6:00pm Eco Fashion & Short Film Program:

Detox Your Fashion

Greenpeace, 4 mins

A documentary about the reality of the fashion industry and the impact on the environment, the health of people. Also, includes the solution and what we can do as people who buy products.

Reject Child Labour!

Who Made My Clothes?, 2 mins

Around 260 million children are in employment around the world, according to the International Labour Organization. Children speak up for children’s rights.


The People Bringing Transparency To The Fashion Industry

Who Made My Clothes?, 4 mins

The majority of the people who make clothes for the global market live in poverty, unable to afford life’s basic necessities. Many are subject to exploitation; verbal and physical abuse, working in unsafe and dirty conditions, with very little pay. Fashion Revolution created a movement around the world about #whomademyclothes

Made in Mexico

Re/make, 14 mins

Re/make is igniting a conscious consumer movement to turn fashion into a force for good. Our original documentary footage brings you face to face with the women who make our clothes. We share facts and stories to help you break up with fast fashion and provide seasonal curated collections to remake your closet with fashion that respects women and our planet. #remakeourworld
