The industry operates through a convoluted an d opaque supply chain\, and is largely unregulated. It contributes disprop ortionately to greenhouse gas emissions\, microplastic ocean pollution\, t oxic chemical use\, depletion of soil\, deforestation and landfill waste. \n \nThe Fashion Sustainability and Social Accountability Act (The Fashion Act) aims to be the first of its kind\, a groundbreaking policy addressin g the fashion industry in the fashion capital of the world. By creating a global foundation for the fashion industry’s environmental and social pr actices\, The Fashion Act’s objective is to put an end to its destructiv e impacts on the environment and exploitation of garment factory workers a round the world.\n \nThis webinar asks the questions: what does the Fashio n Act intend to regulate\, what does it demand of apparel manufacturers\, how will it hold brands accountable\, what is needed next\, and – along with other legislation around the globe such as the new European Union Str ategy for Textiles – can it begin to reshape the environmental landscape of the Earth for future generations to come. \n \nModerator: To be det ermined\nPanel: \n \nMaxine Bedat: \nExecutive Director at New Standard In stitute \nAuthor\, Unraveled: The Life and Death of a Garment \n \nMichel le Gabriel: \nEducator and Researcher \nGlasgow Caledonian New York Colle ge \n \n​The Honorable Anna R.
