Hi Luna and Sun Fam!
This year marks the ninth year since the Rana Plaza disaster in Bangladesh.
Rana Plaza, a building in Bangladesh, housed a number of garment factories, employing around 5,000 people. The people in this building were manufacturing clothing for many of the biggest global fashion brands. More than 1,100 people – mostly young women – died in the collapse and another 2,500 were injured, making it the fourth largest industrial disaster in history.
At Luna and Sun we believe no person or animal should die for fashion which is why we want you to ask brands - Who Made My Clothes?
The first photo below is one of our lovely makers- Lyanis from DNA Manufacturing who is the manufacturer we have worked with since we started. The second photo (below) is from Potter Textiles whom we source our linen and this photo is one of the team members who makes our fabric in their mill in China.
You can find out more about who makes our clothes, fabric and materials from our Transparency Page.
This week it's important to hold brands accountable and keep an eye out for greenwashing. If you're unsure if a brand is truely an ethical/ sustainable brand you can check outGood On You orEthical Made Easy who have done the checks for you.
It's easy to get confused with all the greenwashing terms out there and just because a brand says they are ethically made unfortunately doesn't always mean they are.
Sadly the only way the big fast fashion brands will change their unethical practices is when their profits are effected. So the best thing to do is not shop with them and encourage your friends and family not to too.
If we each change one person's view on fast fashion collectively we can make a BIG difference.

Together we will make a difference 🙏🏽
