Une étude à lire.Qu'est-ce qu'un salaire décent pour les travailleurs de l’industrie de la mode?

L’Asia Floor Wage Alliance a calculé le salaire décent dans différents pays. Un salaire décent devrait couvrir les frais de subsistance de base d’une famille.

Ce salaire a été comparé au salaire minimum dans l’industrie du vêtement. Les chiffres montrent qu'il y a une énorme différence entre le salaire minimum et le salaire décent dans la plupart des endroits où nos vêtements sont fabriqués.

En guise d’exemple, le salaire minimum au Bangladesh ne représente que 18% de ce que devrait être le salaire décent. Pour la Chine, c’est plutôt 53% du salaire décent.

Photos du journalTextile dyeing is the second largest polluter of water. Read on Via @hollyrose.eco Most of the clothing we wear gets its vibrant colours from synthetic dyes, made with the help of non-renewable resources like petroleum & coal.⁣

Colouring fabric is an incredibly resource-intensive process, releasing 70+ toxic chemicals into the water supply, including known carcinogens which poisons soil, water, and air increasing risk of cancers for all that live in the area.⁣

The dye in our clothing and textiles is yet another form of #environmentalracism as well, as the majority of the people directly affected by the poisons emitted, are low-income, minority communities - Begging to question whether clothing dyed with anything but #plantdyes is truly ethical or sustainable (it's not).⁣

Textile dye is the second-largest polluter of clean water globally, after conventional agriculture; however, there are simple solutions to this problem on our farmlands.⁣

If the garments are dyed with plant materials created with #regenerativelyfarmed harvests , then the dye not only halts harm, but also contributes to carbon #drawdown, reversing #globalheating and preventing #climatebreakdown. ⁣

Some of the colours on the #naturaldye wheel even make use of potential #foodwaste as well, creating a positive practice which diverts it from the landfill. Reduced food waste is the 3rd most effective way of reversing #globalwarming, according to @projectdrawdown . When food waste is used for textile dye, it is a byproduct , extending the life & resources pulled from our soils & flora.⁣

This type of production would be difficult to implement on a mass scale, but large scale systems are part of the problem with the ethics and #sustainability of the fashion and textile industry as a whole. One of many reasons I believe that supporting small businesses who are actively doing the right thing, is the best way to invest the #futureoffashion , combining #fairfashion #ethicalfashion #sustainableashion & #regenerativefashion in one serene space . ⁣

How Does it Work?

1

The community brings used clothing, shoes and linens to your location on a specific preselected date. The used linens must be washed first and must be in good enough condition to be used by disadvantaged families.

2

Our trucks will go to your location on the chosen day and hour to pick up the donated clothes, shoes, boots, sandals, and used linens (bed sheets and pillow, towels, dish towels, blankets, etc.)

3

The organization receives a sum of money based on the total weight of collected items that will be used to finance a specific project.

This partnership is essential for optimal success.

Everyone can take part in this means of financing which is easy, ecological and does not require any investment of time.

Josée Boivin, Executive Director, CPE Les Poussineaux

The Super Recyclers...

... is a novel, humanitarian project and a simple way for families to collect funds for the benefit of their children's school.

In addition to doing a good deed...

... we have a chance to win a grant for our school. It's rare to have this possibility!

A teacher

Fantastic idea!

It's not everyone who can participate in a fundraising activity. The Super Recyclers allow us to participate and to mobilize without taking money out of our pockets ... it's so easy.

A parent

Mobilizing all the way!

Thanks to the Super Recyclers, more employees informed themselves about the cause and came to meet us than we'd ever seen before.

Fondation les petits trésors

We've had so much success...

...that the parents now ask us about doing a Super Recycler's clothing drive.

Management for the Félix Leclerc School

So simple for us!

During Crohn's & Colitis Awareness Month, the staff rallied to the cause supported by the company. Employees brought the clothes on site.
