Programs and Initiatives:
Responsibility in Fashion Information Source: Providing centralized and comprehensive open-source information and resources to the global fashion industry, including a starting-point and guide to responsible design, sourcing and manufacturing, a comprehensive listing of open-source tools, global organizations and consultancies, industry facts, internationally-recognized basic labor rights, and information on responsible materials and responsible cleaning methods. Retail Packaging Program: Responsibility in Fashion is currently working with the CFDA + Lexus Fashion* Initiative on a program to improve responsibility in fashion-industry retail packaging. Responsible Sourcing Initiative: In today's fashion industry, small and medium-sized brands lack the financial resources, time and patience to navigate the competing databases and libraries of responsible materials and sources. A centralized and easily-accessible responsible-sourcing database has the potential to stimulate global innovation and competition, and help to build a global market centered on cost-effective responsible technologies and materials. A cleaner and more ethical fashion industry needs responsible sourcing that's centralized, comprehensive and accessible to all. Consumer Empowerment Program: Responsibility in Fashion is planning a consumer awareness and empowerment program providing global consumers with a revolutionary responsible-shopping solution.
