Fashion victims campaign
Viscose, a common textile in the clothes we wear, is often produced using dangerous chemicals that are being dumped in lakes and rivers, and pose a health risk to textile workers and locals in the affected areas. WeMove Europe gGmbH and our partners have mobilized hundreds of thousands of European citizens to demand the textile industry clean up their act.
And our outcry worked: recently H&M and Zara promised to do just that! Since then, fashion giants Marks & Spencers, Tesco and ASOS have also publicly committed to sourcing viscose exclusively from factories that don’t dump toxic water into rivers and streams.
The campaign has gathered over 300,000 signatures.
