Information for the press
Clean Clothes Campaign is available to answer media inquiries regarding labour rights issues and corporate behaviour in the global garment and sportswear industries.
What we can and cannot help with
Clean Clothes Campaign has a specific focus on labour conditions in the ready made garment industry. We have no in-house expertise available on other related topics, such as the environmental impact of the apparel industry or labour rights in cotton farming.
We can provide photographic material on many of the topics that we work on. Please be aware that we have less audio-visual material available. Most of the material that we have is used in our campaign videos.
We believe that stories about the garment industry should not only be written from the perspective of the activist or consumer, but should also include the voices of people on the ground. We would be happy to help you reach out to organisations in garment-producing countries where our network is present. We however cannot help you to give you access to factories. If you want to speak to workers directly, please realize that takes a lot of time, effort, travel and translation. We can guide you in the direction, but unless we have a specific campaign with worker involvement we can not set up interviews on demand.
For press information you can contact the Clean Clothes Campaign international office in Amsterdam, The Netherlands: +31-20-4122785 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please also consider contacting the national coalition in the country where are based, or where the topic you are writing about or brand you are investigating is located. Find more information and contact details on our global network here
