Fast Fashion is not cheap; it costs the Earth! The industry is responsible for high carbon emissions, huge waste, pollution of waterways, exploitation of workers and promoting a throwaway culture. On this Black Friday, we say ‘NO MORE’.
We’d rather go naked than dress in fast fashion!
This action is aimed at helping people make the link between fast fashion and the climate emergency and help everyone understand the extent to which the fashion industry contributes to climate degradation.
Come and join this XR Action to End Fast Fashion. Help us spread the word that fast fashion fuels the climate crisis. Help us tell the industry that they must clean up their act. This is a peaceful action that targets fast fashion brands and aims to educate retail workers and shoppers. Newcomers welcome to come and learn more about Extinction Rebellion.
Meeting place: The Public Purse sculpture in the Mall
Dress code: Wear all black clothing !
This Non-violent Direct Action will be happening on the unceded stolen land of the Wurundjeri people of the broader Kulin Nations, we pay our respects to their elders past and present.
