A task to get things started
Whether you’re taking this Challenge or not, we’d like your input…
Check through the clothes that you’re wearing right now (get a friend to help you!). Are you wearing anything that was made in Bangladesh?
When you get home, do a fashion audit. Look at the labels in all of your clothes, and see what you have that was made in Bangladesh.
Then, tweet photos of your ‘Made in Bangladesh’ labels to us @followthethings with the hashtag #whatnottowear or email them to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
