WHAT'S IN MY TEE?
Beyond the Label (BtL) started as a partnership with TEDxLA to educate Angelenos
about the true social, environmental, and health cost of their fashion purchases.
BtL is now a charitable organization that addresses the question “What's in my tee?”
to encourage shoppers to consider what their T-shirt is made of.
Your pores are like tiny little mouths and whatever you put on them, they eat!
- 8.5 billion people will need clothes in 2030
- 60+ million people work in the fabric & fashion industries
- Fashion is arguably the #2 most toxic industry in the world.
- 80,000 chemicals in commerce are free to be used without regulation ~ Unacceptable Levels
People affected along the supply chain & retail: farmers, cutters, sewers, bleachers, washers, fabric dyers, nearby communities, retail employees, your family and you.
Chemicals to think about: pesticides, fiber extractors, bleach, detergent, dyes, mordants, printing fluids, finishing agents, fire retardants.
Now is the time to #MakeShiftHappen
Let's join together to make a cleaner (healthier) fashion industry for ourselves,
the people we love & the people who make our clothes!
