SHE-IN / SHE-OUT
As we have educated ourselves about fast fashion over the past year we have learnt some hard truths about Shein. From the cotton they use, to the treatment of their workforce, to the detriment of our planet.
It is easy to do your own 'homework' on this organization.
Canada has recently passed legislation stating that goods made by forced/slave/child labour will not be allowed into the country.
It is time to make our politicians put their words in action and have such organizations removed from Canada.
Please help by sending the email below to all the listed ministers.

abroad and by providing access to remedy when harms occur;
● Result in meaningful consequences for companies that fail to carry out and report on

We've let them know.....
The youth from The Giving Tree Unionville, along side a group of Uyghurs, who's community have been adversely affected by companies like SHEIN, came out to protest the existence of such an entity in the City of Markham. We have logged a complaint to CORE as well as to the federal government. Our petition has been read and we patiently await the next steps. Canada has a policy in place prohibiting goods made by slave labour from entering the country. We demand that this policy is put into effect.
