The True Cost by Andrew Morgan


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.
