Sustainable Fashion Forum
We are here to promote sustainable fashion in Israel,
To create change
And to help others
The Sustainable Fashion Forum
Was founded in September 2016.
We work to raise local awareness about fashion, sustainability, design and consumer issues among professionals, decision-makers and the general public.
Our Facebook group contains a community of more than 3,000 people with dozens of daily posts and discussions on the topic.
Our forum members include activists, environmentalists, academics, designers, consultants and others who are interested in the subject.
Dozens of collaborations and public lectures on behalf of local authorities, academic institutions, local municipalities, the Israel Textile Association and the Fashion Revolution international.
Promotion of local sustainable designers by cooperating with 2BFriendly, an NGO specialized on Impact Assessment, and rating and screening systems for small/medium businesses, in collaboration with expert partner organizations.
- A festive opening at the Tel Aviv Municipality's month of Sustainability in April 2018. Screening of the True Cost movie in Tel Aviv-Jaffa and other Locations around Israel, including in disadvantaged communities, followed by a discussion on the subject.
- As part of Women for climate we are creating an ongoing project, advised by Tel Aviv municipality. The Fashion Library, our current flagship project, will allow us to communicate and educate, mostly teenagers, about sustainable fashion possibilities. This will enable students to exchange clothes continually and renew their wardrobe while feeling connected to trends.
The Forum members have been interviewed about sustainable fashion on TV shows, podcasts and magazines.
Why do we need the forum?
The Fashion industry is one of the highest polluters in the world. It consumes excessive amounts of natural resources, for example, fuel for transport, it uses harmful chemicals and produces massive quantities of waste. Furthermore, the industry is known to violate human rights in developing countries.
Shopping has become a habit rooted in our culture that has nothing to do with wearing clothes. As a result, today we have four times more clothing than only 30 years ago. After short usage, of our once favorite items, it becomes textile waste. The forum’s goal is to raise awareness of those issues and to stimulate a change in the industry.
