Why Wear it Kind 

No animal deserves to suffer in the name of fashion and consumers are increasingly demanding clothes that cause no harm to people, animals, or the environment.

We expect brands to take a stand on the issues that matter to us1 and we are increasingly unlikely to buy from brands that conflict with our ethics².

True ethical fashion incorporates human rights, environmental protection, and animal welfare. Fashion not only has to look and feel great, it has to be great. For too long now, people, animals and the environment have been the hidden victims of a multi-billion-dollar industry.  

But that is changing, and the future of fashion is kindness. 

Animals

 

Over five billion animals end up in fashion and textiles annually, and many of them will suffer in countless ways for the sake of clothing. 

The missing piece.


Over and over, we see horrible exposés showing animals being treated cruelly. Unsurprisingly, research has found people are becoming increasingly concerned about the well-being of animals within fashion. It’s clear that the fashion industry needs to change! 

People

 

One in six people on the planet work in the fashion industry, and 80% of them are young women. Most of these people are exploited, live in poverty and work in unsafe conditions.

We need more kindness for people.


Human rights abuses remain rife, and basic health and safety measures rarely exist. We need to work together to ensure people and animals are better protected in the production of our clothing.  

Planet

150 billion items of clothing are made every year, most of which end up in a landfill. Chemicals used on farms to grow clothing materials, especially chemicals used to dye and launder clothes, are causing a devastating environmental impact. 

Our environment is suffering for fashion.


This is compounded by the greenhouse gas emissions produced by the clothing industry, estimated at a whopping 10% of global emissions, and adds further pressure to our delicate ecosystems. 

Take our Wear it Kind pledge and join a global movement of people, designers, and brands committed to ensuring that animal welfare is established as the essential third pillar of ethical fashion.

"It can’t be ethical if an animal has suffered in the process:"

Jessica Medcalf, Global Corporate Engagement Manager (Textiles) at FOUR PAWS 

Together we are making a difference!
