About this resource

A fun and playful introduction to the social and environmental impacts of the fashion industry, which produces 10% of global CO2 emissions and uses 1.5 trillion litres of water annually. This interactive game uses storytelling to explore the issues, as well as giving positive solutions as to how our everyday actions can have a positive impact.

Why we recommend this resource

This is a great way to start conversations about the fashion industry. By following the journey of an everyday item of clothing you can discover how to bring positive change in the way we make and consume clothes – and do our laundry! This game can be played individually or in a classroom (for key stage 2 and 3) and can be used in conjunction with our teaching resources.
