Transparency is incredibly important when it comes to understanding the overall impact your clothing has on the world. Which is why we should all be demanding this sort of open dialogue from our favourite brands. Pointing to tragedies like Rana Plaza, for instance, Change.org points out that “virtually no public information was available about the brands that were sourcing from these factories. The only way to hold these apparel companies accountable was to interview survivors and rummage through the rubble to find brand labels.” Four years down the track, it is now time to demand industry-wide transparency. And the new Transparency Pledge does just that.

Geared towards apparel and footwear brands, the Transparency Pledge aims to create a level playing field in the garment industry. Brands that join must publish key information about their supplier factories, which is a very necessary step in properly understanding how your clothes were made. Developed by a civil society coalition, the Transparency Pledge is a crucial starting point for shedding light on who made your clothes. In order to put this into action, coalition members wrote to more than 70 apparel companies, asking them to agree to implement a Transparency Pledge and publish information about their factories.

In particular, the campaign asks Forever 21, Urban Outfitters, Walmart, Primark, and Armani to commit to the Transparency Pledge and implement it by December 31, 2017. According to Change.org, “this is the first step in making the industry more transparent and fostering an environment of accountability and protection of human rights of workers.” So if you care about fostering a more positive fashion industry for the future, then back your beliefs up with the actions to match.
