Sup Travellers?! I had no idea that April 24th was Fashion Revolution Day but don't feel too bad if you didn't know either. The annual event only started in 2013 to remember the 2013 collapse of Rana Plaza in Dhaka, Bangladesh. Over 1000 people working in the garment factory were killed while producing clothing for brands such as J.C. Penney, Benetton, Walmart and others in suspect conditions.

"We’re not asking people to boycott their favorite stores, we need to change the fashion industry from within by asking the brands and retailers where we like to shop 'Who made my clothes?'" Fashion Revolution Day founder Carry Somers told Marie Claire. "Consumers didn’t cause this problem, but that doesn’t mean that we shouldn’t be part of the solution," she added.

Fashion Revolution is encouraging people to take a stand and show fashion brands they need to start taking responsibility for their actions. To learn more, follow the #fashrev hashtag on social media.
