Join The Great Fashion Fast

01 Mar 2022

Wear just ten items of clothing for a month, get sponsored, and help tackle the climate crisis.

Raise money. Live more sustainably. Help beat poverty.

Fast fashion is harming God’s creation and pushing people further into poverty. But you can help reverse the trend with The Great Fashion Fast.

It’s simple: pick ten items of clothing (or, if you’re feeling brave, have someone else pick for you!) and that’s all you’re allowed to wear for the month of March. The money you raise from sponsorship will help vulnerable communities around the world adapt to the climate crisis and lift themselves out of poverty.

And by committing to live more sustainably together, we can help bring an end to the throwaway culture that is doing so much harm to creation.

All the info and tips you need to take on The Great Fashion Fast are in our handy guide.

Throwing the future away

Fashion is fun. Clothes can help us express ourselves – not to mention protect us from the elements! But fast fashion’s addiction to excess is having a devastating effect.

The fashion industry generates more harmful C02 emissions than all international flights and shipping combined. This contributes to climate change – making extreme weather events such as droughts, floods and storms more frequent and more severe. And it’s people living in poverty who are suffering the consequences.
