Fashion's Deep Water Impacts - Toronto premiere of RiverBlue
The jeans you’re wearing are killing our rivers.
It’s time to make the sustainable manufacturing of clothes fashionable.
Internationally renowned river advocate Mark Angelo journeys through some of the world's most pristine waterways to some of its most polluted, in an unprecedented global adventure that reveals the dark side of the fashion industry. Through harsh chemical manufacturing processes and the irresponsible disposal of toxic chemical waste, our cloth making is destroying rivers.
One major fashion brand alone uses 28 trillion gallons of freshwater a year. Both stunning and shocking, RiverBlue is a beautifully shot, high-definition call to action, to manufacture our clothing in a more sustainable way.
Engage in a panel discussion after the film with:
Filmmakers: David McIlvride, Lisa Mazzotta, Roger Williams
Partner: University of Toronto Student Chapter, Ontario Water Works Assoc.
Panelists: Kelly Drennan (Fashion Takes Action), Kelly Okamura (GooderGoods), Elizabeth Hendricks (WWF-Canada), Roger Williams & Lisa Mazzotta (filmmakers)
