and the vertical catwalk.

They chose Cattelan’s sculpture because the erected finger indicates only one way to go: towards a cleaner future free of hazardous chemicals and deforestation.

Want to know more about the Detox Fashion Campaign? Go to the Greenpeace website and to find out what you can do. More than 400,000 people have joined the campaign since November! Even a small gesture can make a big difference; Whether it’s signing the manifesto , spreading the word about this campaign through twitter or covering a statue with a green glove. Let’s make a statement, let’s do this together 🙂

Lets point fashion brands in the right direction!
