Petition Reconsider and accept MPs' proposals to clean up the fashion industry
The fashion industry is currently unsustainable. It is destroying our planet and exploiting the people who make our clothes. After looking into the impacts of the industry, the UK's Environmental Audit Committee issued 18 recommendations. All of them have just been rejected by the UK government.
"Fixing Fashion: clothing consumption and sustainability", Environmental Audit Committee (19 February 2019). See "Conclusion and recommendations"
"Ministers reject fast fashion impact advice", BBC (18 June 2019) https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/science-environment-48667641
