Learn more & take action

In creating Sweat, we researched the social and ecological impact of fast fashion as well as how the garment industry can become more sustainable and just. We invite you to learn more and to take action. And, if you only read one book on the topic, make it Tansy Hoskins’ Stitched Up — “the anti-capitalist book of fashion”.
