Have you ever wondered about the real price that the fashion industry hides behind the discounts of Black Friday?
If we continue with the current patterns of production and consumption, we will seriously โ€œshop till we dropโ€ dead, due to environmental destruction, animal cruelty, and workerโ€™s exploitation. For the sake of our wellbeing and the survival of our planet, we must break the destructive cycle of consumerism. So, while fast fashion brands are preparing for Black Friday, we call you all to Block Friday, a day in the name of Repair โ€“ Rewear โ€“ Rebel.ย ๐Ÿ†˜๐ŸŒ๐Ÿ†˜

We will have plenty clothes. You can pick up whatever you want, and leave a donation if you would like. Please, bring the clothes, books, and objects that you would like to get rid of: we will add them to our collection. Everything left at the end of the day will be given to Ontsporing to put in their free shop. If you would like to give us anything before the 27th, just message us and will organize a pick up.ย ๐Ÿ’š๐Ÿ’š

No matter how much we try to recycle, the continuous production and fast dismissal of new goods just isnโ€™t sustainable at all. Disposable fashion and the constant rotation of new trends and product have a huge environmental impact. The fashion industry is actually the second biggest polluter in the world, after the oil industry.
๐™ƒ๐™š๐™ง๐™š ๐™จ๐™ค๐™ข๐™š ๐™›๐™–๐™˜๐™ฉ๐™จ:
๐Ÿ˜ฒย The fashion industry causes 10% of all CO2 emissions, more than all international flights and maritime shipping combined.
๐Ÿ˜ฒย It landfills or burns the equivalent of 1 garbage truck of textile every second, which increase emissions
๐Ÿ˜ฒย It is one of the largest consumers of the world’s water supply.
๐Ÿ˜ฒย It pollutes the oceans with more than 50000 tons of chemicals and micro-plastics.
๐Ÿ˜ฒย It destroys 85 million trees every year, which poses a serious threat to biodiversity due land use and habitat loss.
๐Ÿ˜ฒย The Western world now consumes 400% more textiles than we did just 20 years ago and this drastic upward curve is predicted to continue.
And itโ€™s not only the planet to suffer the exploitation of fashion brands: While the fashion industry is estimated at 2700 billion euros, garment workers are so underpaid that they often canโ€™t survive on their salary.
๐Ÿ˜ฒย In 2018, western countries imported $127 billion fashion garments identified as at-risk products of modern slavery.
๐Ÿ˜ฒย The ILO estimates that 170 million children are engaged in child labor, with many making textiles and garments to satisfy the demand of consumers in Europe, the US and other countries.
