Guilt-free clothing petition

If you were affected by the recent footage of a factory collapse in Bangladesh, please show your support for an enforceable fire and building safety agreement.

Avaaz's petition to the CEOs of H&M, Gap, and other fashion brands says:

As citizens and consumers, we urge you to immediately sign an enforceable Bangladesh fire and building safety agreement, or risk fatal damage to your brand image. The agreement must commit you to pay for routine, independent inspections and safety upgrades for your supplier factories. Your companies and other multinationals profit from cheap labour, and can do much more to reduce the dangers of the places where your products are made.

You can sign it here.
