On March 30th, 2020, Remake launched a petition demanding brands to #PayUp as a response to reports coming in from suppliers that brands had cancelled in-production orders as a result of retail constriction following the outbreak of coronavirus.

With14,000+ signatures to date, a worldwide movement including actresses Nat Kelly, models Cameron Russell, Arizona Muse and Amber Valletta, and our own Remake community has mobilized, and we have reached over 4.7 million people in the past month with our #PayUp petition.

Since launching the petition, 15 brands have now agreed to pay for back orders, totaling upward of $600 million in Bangladesh. Conservative estimates are that the #PayUp campaign has helped unlock $7.5 billion in unpaid orders globally.

To be removed from the #PayUp petition, brands must promise to pay suppliers for all orders that were cancelled or paused as a result of coronavirus. Furthermore, brands must agree to pay for these cancelled and in-production orders in full (without asking suppliers for discounts) and in a timely manner (without extending payment terms unless financing options can be provided).
