Change Your Shoes


Overview

The footwear sector is a key part of the broader fashion industry. However, in contrast to the textile sector, the grievances of the production processes of the leather and shoe industry are largely unknown. Change Your Shoes is a European initiative which stands up for an ethical, sustainable and transparent shoe supply chain.
We activate people as consumers and citizens to demand better working conditions for the makers of our leather shoes. We carry out research on the working and environmental conditions in the leather and shoe production as a basis for the dialogue with EU citizens, decision-makers and shoe brands on these grievances. We also collaborate with trade unions and labour rights groups and support their struggles for better working conditions in production countries.


 

We believe

1) Workers in the shoe supply chain have the right to a living wage.
2) Workers in the shoe supply chain have the right to safe working conditions
3) Consumers have the rights to safe products and transparency in the production of their shoes.

CHANGE YOUR SHOES is a partnership of 15 European organizations and 3 Asian organizations plus 20 associates.
