Fashion & Consumption - We don't buy it: demanding fashion that's fair

#Wedontbuyit! Demanding fashion that's fair

Global Action Plan

 

Session for secondary schools

 

Let’s come together to use our collective voice on social media to demand fashion that’s fair!  

 

Our highly consumerist society teaches us that owning more equates to indiviual success and at Global Action Plan, we just don't buy it.

 

Advertising convinces young people that buying more will provide them with a sense of satisfaction. But relentless purchasing only creates short highs and fails to address our underlying need for a sense of self worth. It is also fuelling the unsustainable use of our planet's resources.
