28th July, 6.30-8pm: FoodTALKs – Fast Fashion: ‘Human and environmental cost of fast fashion’ with Noreen from MADE.ngo

Every Garment Has a Name was started in 2013 to raise awareness about workers’ rights and the garment industry after the collapse of Rana Plaza in 2013 which killed 1127 workers. Inspired by the Islamic teachings of workers’ rights and justice, MADE came together with organisations across the UK to take action against poor working conditions and to bring corporations to account. Despite corporations signing accords to improve working conditions, millions of workers’ across the world are still risking their lives working in unsafe factories, many working below minimum wage. MADE are re-launching this campaign with a talk and discussion about Fast Fashion and the impact for people and planet. FREE, Donations appreciated
