The True Cost

June 01, 2015


A new documentary came out on Friday in select cities called, The True Cost, that shines a light on the effects of "fast fashion". We all marvel every time we see an ad for a top that costs $9.95. How do they do it? Well, it isn't pretty. 

The fast fashion industry isn't sustainable as it is now but we, as individuals, have the power to make those changes. The environment and, more importantly, the lives of those workers in the developing world are at stake. The designer, Vivienne Westwood, says it appropriately: "Buy less, choose well, and make it last." So whether you choose higher priced items that you know are made responsibly or second hand goods, your clothing choices DO matter.
