I recently watched a really compelling film about the fashion industry called The True Cost. It focuses on the fast fashion industry and the consequences of putting the mighty dollar before the well fair and care of the people and planet. It’s raw and truthful without preaching to the choir. I think in the west most of us have heard about the poor working conditions of the people in such country’s as Bangladesh, but there’s such a disconnect or perhaps at times this information can be to horrific to process that we decide it’s easier to turn away then to face these issues head on. I encourage you to take some time and watch this documentary, it’s truly eye opening and empowering to know, as a “consumer”, the True Cost of fast fashion.
