SF Green Film Festival Presents:
San Francisco Sustainable Fashion Week International
Eco Fashion Program 2019
"Understanding the Stories within the Apparel Industry."
Green is the new black in Fashion! The future of fashion is equitable, sustainable, and empowering! The fashion industry is shifting to a conscious business respecting their workers and preserving natural resources rather than destroying the Earth.
Join us for a look at recent campaign films from Greenpeace, Fashion Revolution and Re/make and a panel discussion on sustainable clothing - plus an eco fashion catwalk! An evening of films and conversations about the stories of those working in the apparel industry; brilliantly captured in the featured short film produced by re/make.
Discover the importance of Who Made My Clothes? ...a worldwide initiative by Fashion Revolution. Sustainable Fashion is changing the world!

The majority of the people who make clothes for the global market live in poverty, unable to afford life’s basic necessities. Many are subject to exploitation; verbal and physical abuse, working in unsafe and dirty conditions, with very little pay. Fashion Revolution created a movement around the world about #whomademyclothes
