Fashion Revolution Week is coming: become a Fashion Revolutionary.

This year marks the 10th anniversary of Fashion Revolution Week, a global movement advocating for a safe, clean, transparent, and accountable fashion industry.

Did you know that Australians, on average, purchase 56 items of clothing each year? Our Global Scan Report & Clothing Data Report reveals that Australians manufacture and import over 1.4 billion units of new clothing annually, primarily from non-sustainable and non-durable materials — with 200,000 tonnes ending up in Australian landfills. 

This year marks the 10th anniversary of Fashion Revolution Week, a global movement advocating for a safe, clean, transparent, and accountable fashion industry. 

Fashion Revolution Week is an annual campaign that unites the world's largest fashion activism movement for seven days of action. This year, from April 15th to April 24th, Fashion Revolution will celebrate its milestone with ten days of action and events worldwide.
