Today, the Berne Declaration (EvB) and Greenpeace Switzerland award American textile giant Gap the Public Eye Jury Award for their continuous refusal to contribute to effective reforms in the textile industry. The Public Eye Awards shine a light on the current and most serious cases of human rights violations and disregard for environmental protection and sustainability by corporations.
Sign our petition demanding a living wage

Pay garment workers a living wage
I want the women and men who stitch my clothes to earn enough to feed their family, pay their rent and live a decent life. A living wage is a human right, for all people all over the world. I say it's time to pay a living wage to all garment workers.
Global trade unions join Clean Clothes Campaign in the Pay Up campaign. The petition calls on all brands that had connections with Rana Plaza to Pay Up into the Rana Plaza Donor Trust Fund before the first anniversary on April 24th.
Clean Clothes Campaign is disappointed that H&M's newly announced Roadmap to a Fair Living Wage fails to clearly state a living wage benchmark, we believe without such a definition it is both impossible to create a 'roadmap' to achieving its payment and similarly impossible to measure the roadmap's success.
The Clean Clothes Campaign and IndustriALL Global Union are today urging all brands and retailers linked to the disaster at the Rana Plaza building in Bangladesh to work together to sign up to a credible and collaborative process for delivering compensation to the victims of the disaster.
Since 1989, the Clean Clothes Campaign is dedicated to improving working conditions and supporting the empowerment of workers in the global garment and sportswear industries.
We educate and mobilise consumers, lobby companies and governments, and offer direct solidarity support to workers as they fight for their rights and demand better working conditions.
