Fashion Takes Action is a non profit organization established by Kelly Drennan in 2007, with a mission to advance sustainability in the entire fashion system. We have worked with 2000+ designers and brands – both from across Canada, and internationally. Our role is to identify and remove the barriers to sustainability.

We do this through:

  • Building awareness – through 75+ events such as marketplaces, networking, clothing swaps, tradeshows, runway shows, award shows; and speaking engagements at colleges and universities as well as Think 2030 and TEDx Climate Countdown
  • Educating both the public (consumers) and the industry – through WEAR and My Clothes My World
  • Collaborations and partnerships (both local and global) – including Environment & Climate Change Canada, INLAND, Fashion Industry Advisory Panel to the City of Toronto, Circular Economy Leadership Canada, Canadian Standards Association, Retail Council of Canada, Accelerating Circularity, Textile Exchange, Fashion For Good, Fashion Revolution, Good on You, the UN Fashion Alliance and more
  • Conducting leading research to accelerate change such as our textile recycling feasibility study.
