In the two years since 1,133 workers were killed in the Rana Plaza factory collapse in Bangladesh, the folks behind Fashion Revolution Day have worked to make sure a similar tragedy never happens again—and this Sunday, April 19th, representatives from sustainable fashion brand Zady (one of the event's organizers) will be in Union Square to provide awareness on the connection between fashion and the environment.

Though it'll technically be part of the annual Earth Day New York celebration, Fashion Revolution Day is set for April 24th, with April 19th acting as the official kickoff for a series of events throughout the U.S. On April 22nd, Zady will make public the details of its organic T-shirt, WWD reports, from a ginning mill in Texas to a spinning, dyeing, cutting, and sewing facility in North Carolina, providing customers with the kind of information that's often kept quiet with fast fashion chains.
