Fair Wear Foundation (FWF) is an international verification initiative dedicated to enhancing workers’ lives all over the world.  They work closely with a growing number of companies that produce clothing and other sewn products and that take responsibility for their supply chain.  Through sharing expertise, social dialogue, and strengthening industrial relations, FWF increases the effectiveness of companies to improve labor conditions in the garment industry.

FWF recently came out with a new publication, the Fair Wear Formula, which describes their approach to improving labor conditions in garment supply chains.  While laying out the complexity of the problem, the booklet demonstrates that the solution will be complex as well and suggests comprehensive, multi-faceted actions that will require coordinated efforts of many stakeholders, including you, the consumer!

It's a beautifully designed and well-written book that I highly recommend taking the time to look through.  This is the pdf version, and you can get your hands on a paperback or hardback copy by emailing
