About this project
This quiz is part of Across Women's Lives "Wear and Tear" series. Reporters trace the story of the global garment industry from manufacturing towns in the United States to growing factories in Bangladesh, where working conditions have been slow to change in the wake of the 2013 Rana Plaza disaster that claimed more than 1,100 lives.
The information in this interactive comes from interviews with several international ethical clothing groups.
Brand information comes from Good On You, a social impact business that works to educate shoppers about the effect of their purchases on people, the planet and animals. First launched in Australia, the Good On You shopping app expanded to North America in 2017 and provides ethical ratings for more than 1,200 fashion brands. The group continues to grow its database of brands, while working with brands to help them achieve better ratings and better transparency for consumers.
Materials information comes from a Canadian-based organization called TrustedClothes, which connects organizations devoted to sustainable clothing and uses a volunteer network to host local clothing swaps and maintain a website with consumer-focused information and from interviews with materials experts from Fashion Revolution, a global advocacy group working to improve sustainability in the fashion industry.
