Fast fashion brands lead us to believe it’s as easy as buy, buy, buy. There’s no time to wonder about the humans behind T-shirt production because we’ve found a good deal. 

Now, as we learn more about the human cost of garment production, we know fast fashion cannot continue. Garment workers are facing food insecurity, poverty, and unsafe working conditions. Changemakers everywhere have the power to work collectively and spark lasting change. 

Sure, regulating labor rights and protecting garment workers won’t be easy. But Ayesha Barenblat, founder and CEO of Remake, shows us we can all play a part in advocating for garment workers. In a conversation with Cory on the Social Entrepreneurship and Innovation Podcast, Ayesha explains why workers' rights are central to the future of fashion.  

Fast fashion can’t continue distancing itself from the people behind the products. In this post, we’ll dive deeper into factory working conditions and provide a roadmap for protecting garment workers and advocating for a better future together.

In our Episode with Ayesha, we discuss: 

  • What are the Conditions Like in Fast Fashion Factories?
  • Why is Fast Fashion Labor Hard to Regulate?
  • How Should the Fashion Industry Treat Workers?
  • The Roadmap to Garment Worker Protection
