Together, we can make sure that Ralph Lauren hears our message: It's time to eliminate forest destruction and human rights abuses from fashion.

The fashion industry has a dirty secret – forests across the world are being destroyed, processed into pulp, and being used to create the fabrics we wear every day.

To make popular fabrics, including rayon and viscose, forests are cut down to make way for monocrop tree plantations. Trees from both the forest and the plantations are cut down and go through an incredibly toxic process to create what is known as dissolving pulp, a white fluffy material that gets spun into threads and woven into cloth.

Forest destruction for fabric has to stop. That's why RAN has launched our Out of Fashioncampaign, to demand the fashion industry commit to forest friendly fabric.
