Spreading the word
Did you know that the fashion industry is the second most polluting industry in the world? Did you know that it takes around 2700 liters of water to produce 1 T-shirt? Did you know over 1100 people died during the collapse of factory Rana Plaza, Bangladesh? Did you know that luxury brands are burning their unsold stock and fast fashion brands own over billions of dollars of unsold stock?
Dressing people by undressing the industry is the mission of the sustainable fashion brand Unrobe. Unrobe liberates the industry from these bad habits. It was also the title of Daan Ubachs his presentation at ABN Amro Retailer of the Year Awards last week. As the Retail Champion 2018 and the Retail Rookie of the Year 2019 Ubachs had the privilege to speak in front of the best retailers of The Netherlands.
Ubachs spoke about my journey in the world of fashion, the good and the bad things I've seen the past 12 years. About my experience and time in Asia, the ethics and sustainability and about Unrobe’s mission. It's important to spread the word and create awareness about the fashion industry.
