Be curious. Find out. Do something!
It is not a secret anymore that fashion industry is the second biggest polluter in the world and that people who work in this industry starting from growing cotton till sewing our favorite clothes in factories are paid poorly, have very bad working conditions and have no access to health care or education. This must change!
