This past September, we launched the Out of Fashion campaign, urging fifteen major fashion brands to make sure that their fabrics don’t contain forest destruction and human rights abuses. For years, this controversy had gone unnoticed -- but not any more!

Thousands have signed petitions, stickered controversial products and sent tweets during Fashion Week. While some brands are starting to respond, some of the worst companies have not taken action.

As of today, we’re focusing on the most famous, and most destructive, laggard in the industry: Ralph Lauren.
