Last week, 386 garment workers died and many more were hurt when a building collapsed in Savar, Bangladesh. Three-hundred eighty-six lives. For what? So that brands like Walmart, Disney, and JC Penny can make a little more profit.
I wanted to share an interesting perspective on the recent tragedy in Bangladesh and how it's a reminder of the price of cheap fashion. My sister posted this link on Facebook:
Author Elizabeth Cline talks about the high price of cheap fashion and how our clothing is increasing coming from countries like China and Bangladesh. She addresses the issue of shopping ethically on a budget. Her advice? Shop where you want to shop, but get more out of your clothing and don't treat it as disposable.
