“Who makes my clothes?” is the question Safia Minney wants us all to ask. The harsh treatment of garment workers overseas is not a well know issue. Safia’s Kickstarter campain has a goal to fix that. The book and campign want to expose the reality of modern day slavery in the fashion industry with stories and facts. Not only does it aim to spread awareness but she also claims to offer specific actions people and business can take to reverse such atrocities.
2. Safia is Awesome
She actually started her UK fair trade clothing business, People Tree, in Japan. Awesome. She has a love for people and has built her company around fairness, transparency and quality clothing. She has won numerous awards including, Top 5 Ethical Retailers in UK, Eco Warrior Award, and Cosmopolitan Best Ethical E-tailed Award. Lots more awesome.
3. Awesome Rewards
If you pledge towards the campaign, not only do you get to help promote awareness, but if you pledge over a certain amount, they give you stuff! Awesome stuff.
