The True Cost of the fast fashion industry
Late is never to late – but I have just watched the film “The True Cost” – a film I would recommend for everyone to watch and afterwards tell everyone they know, to watch. The fast fashion industry is outrageous and some of these aspects are portrayed very well in the movie. Clips of people going shopping-crazy when Black Friday hits the stores, just after have watched a women leaving her child behind, to work under conditions where making demands for human rights gets awarded with beating and abuse, just gives you goose bumps.
If every consumer make demands, the industry would change – simply by saying:
“People should not die when producing the t -shirt I wear”.
In my following blogposts I’ll try to give ideas and a overview of where you as a consumer can shop more socially responsible and environmentally friendly brands.
When looking a little on the further work the team behind the movie have done, they have tried to make a list like this as well – I will look into this and recommend several stores and brands the following months.
