Here is a starting point for your E-Mail to a CEO of a major fashion brand

I am aware that ______ has a sustainability department, but I am also aware that the mass production of clothing from large companies like ______, are still major contributors to the global water pollution problem. Companies like yours need to take greater steps to lead the way for the health of our future.

As a concerned consumer, I ask you these questions:
1. What is______ doing to improve internal water efficiency to minimize your suppliers’ impact on water? There existing filtrations systems that many large brands like yourself have not implemented.
2.What is______ doing to eliminate the use of all hazardous chemicals and achieve zero discharge in all production procedures associated with the making of______ products especially related to products like blue jeans where there is currently heavy use of chemicals in the washing and distressing processes?
3.What is______’s position as to the corporation’s responsibility to save rivers in the countries that they are manufacturing clothing?

Thank you for your time.
