A moment to consider: Ethical Fashion

By now I assume most of us have heard about the terrible tragedy in Bangladesh.  I urge you to take a moment to consider your next purchase.  Look at the label.  I would be very reluctant to purchase something made in Bangladesh these days considering the abhorrent conditions that the garment workers are forced to endure.

This is the price we are paying for fast (cheap) fashion.  The cost is too high.

  1. Oh my gosh! I did NOT hear about this. How horrible. It’s tough to stick to ethics when you’re bombarded by bajillions of clothes that are made in foreign countries, and the price of buying made in the US clothes is so much higher. But this is definitely eye-opening. I’m not sure how widely reported (if all) this was in the US because I don’t really watch TV news anymore.

  2. I agree … when I was in college I refused to buy items from J Crew because they used sweatshop workers. My friend who was in marketing actually used me as an example in one of her classes, and apparently they talked about “J Crew girl” off and on during the semester. Hah!!
