A Welcome Message—

If you care about women, pay equity, and the planet, you’re already one of us—and we invite you to #WearYourValues.

Collective action is key to our movement to bring equity and sustainability to the fashion industry. Up against systemic issues, it’s easy for us as individuals to feel powerless. That is why Remake is fostering a connected, creative and action-focused community. Our name, “Remake” is based on rebuilding connections between us and the people who make our clothes. We unite unlikely allies across the fashion ecosystem—from influencers, creatives and brand executives, to unions, legislators, and garment workers—locking arms to fight for change.

Addressing fashion’s impact is one of the foremost climate and social justice issues of our time.

Today, 93% of fashion brands don’t pay garment workers enough to live on. Of the 70 million highly-skilled garment work force, 80% are women of color who not only face low pay and wage theft, but who are also disproportionately impacted by floods and heat from climate change— which fashion is increasingly contributing to through massive overproduction.

Despite the scale of the problem, we’re confident we will end the fashion crisis in our lifetime.

In the past 8 years, Remake has exceeded our biggest hopes and expectations, evolving from a storytelling platform into a global movement. Together we have saved lives, dismantled exploitative loopholes, and put millions of dollars back into the hands of garment workers. We are connecting the clothing industry’s biggest problems with effective solutions. This is the work we do every single day — and you, our community, propel us forward.

With gratitude and love,

Radical Collaboration

We believe meaningful change requires collective action and radical collaboration among fashion workers, lawmakers, civil society orgs, businesses, and individuals. We unite like-minded people worldwide to amplify impact and drive systemic change.

Accountability

We reject empty sustainability promises and vague goals from an unregulated fashion industry in favor of measurable, science-based progress. We campaign to pass laws, win court cases, and make brands sign on to binding standards that hold them responsible for labor violations and environmental impact. We stay true to our community and mission by not accepting money from brands.

Education

In an industry fraught with misinformation and lack of transparency, knowledge truly is power. We’re committed to spreading awareness on the harms of fashion, as well as solutions. Our free resources, ambassador and fellowship programs, and events make it easy for all ages and professionals to join the conversation on human rights and climate.

Intersectionality

We believe that social and environmental justice are linked. What good is organic cotton harvested by slave labor, or earning a living wage while your livelihood is threatened by climate change? Guided by intersectional values, we promote eco-friendly practices, living wages, and safe working conditions. We amplify the historically excluded voices of garment workers in sustainability conversations globally and only support worker-led policies.
