Join The Great Fashion Fast: pick ten items of clothing and get people to sponsor you to wear only those things for a fortnight or a whole month.

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 and get people to sponsor you to wear only those things for a fortnight or a whole month. (If you’re feeling really brave, you could even have someone else pick them for you!)

There are a few exceptions – we’re all for personal hygiene, so underwear, sports gear and uniforms are not included in the ten items! 

The money you raise will be used to help vulnerable communities around the world adapt to the climate crisis and lift themselves out of poverty.

I'm ready to take on the challenge and help tackle the climate crisis

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 CO2 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.
