Cambodia textile factory offers new model to improve workers’ lives | Sam Jones | Global development | The Guardian

I came across this article in The Guardian yesterday and had to share it with you.  So exciting to read there are factories working to protect their workers while running a successful textile factory.  Please follow this link directly to Sam Jones’ article in The Guardian.

Fairwear until next time…..

 

South-east Asia’s garment industry has a bad name but decent wages, childcare and labour rights are high priorities for one company breaking the mould.

The True Cost by Andrew Morgan

TITLESLIDE_CLOSE_LOGO_WHITE

It has been far too long since my last post.  I hope there are still some readers out there who are interested in fair trade in the textile and fashion industries.  I just watched “The True Cost”, a powerful documentary on the staggering cost fast fashion is having on workers in the garment district in developing countries, primarily young women.  A secondary problem with our rabid consumption of fast fashion is the impact on our landfills.  This movie also shows the parallels between greed versus the well-being of our environment.

This movie is a must-see for everyone!!!  Please watch this trailer and then considering paying $10 to watch the entire movie.
