Tag us @XR.BoycottFashion @extinctionrebellion #XR52 #BoycottFashion
2. NOMINATE YOUR FRIENDS
Tag 3 friends and tell them why they should take part in the challenge. You can use or adapt the text below:
We are in a climate and ecological emergency. If we don’t act now, we will face mass food shortages, the collapse of our civilisation and extinction. We can no longer afford to use land to grow crops to produce textiles, or to extract oil to produce synthetic fibres and pollute the air and water.
There is now only one way for the fashion industry to be sustainable - to stop pointless consumption and say no to virgin resources and fossil fuels. We must use what we’ve already got, regenerate the natural world, and envision cultural and economic systems based on the well-being of people and planet.
Fashion is not to die for. Join me in saying no to new clothing and yes to life on earth. This is a 52 week fashion boycott, in which together, we radically change our relationship with clothes. Sign up by clicking link in bio @xr.boycottfashion
