TO A HIGHER STATE
We declare climate and ecological emergency.
We must face the truth and act now.
Fashion is a powerful engine for cultural change. As a community of creatives, fashion designers and fashion users, we must use our resources, privilege and influence to save what can still be saved. Higher Studio started out as a clothing rental company but we realise there is so much more that needs to be done and saving the planet must be our priority.
1. We will use the most effective strategy to maintain the wellbeing of life on earth for generations to come - we believe this is to use non-violent direct action and civil disobedience to demand system change and net zero carbon by 2025.
2. Fashion must have a positive impact. To be relevant during in this crisis, we must seek ways to clean up and regenerate the environment. We must make waste useful and keep it in circulation. Creating with a less negative impact is not acceptable - we must say no.
3. We must actively counteract the cultural and economic forces that got us here and explore alternatives.
