A relative of a Rana Plaza victim cries at a 2016 memorial created for the garment factory workers.
BANGKOK — Ahead of the fourth anniversary of the Rana Plaza building collapse in Bangladesh, Human Rights Watch called on apparel and footwear brands to join a pledge promising transparency in their supply chain.
Signing on to the pledge would require brands and retailers to provide a regularly updated list of their manufacturers. Details should include the address of the facilities, the type of products made and the number of workers hired by each supplier factory. This pledge was hashed out by a coalition of nine labor and human rights organizations and unions.

"That's something that resonates with me too because I'm so locked into a number. If I go over that number it completely ruins my day so it's nice to get detached from the number on the scale." - Chelsea Handler on Kelly LeVeque's book "Body Love." #wwdeye (📷: John Salangsang)
