5 years ago today the Rana plaza factory in Bangladesh collapsed..24th April 2013.
1138 people died
Making it the fourth largest industrial disaster in history.
There were 5 factories in rana plaza manufacturing for many global brands with 29 brands identified in the rubble!
Garment workers mainly young females had highlighted concerns of working that day as the cracks had been identified the day before but their bosses insisted they worked or they faced losing their monthly pay packet!! Tragic really that this disaster could have been helped and these young people’s lives spared had it not been for the hideous greed of the supplier the retailer and the consumers.. It’s a time to stop and think
Do we consumer, retailer and supplier, ever stop to think about how we get what we want? Like really think about it. Who makes our clothes and our products and who pays the price?
What do we really want?
or WHAT DO WE REALLY NEED?
The current fashion industry model has become dated and unethical.
Bigalittlez are growing more and more concerned at the lack of transparency and responsibility of market leaders. The rate of consumption and aggressive supply and demand all of which is not sustainable.
WE REALLY NEED CHANGE!
There are so many things that can be done.. Write to the government..sign petitions..follow ethical movements..shop sustainably!! COLLECTIVE FORCE is greater than we think..we need a revolution and we need one now.
SocialInnovation is the bedrock of our culture.
