About this resource

Blockchain can accumulate a garment’s information from the raw material stage all through its production line, and make that information accessible to anyone with a QR Code or NFR reader on their phone. Whilst the technology is in its early stages, it carries many possibilities for enhancing transparency and consequently driving sustainable and ethical decisions in the fashion industry.

Why we recommend this resource

Greenwashing and the lack of transparency within the fashion industry is a major cause for concern, but blockchain technology is a fantastic example of how scientific innovation is helping to tackle environmental and social injustices. This article shines an important light on the incredible work of research and fashion pioneers, as well as reminds the consumer to question where our clothes come from and how they were made.
