At Fashion Revolution Week 2015, we set up a vending machine in the middle of Alexanderplatz, where passers-by could (supposedly) buy T-shirts for 2 euros. The interest seems, if you look at the video of the experiment, at first frighteningly large. But those who put in two euros are first shown shocking images of the production facilities on a screen instead of the T-shirt. Potential buyers are then given the choice of buying the T-shirt anyway or donating the money.
Based on the idea of the viral hit 'The 2€ T-Shirt - A Social Experiment', Fashion Revolution Germany has rebuilt the vending machine and offers it for rent. With this we want to generate education and awareness for sustainable fashion and strengthen the valuable work of the non-profit Fashion Revolution Germany.
For the first time, this will be relaunched at Re:Publica and will be set up in the Makerspace. We will show who is behind the 2€ t-shirt vending machine and for which purposes you can use it.
Together with Re-Shirt we will equip the vending machine and thus give the 'customers' our vision of a better, more transparent and more circular fashion industry.
