THE BANGLADESH ACCORD ON FIRE AND BUILDING SAFETY EXPIRING
The easiest way is to publicly tag brands that HAVE NOT yet committed to the Accord’s extension and expansion on social media with any of the following sample copy (or craft your own!):
- @tommyhilfiger Garment makers shouldn’t die making our clothes. #ProtectProgress #SigntheAccord
- @Zara 1,132 garment makers died at Rana Plaza. How many more have to lose their lives before you #SigntheAccord
- @H&M #RanaPlazaNeverAgain
